Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): Eli uses an apparently still moist KFC wetnap to clean himself in an early scene, yet it's established later in the film that at least 30 years have passed since the apocalyptic event. Unopened KFC wetnaps, or any moist towlettes, will dry out in a matter of months under normal conditions.
  • The reason the cannibals' hands shake is because they suffer from Kuru disease. a form of Kreutzfeld Jakob Disease caused by eating human flesh. This is known to cause the limbs to shake, which is why people check Eli's hands throughout the movie.
  • In Arabic, Hebrew, and Aramaic, Eli can be a variant on the name of God. The suffix "i" indicates first person singular possession, i.e., "my El" or "my God".
  • The names of the characters George and Martha are a direct reference to the play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee. The play is about an elderly couple who want children so badly, they invent a dead son.
