Plot hole: Tommy leads the mob after the 2nd escaped patient, thinking it's Michael, but Tommy should have known it wasn't Michael. He saw the patient on the TV at the bar at the beginning of the film.

Halloween Kills (2021)
19th Mar 2021
CSI: Miami (2002)
Other mistake: The hotel manager is charged with negligent homicide because he was using propane without the additive, but the victim was knocked unconscious. The additive wouldn't have made a difference.
10th Mar 2021
CSI: Miami (2002)
Plot hole: The whole scenario is fake and everyone at the bar is an actor, so why would they call the real cops.
Suggested correction: To specifically get the cops involved so Neal feels more in danger. LIVE Corporation basically filed a false police report, which Wendy Colton said the cops can talk to the company's lawyers about.

Urban Legend (1998)
Other mistake: Why would Natalie get probation? She wasn't driving. It wasn't even her idea.
Suggested correction: Lawyer here - Not a mistake at all. She would be liable as an accessory, under aiding and abetting. The exact crime varies between common law jurisdictions, but she is laughing along when Michelle is speeding and terrorizing the other driver. In common law jurisdictions, that would be viewed as encouragement of Michelle's committing a crime (she explicitly says she didn't tell Michelle to stop), which is a form of abetting, and indeed carries criminal charges.

Urban Legends: Bloody Mary (2005)
Factual error: Police do not wait 24 hours to start looking for a possible missing person.
30th May 2020
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.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1997)
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.
"In the extended version" has no relevance. Bonus content holds no weight when leveling criticism at the theatrical cut of a film.
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).
Suggested correction: The amulet is necessary to amplify power in order to transfer multiple souls at a time - it's only used in Bride with two souls and Seed with three or four.
10th Jul 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.
Agreed, except the scene I'm referring to takes place before the rest of the family get powers.
She called them "sins" before she held the staff.
He does get told they are sins.
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.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016)
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.
Really? The whole point of the bomb was to destroy any evidence of what happened. That includes the hive.
The point of the bomb was to remove any trace of the virus. Meaning all the inhabitants, dead or alive. Not necessarily the Hive.
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"

Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
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.
Answer: The implication is that the virus has began to effect the environment as well. (Presumably by adapting and mutating).
15th Apr 2019
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.
14th Apr 2019
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)
5th Apr 2019
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.
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.
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.
13th Mar 2019
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)
31st Oct 2018
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.
Suggested correction: They are thrown around quite a bit before even finding out Leo is a whitelighter. Also, he doesn't heal them every time they get thrown or hit in the abdomen. In fact, we usually don't see him heal them at all if they're just thrown across the room or punched in the gut, unless there's a visible wound.
29th Oct 2018
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?
