Lord of the Flies

Factual error: Take a look at the size of the rock that the boys push onto Piggy. A rock of that size, falling from that height would've exploded Piggy's head like a ripe melon. It also would've crushed his body into a mangled heap.

Audio problem: When Jack says "Anyway, the conch doesn't count on this side of the island", he is clearly biting his banana and eating it, however the dialouge is heard perfectly clear, even though he is eating.

Audio problem: In the scene when the boys are going up the mountain to search for the beast, Roger is standing slightly down the slope in relation to Ralph. After Ralph says something about not leaving the littluns with Piggy, Roger's mouth moves but no sound comes out. He probably had a line there, but they decided to take it out when they were recording the sound.

Lord of the Flies mistake picture

Revealing mistake: After there has been the vote for chief, behind one boy you can see a piece of wood reading "Anthony M," a marker for showing where the actor (Anthony McCall-Judson) should sit. (00:13:25)

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Sam and Eric are sleeping by the fire, Sam is on the left side of the screen and Eric is on the right, and Eric has a rip all the way down the back of his shirt. Later, Eric gets up and moves away and calls for Sam to join him. In the shot of Sam moving towards Eric, his back is to the camera and you can see that Sam's shirt now has the rip - not Eric's.

Factual error: Throughout the film, sea grape vines are seen all along the shore. Sea grapes do not grow in the Pacific, where the story takes place, only in the Caribbean where the film was made.
