Wake of the Red Witch

Plot hole: When Ralls runs the Witch onto the reef, he is at the helm. As she strikes bow on, the wheel spins madly for no reason, as the tiller ropes would not have been affected by the collision.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, the Red Witch has her lee rail almost awash, yet the view on deck and in the cabin following, the vessel is perfectly upright.


Factual error: The movie takes place in 1860, yet Ripper wields an 1862 police model Colt revolver.


Mayrant Ruysdaal Sidneye: I'm not one of those 'eye for an eye' men. No! I always take two eyes.
