Continuity 

In the train scene early on Forrest Tucker is reading a fresh, crisp, unwrinkled newspaper when Janet Munro has one of her bad spells and falls in his lap. As she falls, Tucker's newspaper looks like it has gone through a few takes already.
The jet bomber at the end of the film is an English Electric Canberra, except for one shot where it mysteriously becomes a late-model Gloster Meteor jet fighter.
The bomber is supposed to be attacking a remote mountaintop installation, but the bomb release is shown using stock footage from WWII showing a large city below.
As Forrest Tucker is talking on the wall phone, the watch on his left wrist appears and disappears throughout the scene.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Alan is going to try out the Molotov cocktail on the monsters, he tells everyone in the hallway to move to the far end, except for one older gent with a black jacket, hat and mustache. He tells him to close the door after he gets outside. Apparently the man has trouble closing the heavy door because a balding crew member wearing a white shirt closes the door after Alan.

Errors in geography 

Trollenberg isn't in Switzerland nor in the Alps. The travel posters in the Trollenberg train station depict the Matterhorn probably as seen from Zermatt, Switzerland. Trollenberg however is actually located in Germany's Black Forest nearly 400 KM away. The closest rail station access to Trollenberg is in Loßburg about 4 KM away. Zermatt, however in the shadow of the Matterhorn, does have a train station and cable gondola service to Furi and Schwarzsee.

Revealing mistakes 

In the lab Prof. Crevett states the walls are steel reinforced. Yet when the monster breaks through the office wall where Anne Pilgrim is, there is obviously no reinforcement in the wall or in the piece of fallen wall shown.
