Horror movies are hard enough to get through without some pretty clunky errors on the part of the cast and crew.

And it's not just the Troll 2s and Gingerdead Mans of this world - in fact, some of the best horror movies contain glaringly obvious continuity errors and other embarrassing mistakes.

Thankfully the eagle-eyed folks over at Movie Mistakes have taken it upon themselves to create a cringeworthy scrapbook of horror movie errors.

Here's 9 of the best (of the worst).


1) Crew member in the woods - I Spit On Your Grave (1978)

The controversial 1978 rape revenge horror was made for just $650,000 - and it shows. I guess they couldn't afford to tell this crew member where to stand.

2) Disappearing towel - The Cabin in The Woods (2012)

Maybe if Fran Kanz had kept his beachwear on, he'd have made it to the end of the movie.

3) Shifting Taxi - Scary Movie 2 (2001)

Apparently the cab driver wanted them to get his 'good side'.

4) Reset the death - Scream (1996)

Did Rose McGowan go to the toilet halfway through the take or something? Why else would you choose to be squished by a garage door more than once?

5) Self-healing injuries - The Birds (1963)

Alfred Hitchcock: genius, maestro and human plaster?

6) Mysterious victim - Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985)

Oh dear...looks like actor Tom Morga got pissed and killed the director between takes.

7) Door opens itself - Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

Someone hire that door. Immediately!

8) Random blood spatter - A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

Corn syrup is getting more sophisticated these days, clearly.

9) The rear window effect - Carrie (1976)

Nancy Allen and John Travolta cosy up in their car, but look out - the prop guy's watching!
