Monster Squad

Monster Squad
Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, Wolfman and the Gillman make an appearance in modern day suburbia and it’s up to a group of friends otherwise known as the Monster Squad to save the day. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Monster Squad”.

∙ At the beginning of the movie, two men use dynamite to blow open the door of the castle. There is a close-up of a blonde vampire bride eating a dead possum, which she’s holding up to her face. But in the next rear view of her, as the men come through the doorway, her hands are by her side and empty. It then cuts to another close-up of her and it’s the original view with the animal. She then drops it before being shot with a wooden stake.

∙ Dracula has located Frankenstein in the swamp. When Dracula brings him back during the storm, he connects two wires to Frankenstein’s ears. When the lightning first hits, an overhead view of Frankenstein shows the wires run to his left. In all other views, the wires run to his right where Dracula is standing.

∙ Sean, Patrick and Horace are having the book translated by the German man. Patrick walks across the room to admire an airplane model. When he comes back and sits on the sofa, a left side view of him shows him picking up a glass from the table. It then cuts to a front view of the three boys sitting on the sofa and Patrick’s hands are empty.

∙ Sean, Eugene and Horace have been cornered in the hallway at Dracula’s house. Eugene’s hands are over his eyes during the scene as it cuts back and forth from the kids to the monsters closing in on them. But after the view of the vampire brides walking towards them, there is another view of the kids and this time Eugene is holding Pete the dog. A moment later, after a quick cut of Dracula moving closer, another view of Eugene shows he’s back to covering his eyes.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! When limbo opens and the gusts of wind are blowing everything inside, Phoebe takes cover behind an overturned bench. During the scene, she is behind the right side of the bench. After the hole closes, a far view of her shows her moving to the left side of the bench. But the next close-up of Phoebe shows she’s in her original position, behind the right side.
