Drop Dead Fred mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When in the kitchen, Elizabeth's mum takes off her pink rubber gloves and then goes off-screen, assumingly putting them away. Then when Fred is getting 'killed by her death breath' you can see the gloves sticking out of the kitchen sink, but a shot earlier than that you could see that the sink was empty. (00:20:25)

Scary Movie 3 (2003)

Question: On IMDB it says Scary Movie 3 spoofs Gothika, Final Destination, Darkness Falls and Bruce Almighty. Does anyone know where and when these spoofs happen?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Though I couldn't find any reference to those movies being spoofed, I think it's probably a case of people adding their own meaning to something really obscure - for instance, someone claimed (on the IMDB boards) that in the spoofed "Ring" video when the woman jumps off the cliff and hits a tree, it's a reference to a Madonna music video where she has black hair and a dress, and falls. It isn't.

Visible crew/equipment: Kathryn says "Cecile, I'll call you...", as Cecile and her mother leave you can clearly see a yellow boom mic dip down into the screen, behind a chandelier, above where Sebastian is standing. (00:09:05)

Cube (1997)

Question: Anyone who has the Cube DVD, is it really true that if you put the dvd disc upside down in your player, that there is another film on it?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: Having just tried it with my copy (Region 1), no, it doesn't appear to be true.

Question: Can you still get this film in 3D? I heard that it's only in 2D now, but does anyone actually know if there's a DVD that has it in 3D?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: It's was finally released in 3D on DVD in 2009.

Answer: Friday the 13th Part III in 3D is also available on Blu-ray as part of a set of all the films from 1980 to the reboot. I know because I own it. There are two pairs of 3D glasses included in the tin.

Child's Play 2 (1990)

Other mistake: Many times in the film, it's obvious that Chucky is inactive and not alive, yet supposed to be. When he falls to the floor beside the photocopier, for instance, it's obvious he is off and inactive. (00:58:40)
