Urban Legend (1998)

Other mistake: Why would Natalie get probation? She wasn't driving. It wasn't even her idea.

Factual error: Police do not wait 24 hours to start looking for a possible missing person.

Charmed (1998)

Saving Private Leo - S4-E17

Other mistake: This entire episode the ghost brothers whine that Leo is responsible for them dying and he left them to die, even Leo believes this. It makes no sense. As we see in the flashback even if Leo stayed to help they were blown up moments later and still would have died.

The Harvest (2) - S1-E2

Stupidity: The master goes through all the trouble of making Luke the vessel so Luke can go and kill several people and risk getting the attention of the slayer, when all he had to do is have his minions go out and kidnap a bunch of people and bring them to him and he could've fed off them himself.

Evil Dead (2013)

Plot hole: The book says the demon has to devour 5 souls in order for the abomination to return, but it only got 4 since David saved Mia's.

Suggested correction: In the extended version, we see Mia's soul isn't actually saved.

Suggested correction: Actually, more than five souls were claimed over the course of the film, whether or not you count Mia. Four people died in the cabin, plus the possessed girl in the beginning of the film, in addition to the girl's mother, who is mentioned to have been killed by her. You could also make an argument that the dog counted, technically. You also gotta remember, the book said the souls must be "consumed," and technically, it did possess Mia and she "died" while still possessed before being revived. So by the vague definition of "consumed," she could still possibly count. Either way, definitely more than five souls were claimed over the course of the film.

Bride of Chucky (1998)

Plot hole: In this film Chucky says they need the heart of dumbbells to transfer their souls into human body. If he knew this why did he even attempt it in the first 3 movies? And he never uses it in the next 3 movies, including "Cult of Chucky," where he is successful at the transfer. (Side Note: The series writer has admitted that this was a ret-con added to the film in order to justify the road-trip. So, while still a mistake, it was purposely done).

Shazam! (2019)

Other mistake: Towards the end of the film when they're at the fair, Mary refers to the Sins as "sins", but there is no way she would know that they are sins.

Suggested correction: If you think about it, Billy shouldn't have known either. However he does posses knowledge of these after he transforms and receives the powers. It is evident that when the other children held the staff and said Shazam to get the powers as well, that it also came with some, at least limited, knowledge of these things.

Quantom X Premium member

Agreed, except the scene I'm referring to takes place before the rest of the family get powers.

brianjr0412

Mary may not have known but Billy would, because old Shazam talked to Billy about how a previous champion released the sins into his world.

CSI: Miami (2002)

Death Grip - S2-E4

Plot hole: There is absolutely nothing that would give Horatio any reason to think the severed arm they found was from a previous victim of their suspect. It doesn't make any sense he would pick something as random as the arm that has no connection (other than it being found during the search for the girl) to the case.

CSI: Miami (2002)

Death Grip - S2-E4

Other mistake: While irrigating the alligator's stomach a human foot falls out, there is no way a foot that size could fit through that PVC pipe.

Plot hole: At the end of Apocalypse the Umbrella corporation bombs raccoon City. It doesn't make any sense that they would do this with the entire Umbrella high command underneath the city, as we learn it is in this movie.

Suggested correction: The Umbrella high command is far underground and safe from the surface bombing. There's no mistake here.

TedStixon

Really? The whole point of the bomb was to destroy any evidence of what happened. That includes the hive.

brianjr0412

The point of the bomb was to remove any trace of the virus. Meaning all the inhabitants, dead or alive. Not necessarily the Hive.

Ssiscool Premium member

Yes but literally the head of company in Dr. Isaac's is located there. It makes no sense that they would bomb Raccoon City because according to Final Chapter they wanted the virus to spread anyway. This film franchise is filled with bad writing, crappy continuity, and plot holes.

That I can agree too. Films 4-6 have a aura about them that says "ignore everything previous, well make it up as we go along"

Ssiscool Premium member

Question: In the beginning of the movie Alice says the virus didn't just affect humans, that eventually the rivers dried up. Why would the rivers dry up? The virus doesn't affect the weather.

brianjr0412

Answer: The implication is that the virus has began to effect the environment as well. (Presumably by adapting and mutating).

Halloween (2018)

Continuity mistake: Towards the end when Laurie and her daughter are in the basement, they look up to see light coming through the wood floor and see Michael's shadow. But in all the shots from the first floor it is a tile floor with no spaces for light.

Hell Fest (2018)

Continuity mistake: After Asher is separated from Quinn he's looking around a room with a flashlight and finds the killer. We can see the killer's eyes but a few shots later there is mesh over the eye holes of the mask. (00:52:15)

Smallville (2001)

Fragile - S5-E18

Other mistake: Maddie and her father can control only glass, but when at the Talon he uses his powers to pull the diamonds out of the stained glass. Diamonds aren't glass.

Suggested correction: This may not necessarily be true by the way their powers work. Remember, diamonds are a form of rock that are clear. Glass is made from melted sand, which is a ground up type of rock that becomes clear. The similarities between diamonds and glass are enough that it is possible they could still do this.

Quantom X Premium member

If more explanations of their powers were discussed in the show, one might be able to conclude they do or do not have power over diamonds. However, the script only states they have power over glass, they show no propensity for power over sand itself, or other rocks and minerals. As scripted, this remains as error as it go against what is established.

Bishop73

Diamonds are compressed carbon, not a form of rock. Glass is melted silicon. They're both clear materials, that doesn't mean they're equivalent, otherwise they'd be able to control clear plastic or any number of other things too.

Halloween (1978)

Revealing mistake: When Annie is putting her clothes in the wash the door slams shut and she walks over to try and open it, look closely and you can see her turn the deadbolt and lock it so she can't open it. (00:46:45)

Charmed (1998)

Womb Raider - S4-E21

Other mistake: Piper tells Page that her doctor told her she probably wouldn't be able to conceive because of scar tissue from blunt force trauma. But Leo has healed Piper, if there was scar tissue after Leo heals, then all 3 girls should be covered in scars.

Critters 2 (1988)

Other mistake: When Cindy's dad steps off the freshly hatched critter he lifts his foot to find a bunch of gooey green slime. Where's the fur, eyes, teeth and internal organs?

Charmed (1998)

Saving Private Leo - S4-E17

Stupidity: The brothers are angry at Leo because they say he's responsible for them dying because he chose to save other soldiers instead of them, Leo also blames himself for the same reason and says he should have stayed and gotten them out. But in the flashback it shows Leo helping them and then running off to help other soldiers, after he runs off the brothers are killed just a few seconds later. Even if Leo had chosen to stay with the brother he couldn't have gotten them out in time, the only difference would have been Leo would have died with them, but Leo dies in the same war so he didn't live much longer. Leo's guilt and the brothers' blame don't make any sense at all.

Charmed (1998)

A Knight to Remember - S4-E6

Plot hole: Paige is able to use the enchantress' powers, but in "Pardon My Past", Phoebe can't use her past life's fire throwing power and Leo tells her it's because her past life misused it so she lost it. The enchantress misused her powers so Paige should not be able to use them.
