Correction: Actually, it's Burt who says that, not a crew member.

Corrected entry: After Burt has left to go to the Town Hall, Vicky asks Sarah her name. Then later, Burt comes back to the house. Although Vicky has been abducted, Burt somehow knows the little girl's name is Sarah.

Correction: No, she actually asks Sarah her name right after she and Burt find her in the room. Burt even addresses Sarah by her name when asking if she's alone there.

Corrected entry: When Burt throws the flaming alcohol bottle at the end of the movie, when it hits the ground, the dirt sets alight and the fire spreads. You can clearly see that flammable liquid has been poured all over the dirt, in order to make the fire burn. (01:21:45)

Correction: The flammble liquid was the 'gasohol' that he fed through the sprinkler system, with the intent of setting the cornfield on fire.


Continuity mistake: After the owner of Hansens café is attacked, the children put his hand against a blender, and a blood splatter occurs, spraying across onto Job's face. Between shots the pattern of the blood on Job's face changes between shots. (00:04:00)
