The People Under the Stairs
The People Under the Stairs mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the Man and Woman have lost Alice, they look in the kitchen to find her, and the Woman starts opening up some cabinets and in the process she leaves some of the doors open. Then in the next shot, the cabinet doors that are open have now changed, and some doors that were open in the previous shot are now closed.

Plot hole: The Man goes completely trigger happy shooting all the walls all around his house, trying to kill Fool, Leroy, and Roach at different points. The police come in and don't notice anything wrong. What about the bullet holes all over the place?

Continuity mistake: When the Man tells Prince to shut the fuck up, the amount of blood on his chin changes between shots.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When the Woman is trying to attack Alice with the huge butchers knife, in one shot you can see it bend and wobble a little bit, revealing that it was fake and rubber.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene when Ruby is laying the tarot cards down for Fool, the cards that she lays down changes position in the following shots, most noticeably the Devil card.

Continuity mistake: When Roach writes 'Alice' in the white wall, in the first shot he writes it neatly. In the next shot the writing is very messy, then neat again in the next shot.

Continuity mistake: In one scene where Fool goes back into the house to get Alice, he takes a fire-poker from the fire place. As he walks through the house, you can see the poker is intact. After he strikes "Daddy" you see the poker break. In the next shot, the poker is back, unbroken.

Continuity mistake: When Fool walks down the stairs, he picks up Spencer's lighter and pad, then gets scared and runs back upstairs. As he runs, between shots the items he holds swaps hands.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Fool hides behind the cat-flap style vent, at the end of the hallway, The Man comes down with his gun. The items behind the vent change position (eg. the cloths, bones, etc.)

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When the man pushes Leroy's body down the basement stairs, as his body is sliding down, when it's almost to the bottom, you can plainly see Leroy lift his head up as he's sliding, although he's dead.

Continuity mistake: When Fool turns the TV around to look at it, in the cellar, he is wearing a plaster on his thumb. In the next shot when he runs away up the stairs, it has gone, and never returns.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When the Woman is attacked by the People from under the Stairs, it quite clear that it is in actual fact a stunt double.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Fool goes over and starts throwing rocks into the pond, the brown paper bag beside his foot keeps moving between shots.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When Fool is in the bathroom, the father pokes his head through the door (after firing a rifle at it), and turns to Fool who smashes the toilet tank lid on his head. The blood mark is on the father's right temple, but he was clearly hit in the middle.

Factual error: When the cop (Bobby) asks the woman if it's her van, she says she found it when she got home. In actuality, the police would get suspicious because she didn't report it. Someone comes home and sees someone else's vehicle parked in their driveway and neither her or the man call to report it (at the very least to have it towed)?

Factual error: When Fool calls the police from a coin phone, he puts the coin into the phone, then calls 911. Given that 911 is a free call we should hear the sound of the coin being returned immediately after it was dialed, but we don't.

Continuity mistake: When Fool falls downstairs, the hatch in the door is open (and sunlight streams through it) but when Roach chases after him and Fool runs back up again, the hatch is now closed.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Alice is pushed into the blood to mop it up, the bucket of water sits beside the dining room rug. In the next shot it is suddenly in the middle of the blood with Alice.

Continuity mistake: The amount of blood on the side of the Man's face changes alot through the movie, especially in the cellar scenes.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: The items on the corner of the couch (cushion, throw, etc.) keep changing position as Prince first goes to attack Leroy.
