The Andromeda Strain

Show generally

Other mistake: When the team is in the grocery store, they rewind the security videotape (they play it backwards). They stop it at the last activity, when a man comes in and chainsaws his own head off. The body (and head) have gone blue/purple, and since everyone else died the previous night, we can assume that he cut his head off around 12 hours ago. At high speed reverse play, the time they spent rewinding would be only around 10 or 15 minutes of recorded time. (00:32:50)

Continuity mistake: When the team is checking out the grocery store in Piedmont, they exit the building and a Humvee is in the middle of the street where there was no vehicle before. They had driven that Humvee but had parked it elsewhere.

Continuity mistake: When Tobler (the male survivor) approaches the Humvee initially, the driver starts noticing his symptoms just as Tobler stops yelling. Later in the film, in flashback, in the same scene, the driver starts reacting a second or two earlier.
