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.

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.

Trivia: The attempt to make the locations look wild and uninhabited were obviously not altogether successful. Near the beginning of the movie, some boys are sitting in a sandy clearing in public-school blazers. On the right of the screen you can clearly see a tent peg with ANTONY M written on it. Also, as one of Jack's choirboy-hunters thrashes through the undergrowth, look closely and you can see that he accidentally impales an old beer can.
