At the beginning of the movie, two teens are making out. Then, the female looks up and recoils in horror, intimating that she's seen one of the giant locusts. However, much later, Dr. Wainright says that before they attack, grasshoppers let out an ear-piercing screech. Yet, there was no screech before the teens were attacked.
