Factual error: In the background, outside the Gimli Slider diner, you can see mountains. Gimli, MB is flat, and on the shores of Lake Winnipeg.

Continuity mistake: The beginning of Phantasm III starts with a flashback from Phantasm II. The car being driven in the flashback is a 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda, with four headlights, two distinctly separate hood scoops, and a hardtop. In Phantasm III, the car is a 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, with two headlights, a single Shaker hood scoop with dual openings, a "Hemi" stripe, and a convertible. It's supposed to be the same car, and in the flashback sequence it's easy to see the differences.

Continuity mistake: During the final shootout scene, Dan hides behind a Mustang when the redneck truckers are shooting at him. The right front tire gets shot out, and the car drops on the rim. The shot cuts to Dan, and the car's right front tire is again shot out. It is not a different view of the shot, it is supposed to be continuous action.

Factual error: In the chase scene where Lou is running after the derelict, they pass a number of vehicles parked and driving on the streets. All of them are correct period vehicles for the late 1950s, except for a white semi truck which is from at least the mid 1990s. The grille and headlights on the truck are the giveaway. (01:23:20)

Factual error: On the plane, June says she is restoring a '66 GTO, and flying to Kansas to get a triple deuce carburetor for it. The GTO didn't have a "triple deuce"; that was an aftermarket carb system made by Edelbrock for multiple car brands. If she's restoring the car, she'd be looking for a Tri-power carburetor set up. The Tri-power and the triple deuce are entirely different manifolds and carbs.

Factual error: The paramedics apply the neck collar to Kick Ass after he was hit by the car. The problem is he is already on the spinal board when it is applied. Neck collars are always applied before putting the patient on the spinal board, especially when head or neck injuries are suspected as would be the case in being struck by a car. Even if there were no witnesses to him being hit, paramedics would assume a neck/head injury if no one saw the incident. Also, the paramedic doesn't immobilize his head before applying the collar, and is far too rough in putting it on.

Revealing mistake: The can of "Chernobly" is supposed to be from Moscow, and the lettering on the can contains at least one Cyrillic letter. However, the name printed on the can is nonsensical, using random Latin and Cyrillic letters in an effort to look Russian, but the letters don't spell a word and means nothing in Russian.

Factual error: In the scene where Lisa's great great grandmother, and the slave Virgil escape to Canada, they enter Canada across a suspension bridge, which has, on the Canadian side, the Canadian Maple Leaf flag. In 1860, Canada was not yet even a country, and the flag was the Union Jack and the Canadian Ensign. The Maple Leaf was not adopted as the Canadian flag until February 15, 1965.

Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, during the "news" clips, it is stated that the Dreads have reservations near major cities. They show a map of North America, and have indicated some places in Canada that have reservations. Unfortunately, most of the locations shown are not near any major cities, and in fact most shown are in the middle of nowhere. The vehicles throughout the movie are current to modern day, not even showing any new models that were released in 2010, so it is safe to assume the movie takes place in the near future. It is not at all conceivable that major cities in Canada would spring up in the next few years for the locations shown on the map.
