In the first shot of the Black Fortress, the film is being played backwards as shown by the smoke from the burning torches trailing in the wrong direction. Later the same shot is re-used but played forwards, showing the Slayers returning to the fortress after they have kidnapped Princess Lyssa.

When in the trapped spiked room, the spikes are obviously stopped or pulled by the actors when they grab them, especially by the actor on the floor who is supposedly having a spike pass through him. It's obvious he is pulling the spike toward himself.

Q
Why does Ergo say he is "short of stature?"
A
Probably because the role was intended for a little person. Apparently, the idea was that the little fellow and the cyclops would become friends despite their differing sizes and the cyclops's knowledge of his fate. When a suitable little person was not found, the full-size adult actor was cast instead but the line went unchanged.
