Factual error: When the messenger has given the photos and materials to the doctor, the data is given to 'DA' or differential analyzer (just like in earth vs the flying saucers). What is shown is a standard card sorter which does nothing but put cards in order. This machine then outputs its info to a standard plotter which can only produce x-y diagrams. It would be easier to do the verification calculations by hand using a slide rule and some graph paper.

Factual error: This movie makes the same mistake dozens of others have when it comes to tsunamis. When the water is coming into the bay, Dwayne Johnson says 'we need to get over the crest'. Tsunamis don't have crests nor do they act like they are shown here. The water just 'fills' up like in a bathtub.

Factual error: In the scenes on the railroad bridge: (1) the gap between railroad ties varies from 18 inches to 6 inches. Ties on a railroad bridge usually have an 8 inch gap. (2) The muto is stated to be 300 feet tall. In different scenes the muto appears to be taller, shorter and the same height as the railroad bridge. (3) A diesel locomotive averages 60 feet tall which is 1/5 the height of the muto. When the locomotive careens over the end of the bridge, it appears to be much smaller. (4) Railroad flat cars average 60 feet in length making the incomplete nuclear missile on the car almost 50 feet. They are not this large. (5) The railroad bridge appears to be spanning a river but its design is terrible. It would fall down. In the scene with the beached russian sub: the sub is probably a typhoon class which is 500 feet long and 75 feet wide yet the muto towers over it.

Revealing mistake: The inside of the spacecraft is populated with electronic equipment sitting on tables. You can easily identify a Hallicrafters short-wave receiver which the alien tries to smash on Jeff Trent's head. In the B&W version, you can even see manufacturer labels on the front of the units. They are missing in the colorized version.
Continuity mistake: In the scene on the back yard portico where the cop is backed up to the other cast members, the male vampire knocks him down to the ground. It then shows the green 'rays' shooting off the landed saucer and the vampire crumples to the ground. A cast member throws off the vampire's cape revealing a skeleton. At this point the cop is missing from where he fell in front of the vampire. Next shot someone helps the cop up from the ground where he is lying almost touching the revealed skeleton. Also, the skeleton used for the skinny male vampire is the same one used for the grossly overweight Tor Johnson.

Factual error: This movie tries as best it can to convince the viewer the action is happening in the states even though it was shot in Italy. (1) during a news report, the term 'his excellency the governor' is used which is used nowhere in the states. The rest of the newscast is equally odd. (2) the architecture is definitely 1950s Italy. (3) there is almost a complete lack of American automobiles; most of them are Fiats. (4) you can see Lebanese cedar trees everywhere trimmed in the Mediterranean style (tall and skinny). There are many more too numerous to go into.

Other mistake: In the scenes bookending the underwater swim, there is no way to figure out how both pools of water are set up. Sometimes a cast member jumps in and appears to be standing in 3 feet of water and other times cast members dive in as though the water is 25 feet deep. In fact, the whole underwater scene makes no sense at all. Cast members swim up meaning they're going through a hatch in the ceiling or floor, there are railings attached willy-nilly and there appears to be no regular doors anywhere.
