Continuity mistake: After Janet has crashed her car in the swamp, you can see a snake in the tree next to her. In long shots, the snake is a light color, and is completely immobile. In close-ups, the snake moves and is a darker color. Also, when Lobo finds Janet, the snake is back to its original position, even though we saw it starting to crawl down the branch it was on.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, we se Lobo chasing off the two hunters. Lobo is then standing outside in the torrential rain, but when he walks into the laboratory a few seconds later, he is completely dry.

Continuity mistake: When Cpt. Lawton is talking to the secretary at the newspaper, the pencil stuck behind her ear keeps disappearing and reappearing. It is there when the secretary is seen from behind, and is gone every time we see her face.

Revealing mistake: Every time the octopus kills someone, it is painfully obvious that the octopus is fake, as it never moves. The actors are only lying on top of it with a couple of tentacles wrapped around them, and thrashing about to make it appear as thought they are being killed. It never really works.

Continuity mistake: Lobo has a very distinct scar on his cheek in the beginning and end of the movie. However, just after Dr. Strowski has entered the house, Lobo is seen coming down the stairs, and his scar is completely gone.

Revealing mistake: During the fight between Dr. Vornoff and Lobo, Lobo is being thrown through the doorway of the lab and grabs the wall to steady himself. The whole wall bends, as though made of plywood.

The Simpsons (1989)

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: In Episode 7, "Bad Moon Rising": When Cash meets Sasha at The Haven, she mentions "Eddie and his bodyguards being blown away". But Eddie was not "blown away", he was neatly decapitated, and in addition, none of his bodyguards were killed. Julian specifically said that he would let them live to elect a new leader. Sasha was present, and would know this.

Continuity mistake: In Episode 5, "Live Hard, Die Young and Leave A Good Looking Corpse": As Lillie is preparing to cut Zane's throat with her fingernail, she stands with her hand raised above her head for a while. When seen from the front, her hand is balled into a fist with the index finger extended, but when seen from the back all her fingers are extended. The view alternates like this several times, and each time the hand varies between fist and outstretched fingers.

Visible crew/equipment: In Episode 8, "Cabin in the Woods", after the fight in the cabin, Julian is lying injured and weakened on the floor. Caitlin then crawls to him and asks "Are you dying? I feel you leaving me". In between her speaking those two sentences, a boom mic dips into view from the top of the screen and is hastily pulled back up.

Ben-Hur (1959)

Factual error: In the movie, Pontius Pilate is appointed to be governor of Judea around AD 32 (Judah is enslaved in AD 28, spends 3 years as a slave and then at least one year with Arrius before he meets Pilate, who is still not appointed). In reality, Pilate was the governor of Judea from AD 26-36.

The Whole Truth - S2-E16

Other mistake: When the doctor stops Sun on the streets to tell her that Jin is the one who can not have children, at one point the subtitles say "You're husband." The correct spelling would be "Your".

Prison Break (2005)

The Rat - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In Episode 14, "The Rat", when Lincoln and Dr. Tancredi are in his cell together, he says "How it gonna feel when they tighten the belts". He then turns his head so that he is looking the doctor in the eyes, but when the angle changes, he is staring directly in front of himself, and his head is not turned at all.

The Simpsons (1989)

Question: Who was the person Poirot saw wearing the white dressing gown? And why did this person place it in his compartment? To plant "red herrings" like these do not draw attention away from the people on the train, but tells Poirot plain and simple that the murderer did NOT leave the train, but it still on board. So why bother doing it at all, as it only goes against their carefully planned cover story?

Twotall

Chosen answer: They planted this red herring not to divert Poirot's attention away from them - they were the only passengers on the train - they wanted to divert him from the fact that they were ALL involved in the murder, because they all had a common bond with the child whom the victim murdered. Each one made out like they didn't really know anyone else on the train, but they were all in on it.

Criminal Minds (2005)

The Popular Kids - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene when the investigators at the police station realize who the killer is, the deputy enters and says that a revolver is missing. However, when Cory pulls out the weapon in the woods, he is holding a semi-automatic pistol. The deputy would know the difference between the two, but still uses the wrong term (a revolver may be referred to as a pistol, but an automatic like Cory had stolen can never be called a "revolver", as the chamber does not revolve).

Star Trek: Insurrection mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Picard has a cut on the right side of his head in the scene where he, Worf and Gallatin are on the Son'a bridge. It is most visible when he says to Gallatin "Take us into position". After Picard takes the rifle from Worf and Gallatin says "We're approaching the collector", the cut on Picard's head is gone. After he has beamed over to the collector, the cut is back and is bleeding a lot more than it did before.
