Other mistake: When Trash first comes back to life as a zombie there is a shot of rain falling and smoke swirling. The shot plays forward, then reverses for a second or two before playing forward again. The rain falls up and the smoke reverses direction.

Continuity mistake: Trash's fantasy about being eaten alive comes true when several zombies attack her, taking bites out of her before she drowns in the Trioxin-water mix. When she reanimates, she's now got no bite marks on her.

Trivia: Not a mistake, just a case of very bad luck that not many realize: In an attempt to escape the infamous "Tar man" zombie, Tina runs up the stairs. She ends up falling through the bad stair, mentioned earlier in the picture. Now think back to the beginning, after Freddy and Frank breathe the gas from the tank. Frank runs over and pukes under the stairs. So, not only is Tina being pursued by a brain hungry zombie, she also takes a high fall, and lands in cold puke.

Trivia: The actress who plays Trash is actually wearing a prosthetic rubber "crotch piece" during her strip scene (and subsequent scenes), which one of the producers insisted on, because he felt full frontal female nudity was "too much" for the film. Ironically, most of the shots of her are from a distance, and her under-region is hard to see, so in the end, the prosthetic was not really necessary. As confirmed in DVD commentary.
