Bad Taste (1987)

Continuity mistake: When we see Derek land on the rock after taking the fall down the cliff, behind the rock he landed on there is grassy hills and then some big rocks. Later when they say birds were the only thing he can relate to, it shows a shot of Derek covered in gulls, but now the huge rocks in the background scenery have gone, and in addition, the position of his legs have changed too.
