Corrected entry: In the first half of the film a man look down a hole and shines a torch in it. A monster comes up and kills him but later on in the film the human flashlights can kill the aliens.

Correction: Light only kills them with prolonged exposure all over, so the light from the flashlight would only hurt the monster, not make it incapable of attacking.

Corrected entry: There is a scene right before the suns go down where the English businessman states that "anything (referring to his liquor supply) over 45 proof burns quite nicely." This is not true. Nothing under at least 90 proof will flame up like it does in the movie. And even then, only clear liquor will flame at all.

Correction: I should have realised this, what with being English an' all: In England spirits are sold marked in percentage proof, not degrees proof, for example brandy burns reasonably well at 40% proof.

Corrected entry: If the eclipse only comes every 22 years then what do either sorts of monsters eat in-between-times?

Correction: Ignoring the biology of it, in the movie the monsters/aliens attack and eat each other so that's probably what they eat in between eclipses.

Corrected entry: When it begins to rain, Riddick orders Fry, the kid, and a man into a cave. He shuts them in with a boulder. Then, Riddick gets the cells to the ship and, when he starts the ship up, Fry appears in front of him. How did Fry get out of the cave?

Correction: Fry doesn't appear in front of the ship out of nowhere. It shows her climbing out the top of the cave and running back to the settlement.

Deliberate mistake: In Paris' death scene, he blows alcohol onto his torch that illuminates the creatures around him. However the area is still illuminated after the light from his torch has disappeared. (01:12:05)

Riddick: I truly don't know what's gonna happen when the lights go out, Carolyn, but I do know, once the dying starts, this little psycho fuck family of ours is gonna rip itself apart.
