Doom

Revealing mistake: In the first person shooter sequence, when Reaper gets the chainsaw, there are many parts where he is moving it around near Pinky, now the beast thing, and it does not have a shadow, and at other times when it is at the same angle, it does.

Visible crew/equipment: When the woman is performing an autopsy on one of the dead "creatures" the lights supposedly flicker and turn off. There is a hand visible flicking the switches on the lamp to the right side of the screen. (00:45:40)

Trivia: The marines activate "Kill cams" on their weapons. Doom's precursor game by id, Wolfenstein 3D, had a feature called Kill Cam, which was an instant replay of sorts against certain boss characters.

Question: The scientists of the genetic research lab were first attacked by the Hellknight monster, which was actually the human test subject. Since after the incident the research lab was quarantined and the first Hellknight could have gone nowhere, how is it that the Marine troops didn't encounter the first monster even once when they entered the genetic research lab?

Answer: This is explained by the fact that it was likely hiding, waiting to see what the RRTS would do. After all, the human test subject still had its personality, as far as is known. It would've waited to discover their weaknesses, stalking them like a predatory animal stalks its prey.
