Night of the Living Dead

Audio problem: In the scene where Ben nails the door to the wall to keep the zombies out, the sound of the hammer hitting the nail is inconsistent with the pacing Ben actually hits the nail.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Barbara finds a corpse at the top of the farmhouse stairs with its face partially eaten away. Later, when Ben drags the corpse into another room we get a fleeting glimpse of its face and it shows no sign of decay of any sort.

Trivia: The scene where Barbara crashes the car into the tree wasn't scripted originally; an accident that put a large dent in the car before the scene was shot prompted George Romero to re-write the scene in such a way that the dent is justified.
