Character error 

Enid's description of the spaceship as "...a glass ball with three metal bands around it..." is nothing like the spaceship miniature or full-size mock-up.

Continuity 

When the alien's gas regulator begins to malfunction when he first confronts Lawrence and Elliott, he tries to turn the knob on his suit while standing up. But the close-up of him trying to turn the knob is an insert shot of a scene late in the film, when he is lying on the ground and again attempting to turn the knob back on.

Miscellaneous 

Enid's car had a blow out on the night it failed. When John Lawrence went back. He simple took a small air pump and pumped the tire up. And went on about his way. When a tire blows out it destroys the tire. At the very least it would require patching before it could hold air. And in most cases the blowout is the result of a catastrophic failure of the tire. And once the tire fails. Even more damage is done to the tire before the car can be brought to a stop. The damage gets worse because you drive on the flattened tire. And the rim damages the tire.

Revealing mistakes 

When Dr. Mears tries to overcome the alien by shutting off his breathing apparatus, you can see the circular hole in the top of the aliens helmet enabling the actor Pat Goldin to breath.
