During the entire attack sequence the test subject zombie is shown to have 2 individual leather cuffs on his ankles but is able to move freely. However after he is shot the second time and and the 2 lab techs are shown putting him back on the gurney there's a new larger strap binding his ankles together and the tech at the foot end couldn't have placed it there since he goes directly from holding the weapon to lifting the zombie's legs

Plot holes 

When they are first testing the Trioxin gas, one of the signs that it's working is that the corpse attains a heartbeat. Yet, in the first movie, the two characters who were first exposed to the gas *lost* their heartbeats, yet were still mobile. Therefore, heart rate should not be used as an indicator of Trioxin's effectiveness.

Revealing mistakes

This is just after Curt reanimates Julie with the 2-4-5-trioxin about 30 minutes in. When Curt is trying to seal the airlock to escape a zombie, he clearly turns the airlock seal in the "unlock" direction instead of "lock".
