Revealing mistake: In the scene where Laura deliberately breaks the boardwalk lamps, she picks up rocks from the beach and then throws them at the lamp bulbs. However, the first rock thrown misses the lamp bulb completely and in fact, passes behind the lamp post. Of course, the bulb breaks anyway because the explosive charge used to break the bulb was detonated remotely.Larry Kohut
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ben knocks on "Sarah's" back door with the apples, the sides of her hair are up and it is evident that there are no visible bruises on her face. However, the next evening at dinner, "Sarah" has her hair down and after moving her hair, a large, fresh bruise is observed by Ben. If this bruise was present, it would have been seen the night before when "Sarah's" hair was 1/2 up.
Laura: That was the night that I died, and someone else was saved. Someone who was afraid of water, but learned to swim. Someone who knew there would be one moment, where he wouldn't be watching. Someone who knew that the darkness of the broken lights would show the way.
Trivia: The beach house is supposedly in Cape Cod, but was actually filmed in Wrightsville Beach, NC on Figure Eight island.
