Continuity mistake: When Dr. Stone's assistant helps him up from the floor, there's a lopsided, circular diagram drawn on the chalkboard behind them. One shot later, the diagram has changed into a perfectly round circle and has moved itself several inches higher on the board.
Continuity mistake: Dr. Brice's name tag is partially tucked under her collar when she's inside the lab. When she walks into the corridor, the tag has shifted position and is outside the collar. Later, back in the lab, the tag keeps changing from over to under her collar repeatedly.

Continuity mistake: When the lab equipment shorts out after the earthquake, the unconscious Major Brothers is lying with his head propped up against the wall. But when Hamilton reaches him in the next shot, he's suddenly lying flat and is nowhere near the wall.
Factual error: When the energy monster kills his entire research staff by stopping their hearts, Dr. Block brings them all back to life (with their minds and personalities intact) by installing pacemakers. But when the heart stops functioning, brain death occurs within minutes. For this to work, he'd not only have to operate on several people simultaneously, he'd also have to be the fastest heart surgeon on Earth.
Continuity mistake: When Joey turns off the bathtub tap, we can see that the water is no longer flowing. But the sound of running water continues. And a few shots later, the water is flowing once more, even though Joey hasn't gone near the tub again.
Visible crew/equipment: Barton is terrified by a plant-like alien floating outside his spaceship window. The Venusian critter might be a heck of a lot scarier if it bore less resemblance to a furry stalk of celery - and if only its puppet strings weren't showing.
Continuity mistake: Harvey peeks into the small hole in the box using his right eye. On the first view from inside the box, a right eye is indeed looking in. But when the monster appears, a left eye is peering through the hole. The shot cuts immediately back to Harvey, who still has his right eye pressed to the opening.
Continuity mistake: The window in the chamber door changes its size between shots. At first, we can see just Gwyllm's head. But then the window somehow grows so that his head and shoulders are visible. When the window gets smaller again, only part of his head is visible.
Continuity mistake: When Phobos sets up the time converter, the grid on his large round scope has a diamond-shaped pattern. But when we see it from his point of view, the grid comprises perfect squares instead, and contains numbers that weren't there before.
Revealing mistake: When the alien posing as a human is exposed, the OBIT screen shows his "true" alien form while he continues to appear human to the naked eye. The actor in alien costume on the screen copies Jeff Corey's movements, but at one point rather badly shatters the illusion by forgetting to raise his arms when Corey does.
