Zombi 2

Factual error: When Brian fires a rifle at the shark from the boat, he fires the rifle multiple times very quickly. The rifle he is using is a bolt action rifle, which must have a bolt part moved before each fire. He does not touch the bolt.

Other mistake: In the last shot of the film, the zombies are walking across the bridge to New York City. Below, there are cars on both sides of the bridge driving to and from the island with absolutely no concern for the chaos that is supposedly taking place. I guess the filmmakers couldn't stop traffic for a few minutes to get the shot?

Continuity mistake: During the underwater scene where the zombie is fighting with the shark, the zombie's arm is bitten off by the shark. However, we see him with the arm after he loses it, and without the arm before it is bitten off.

Peter West: What is all this about the dead coming back to life again and... having to be killed a second time? I mean, what the hell's going on here?

Peter West: Out there! They're coming back to life! They're everywhere.

Newspaper Editor-in-Chief: West, keep the British accent out of your prose. Don't take advantage of the fact that your uncle owns the paper.
Peter West: As if I would.

Question: How was the underwater shark attack scene done? Things I want to know are : How come the shark didn't attack the actor? And how did all the make up stay on the actor UNDERWATER? Does anyone (also) know how long filming this scene took?

Chosen answer: After the original zombie extra fell ill, the shark handler was made up to play the underwater zombie. ther shark was tame, or at least enough to to not attack the handler. The make up would have been latex/oil based, so it would not have been affected by the water. I remember from the commentary that the filming took 1 or 2 days.
