Brotherhood of the Wolf

Corrected entry: In the fight scene at the end, Vincent Cassel motions his sword-flail back towards himself which flies into him. In the following shot, you see the sword enter him again and then hear the sword penetrate his body.

Correction: It was edited this way for stylistic purposes to give it more of an impact.

Corrected entry: The beast of Gevaudan REALLY existed, although not in this rather fantastic way. During the 1760s, it indeed killed or mutilated over 200 women and children, thus forcing King Louis XV to send a total of 10,000 soldiers into the area to hunt it down. Up to this day, this is the biggest hunt for one single animal in history and resulted in over 300 wolves (among them a rather huge one) being shot. The beast was considered being among the dead wolves and the hunt was called off. Rumor has it, however, that the killing continued for some months after that.

Correction: Actually, after the hunt, the killings DID continue. They stopped only when another huge wolf was killed. This particular beast had human remains in his entrails, and is generally considered to be the real Beast of Gévaudan. A third wolf, possibly his mate, was then killed soon after.

Corrected entry: While Fronsac, Mani and the Marquis are fighting against the beast, it bites the Marquis in the right arm. Later on when he´s standing in front of the window inside the castle, his left arm is injured. (01:24:35)

Correction: Actually, if you watch the fight closely, when the beast bites the Marquis on the right arm, he is then thrown into the rock wall hitting (and breaking/dislocating) his left arm. Thus, his left arm is the correct arm to be in the sling later in the movie.

Continuity mistake: When the members of the brotherhood beat up Mani until he is dead, they pick him up above their heads. The tattoo on his torso appears to be on his right side, whereas in previous and following scenes the tattoo is on his left side. That shot is flipped.
