What Lies Beneath

Revealing mistake: In an early shot shown from the neighbor's house, it is established that the Spencers' house is quite a ways uphill.

The neighbors' house looks like it's a lot closer and more level with the Spencers' home.

Factual error: When Claire pulls herself out of the bathtub, she falls right over the center of the tub. The bloody fingerprints would have been wiped away or completely smeared by her nightgown and bathrobe during the fall.
