Factual error: It's the end of the school year, which would be early-mid June. Corn is not that high that soon in the summer.

Continuity mistake: In the crop scene, when Lewis, Fuller and Venna turn when they hear the truck coming, in one shot the truck is pulling out to take over the car, about 5 seconds later he's taking over the car again. (01:07:00)


Factual error: When Rusty Nail is chasing them down the dirt road, and they come to a nearly 90 degree turn, there is NO way that a semi could take that turn at the same speed as the car and not flip over.

Suggested correction: The turn wasn't a 90 degree angle, it was more of a curve than a turn.

Factual error: In the scene where Lewis dials the police at the gas station, he says "Rawlins County Sheriff's Department please." There is no such county in Wyoming (where this particular scene is) named Rawlins County. He should have said Carbon County. Also, Table Rock is in Sweetwater County, and there are no police services there. (00:36:50)

Suggested correction: Many films and TV shows make up their own places.

Except in this film they're using real town names and they show a real map.

Factual error: When Fuller, Lewis and Venna are at the town with a bar in Nebraska, there are mountains in the distant background. Nebraska doesn't have mountains of that height. Most of the film was shot in Nevada.

Rusty Nail: I was just playing.

Trivia: Eric Stoltz was nearly cast for the role of "Rusty Nail", but director John Dahl felt Stoltz didn't sound scary and intense enough so the part was given to Dahl's first choice, Ted Levine.
