Continuity mistake: As Mary begins to reverse her car out of the garage (filmed from the front of the car) you can see that there is nothing hanging up in the back of the car, but when the car gets outside the garage (filmed from the side) there is now a coat hanging up in the back of the car.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, when the two cars are along side each other at the traffic lights: Watch the right hand of the man wearing the white hat as he leans out of the car window - a cigarette magically appears in his hand in between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Mary takes her car to the garage the mechanic raises the car up on the ramp to the height of six feet approximately, with Mary still sitting inside the car. She then has one of her nightmares, when she wakes up in a state of panic a few minutes later, the ramp is now level with the floor and she is able to drive the car straight out of the garage.

Continuity mistake: When Mary leaves the boarding house, she puts her luggage and jacket on the back seat of the car, but moments later when the car does a right turn, the jacket is hanging up in the back of the car, but when she drives the car into the garage, the coat is no longer hanging up in the back of the car.

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Dr Samuels is having a consultation in his office with Mary, at the moment when he says "it isn't that simple" watch the position of Mary's right arm, it is on the desk. After she replies "what do you mean?" her right arm is resting on the chair.

Continuity mistake: During the finale where Mary is being chased out of the pavilion and onto the beach by the ghoulish figures, she is wearing shoes (white) but when she is out on the sand and falls down she is barefoot. Presumably it was difficult for the actress who plays Mary (Candace Hilligoss) to run on the sand wearing high heels, so therefore it was easier to run on the sand barefoot.

Continuity mistake: Right at the end of the movie is a scene where a car with dead people in is hauled out of a river. As the camera pans in on the dead people, whose eyes are open, one of them blinks.
