Phantasm picture

Other mistake: When Jody finds the dwarf in the car and recognizes it to be his deceased friend Tommy, he has a quick flashback to Tommy in the coffin and the exact moment Tommy was murdered. But the second flashback makes no sense, Jody never saw Tommy being killed and was told by Reggie that he committed suicide.

Zombi 2 picture

Other mistake: In the last shot of the film, the zombies are walking across the bridge to New York City. Below, there are cars on both sides of the bridge driving to and from the island with absolutely no concern for the chaos that is supposedly taking place. I guess the filmmakers couldn't stop traffic for a few minutes to get the shot?

The Amityville Horror picture

Other mistake: When George is in the basement, his son starts walking down the stairs. Suddenly a light bulb shatters right next to the boy's head, he screams, and falls violently down the stairs. But when it cuts to George coming over, he's just walking at a normal pace as though nothing happened. (This is just after they move in, before the evil spirits take hold of George, so there's no reason for him not to be alarmed.).

Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht picture

Other mistake: The carriage brought back the ill Jonathan to Lucy's home in Wisper. But in the road before her door, you can see a modern manhole cover. The film is set in the 19th Century. At that time there was no sewer. (01:13:15)
