30 Days of Night

Revealing mistake: In the scene Josh Hartnet's character dumps the vampire into the grinder, and gets beat up by the one who turned into a vampire, in the close-up shot of his face where he is bleeding, look at his nose. The patch make up used for supposed ripped flesh is visible. It's colored orange and is rather obvious.

Suggested correction: I am watching this movie as I write this response. I cannot find this mistake anywhere in this scene. Perhaps if you could be more specific with the time and actor you are referring to as neither Josh Hartnet nor Billy Kitka have anything like what you describe on their face.

Revealing mistake: After Eben dies from watching the sunrise his hair burns away and his scalp flakes, however the shadow of his hair can be seen on his wife's face.

Revealing mistake: Watch closely in the Gus murder scene, as the vampires start surrounding him outside in the snow, notice the very first vampire "close-up" shriek, remember the face. After Marlow and Iris attack the couple in their house he puts his claw to the record player and emits a howl as the other vampires throughout the town follow suit with their own shriek, each one gets his/her own close-up, count to the fifth vampire face and you will notice it is the exact same shot used earlier in Gus's murder.

Continuity mistake: The vampire who gets tossed into the grinder mysteriously reappears in the final showdown. You see him twice while the head vampire is fighting with Eben.

Suggested correction: The Vampire tossed into the Muffin-Monster is named Arvin, played by actor Andrew Stehlin. The Vampire in the final scene is named Archibald and played by Tim McLachlan. They look similar due to the prosthetics and CGI used to make the actors look less human but they are not the same character. You are supposed to use the fact that Archibald wears a black jacket and Arvin wears a grey shirt to differentiate them.

More trivia for 30 Days of Night

Question: 2 part question, 1. I know he only just turned but surely Eben would have attacked his friends, the man hiding under the building (who Eben kills near the swings) had only just turned yet did not hesitate and attacked Eben instantly, so why didn't Eben do the same? 2. The head vampire tells the others not to turn anyone, why not? Surely they would want as many vampires as possible to make killing the resisting humans easier and to make up the numbers should they lose any, why didn't he want anyone to turn?

Answer: The hiding man had no idea what had happened to him and so was just running on his new animalistic instinct. Eben became a vampire knowingly, willingly, and so he was able to move past that stage immediately. As you can see by the behavior of the lead vampire, a bit of restraint and humanity is not impossible to achieve. The lead vampire did not want anyone turned because that would mean more vampires to share the blood with. He didn't anticipate much in the way of resistance from the humans, they being weaker, slower, creatures.
