A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors picture

Other mistake: When Taryn turns into a punk and walks down the alley way, you can clearly see Freddy's back along the bottom of the camera shot as if he is trying to pass the camera for the next shot. This happens as Taryn looks down the alley. However, if that was meant to happen, wouldn't she have seen Freddy, and not have been so scared when he approached her from behind?

Zombie Nightmare picture

Other mistake: The coroner examining the bodies in the tennis hall, he says that "lover-boy" is being "fished out of a swimming pool full of blood". But as he himself says later on, Pete was killed when his neck was snapped, there were no wounds he could bleed from. In addition, the zombie dropped him in a hot tub, not a swimming pool.

The Hidden picture

Other mistake: During one of the early investigations of the murder in the record store, there is a scene of the FBI agent and the detective in a Porsche driving through an intersection, almost crashing into a yellow car entering the intersection and swerving away to avoid an accident. Later on in the movie, there is another scene of the Porsche going through the same intersection, at a different angle, and almost hitting, again, the same yellow car, at the same position, doing the same manuever to avoid a crash.

Other mistake: When Evil Ed picks up Jake and throws him headfirst into the lightbulb, watch the speed that he hits it and then falls away from it; he moves far to slowly.

The Monster Squad picture

Other mistake: The werewolf gets blown to pieces by the dynamite, clothes and all. I can understand how the werewolf can reassemble his body as only silver can kill him. But how in the world do his clothes knit themselves back together?

Predator picture

Other mistake: When the Predator sees Billy on the log bridge, there is a cold blotch in the middle of Billy's chest. He's not wearing anything that would make such a hole in his heat signature - it should be the same color as the rest of his torso. It doesn't even match up with the cut he made across his chest; the cut starts much higher than the blotch and the blotch is irregularly shaped, not indicating the smooth line of a cut. (01:15:20)

The Gate picture

Other mistake: Despite the noise of the demon in the house, the tornado clouds outside, the flashing lights from the demon exploding and the fireworks in the sky - not a single neighbor is anywhere to be seen. Even after daylight breaks the neighborhood is a ghost town as we pan away from the actors.

Dolls picture

Other mistake: As the blond punkee pillages the bedroom for anything of value, the unseen giggling/squeaky "doll" voices prepare to attack. She is yanked to the floor by her feet, screaming, as the unseen grab her hands, then proceed to "ram" her face-first into the wall. The large blood spatters do not match the injuries to her face nor her forehead. Also, under normal circumstances, the victim would be rendered unconscious following such force. The punkee is merely a bit disheveled as the unseen toss her outside the doorway. (00:30:50 - 00:31:35)

Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 picture

Other mistake: When Ricky confronts the mother superior in the dining room, Ricky raises the axe above his head and brings it straight down in one single motion. Both Ricky and the mother superior are facing each other. At that angle, it would have been impossible for Ricky to decapitate her. At best her head would have been cleaved in half, but not decapitated.
