When Toby is checking everyone to make sure their costumes work, wheelchair-bound Bud is shown standing in a coffin-fixture. Since he was in the coffin costume, there was nothing there to be "holding" the character in a standing position, and he was obviously not in his wheelchair, as he is at standing height with everyone else.

This is a really well-done, early nineties horror flick that actually made it to the theaters. At the time this was a very original movie. It was back in the day before Scream (hate what that movie did to horror) and all the clones dominated the horror box office.
It all starts when a group of film-students looking to raise money, fix up an old movie theater for a one-night-only horror festival. They plan to show 50s horror flicks using old gimmicks (aroma-rama, 3-D glasses, and shock seats). In a box of old junk they find an ancient film reel containing some really graphic and disgusting footage of an insane, demonic looking hippy chanting "posessor" in a reallly sick voice. One of the students is shocked to discover that the man in the film is the man who has been plaguing her dreams lately. The festival rolls around and all is fine until someone starts offing the students one-by-one. It then turns into a whodunnit and things never get boring
I enjoyed "Popcorn" because it was a highly original take on the slasher genre and it was before there was any other films like it too rip-off. There are a few cliches but the acting is top-notch from a great cast. Ray Walston had an amusing cameo and Tom Villard was never better. It's a shame that he's not around any more. The guy had a lot of potential and was very underrated.
I was lucky enough to find this film for sale in a video store that was going out of business. It may be kind of hard to find (don't know if it's available through Amazon) but if you can find it, it's definitely worth seeing.
