Revealing mistake: In the car chase scene where the cop is after Roland, you can see that there is no key in the ignition of the cop's car.
Directed by: Robert Mandel
Starring: Brian Dennehy, Bryan Brown, Cliff De Young, Diane Venora
Continuity mistake: Rolland Tyler (the set-up special effects guru) and his F/X assistant Andy have one of the "dirty" cops in the truck of an old car. To get a confession out of him, they take him to a secluded place under a highway overpass and continue to ram the car, trunk first, into the overpass pillars with the cop still in the truck. The man buckles, but not before about six rear-end hits. Yet, there is very little dents or damage to the back of the car throughout the ordeal.
Plot hole: After Leo and the clerk finish looking up the fingerprints on the computer, the other cop says that the dead girl was dating Roland. When asked about Roland's address, the other cop says that he can probably find it somewhere and leaves the room. Leo is sitting directly in front of the computer that just gave them someone else's address. (00:47:10)
Lipton: I've really admired your stuff since 'Vermin From Venus.'.
Rollie Tyler: You saw that?
Andy: That's the one that got him deported from Australia.
Rollie Tyler: Bok choi has great texture. Like alien flesh.
Ellen: How are you?
Rollie Tyler: I've been better.
Question: Lipton the Justice Department official tells Rollie Tyler, "I really admired your stuff, ever since 'Vermin from Venus.'" Rollie's female assistant responds, "That's the one that got him deported from Australia." My question is how could Rollie have been deported from Australia, when he was born, raised and lived his whole life there? Where would he have been deported to?

Answer: It was most likely a joke, the movie was so horrible it gave Rollie a bad reputation and probably got him blacklisted.
