Night of the Living Dead

Deliberate mistake: When Ben is discussing boarding up the windows to Tom, he says he still needs to get a few spots upstairs. Why would he need to board up the upstairs windows when the zombies have no way of reaching them?

Continuity mistake: A scene is shown where the zombies smash the headlights of the truck that Ben arrived in. Later in the movie, when they attempt to refuel the truck, both headlights are fully intact and lit.

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.
