Corrected entry: The girl gets bitten on left side of her neck, but when she finally dies the bite mark is on the right.
Corrected entry: In the pharmacy, Mrs. Reppler uses a can of bug spray and a lighter to make a torch to burn one of the spiders. She takes the lighter away, yet the can continues to spray flame for several seconds. This is not possible. The flammable liquid, even in a military flamethrower, needs a pilot light to continue burning.
Corrected entry: When Norm is pulled out through the loading door, he is first pulled all the way out. (He sits up, bangs his head, falls straight back down and is pulled another meter or so.) In the next shot, which shows him from above, his entire upper body is still inside the door, before he is pulled through again. (00:26:45)
Corrected entry: Right after the storm they go to the supermarket where they are told that the electric is out there too (and no backup generators either). But as they are shopping, you can see that the glass-fronted freezers are lit up.
Corrected entry: When trees fall over from storms, they pull out a large amount of roots and pull up a large circular dirt base from the ground. The trees that fell over after the storm in this movie only had a few roots and no ground pulled up.
Corrected entry: There is a scene in which David Drayton is arguing with Brent Norton trying to convince him of something in the mist when the camera pans to Mr. Norton and directly behind him are bags of Zapp's Potato Chips which are made in Gramercy, LA and only sold in the South; however, the movie is set in Maine.
Corrected entry: When they finally get the mop lit and they use the fire to fight the creature at the front of the store, the creature takes flight into the ceiling, knocking the bulbs out of one of the fluorescent lights. Both bulbs fall and hit a checkstand, but neither of them break, they just bounce around as if they are PVC tubing (which, for the actors safety, is probably what they were). (01:02:40)
Corrected entry: When the bugs fly into the store and begin attacking people, one of the bugs lands on the chest of Mrs. Carmody. She looks down to it and says, "My life for you." This is a reference to The Stand, also by Stephen King. In The Stand, Trashcan Man repeatedly says, "My life for you" whenever he sees Randall Flagg.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the bugs are flying into the store, one bites a girl on the right side of her neck. But when she is lying on the floor, dying from the bite, it is on the left side of her neck.
