Tales from the Darkside: The Movie

Plot hole: In the third story, "A Lover's Vow", Carola tells Preston that she was able to get his artwork exhibited at a very prestigious art gallery. At the end of the story, it's revealed that Carola is the very gargoyle that killed Preston's friend and swore him to silence. A very big mystery how a gargoyle, posing as a human, would have any connections to an art gallery at all.

Revealing mistake: In "Cat from Hell" the cat crawls back out of Halston's mouth after the clock strikes twelve at Drogans return. As it exits, the mouth and face collapses and is quite obviously made of rubber. (00:54:45)

Continuity mistake: In "Lover's Vow" Wyatt leaves the bar after firing Preston, leaving his drink and newspaper on the end of the bar. In the next shot the paper has changed position and in the next shot it completely disappears. (00:58:50)

Trivia: The third story, " A Lovers Vow" was based on the Japanese folklore of the yuki-onna. However, writer Malcom McDowell decided that the creature should be a gargoyle instead of a spirit.

Trivia: George A. Romero wrote the screenplay for the segment "Cat From Hell," so director John Harrison put two references to Romero's work into this film as a kind of payment. In "Lot 249" when Lee is lying on the couch and the TV is on, it is playing Dawn of the Dead. Later on in the film, in "Cat from Hell," Halston is shown watching the Vampire classic, Martin, directed by Romero. (00:18:30 - 00:52:30)

Betty: I never could do long division. Let's see, how many times does twelve go into seventy-five.
Timmy: Oh, six times, three left over. Why?
Betty: Well, at twelve minutes a pound, that means you have to be in the oven by no later than 1:30. Oh, but evisceration takes at least an hour.

Halston: Don't worry, Drogan. I'll kill your cat for you.
Drogan: Good. Kill it, bury it, and bring me its tail so I can throw it in the fire and watch it burn.

Drogan: We were a dull collection of rich, old, unhappy people.
