Cabin Fever

Revealing mistake: When Bert is running in the woods, away from the local guys, he rubs blood on a tree to make them believe he ran a certain way. Look close, the tree already has red tint on it probably from previous takes that didn't wash off.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy and Paul are hauling Karen into the jeep, Karen spits blood all over the windscreen. Then when we see the shot of Karen falling to the ground and shots after, the windscreen is pretty clean.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Paul and Marcy are having sex, you can see there is nothing on Paul's left wrist. The following shot of them Paul is moving his hands up her back and you can see he now has a watch on his left wrist.

Continuity mistake: When the rednecks are chasing the Blazer the Ford truck they're driving has round headlights. When the kid hits the deer and gets out the truck has square headlights and a different grill.

Revealing mistake: When Jeff walks out the cabin and is shot by police, you can tell he's wearing a bullet-proof vest or padding.

Continuity mistake: When Deputy Winston is talking to Paul, he takes his tinted glasses off, in his left hand. Then in the next shot he has them in his right hand, although he never swapped hands.

Continuity mistake: When Bert first realises he has the fever, he crouches beside the car and starts coughing up blood. When he hears the others coming he wipes his mouth, leaving a small trail of blood on his chin, but when he stands up and talks to them the blood is gone and his chin is clean.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy jumps up in the bath/shower after shaving the flesh off her legs, we see a lot of blood pooled around the wounds on her back when only seconds ago we saw that the wounds were scabby, but not bleeding at all. Not only that, but somehow the blood has managed to spill upwards, reaching several inches above the wounds it came from. Also, when she begins to jump up, she's facing the shower head directly, but when the camera angle changes, she springs up facing towards the bathroom mirror, which is about a 45 degree angle difference in direction.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy is shaving her legs, in a close-up shot of her face we see a small smear of shaving cream on her forehead that hadn't been there in the previous close-up. A few shots later, it has vanished just as mysteriously as it appeared.

Audio problem: In the scene where Marcy tells Paul that he hurt her back (when they had sex) you can hear a clock ticking in the background. But in the scene a few minutes earlier where she talked him into having sex with her, that takes place in the same bedroom, the sound isn't there.

Character mistake: Paul tells Marcy he's leaving her to go look for Jeff. But soon afterwards, when Paul hears Marcy's dying screams, he runs back to the cabin from exact opposite direction to the one Jeff went when he ran off into the woods. Paul watched Jeff leave, so he would've known what direction he should've been searching in.

Factual error: With a significant portion of Marcy's legs either shaved off her body or in a state of severe rot, it's doubtful she would even be able to stand up properly, let alone run away from a mad dog. And if she'd already lost as much blood as we later see smeared around the bathroom fixtures, she probably wouldn't even be conscious.

Plot hole: Marcy was killed because she was unable to unlock the tool shed door quickly enough to get inside where she'd be safe from the mad dog. So how did the dog get inside the tool shed where Paul finds him only minutes later?

Continuity mistake: The cabin interior doesn't fit with its exterior. In the interior shots you can see that the front door opens in to the main living room, with a window beside it. Next to this window is a doorway to the main bedroom. In other shots, we see that this bedroom also has a window on that same wall. In the exterior shots, there is only one window on this wall, and the cabin's length is nowhere near long enough to fit two spacious rooms.

Continuity mistake: After Paul uses the Listerine as a disinfectant, there's a closeup on the bottle and you can see that the level of the Listerine left inside is just below the word "Listerine" on the label. Every time the bottle is seen after that, the level of liquid is higher.

Revealing mistake: When Marcy cleans Karen's face up after Karen had vomited blood, the paper towels she uses don't absorb any of the blood, and stay pure white.

Revealing mistake: Just before Paul walks into the bathroom to disinfect himself, the bathroom light turns on all by itself.

Continuity mistake: Marcy made it all the way to the toolshed before the dog caught her and started mauling her, but her severed foot is later found only a few yards from the cabin.

Continuity mistake: The way Marcy is holding the towel when she notices the rashes on her back changes in the closeup.

Revealing mistake: Despite her very vigorous thrusting when she makes love with Paul, the bed sheet covering Marcy's ass doesn't get shaken off. Not even a little bit. Also, when they finish, she collapses on to him and he wraps his arm around her back. When he does this you can see that his arm is coming up from near the bottom of her waist. If his arm lines up with her lower waist, then Marcy's crotch must line up with his chest or belly - much higher then it needed to be to have sex.
