Corrected entry: If the team have only 9 days to complete the job then why are they always taking breaks?

Correction: This isn't a plot hole, the breaks are an intentional aspect of the movie. The men are stressed, more focused on other things (Mike) or don't really care about the job and disappear as soon as there's another option. (Phil).

Corrected entry: In the scene where Hank discovers the "treasure" in the crematorium, he finds several objects wrapped in small bags or with paper labels on them. Considering all the objects are items of jewellery or other personal effects from people who've been cremated, these tags and bags should have been burnt to ash, much like the ash that spills out as he searches.

Correction: This is not a mistake, as mentioned in the director's commentary, they say its not a crematorium where the items are hidden. It is in fact a heating vent that somebody who worked in the morgue had used to hide these items away in, therefore they would not have burned at all.

Factual error: When Mike first starts listening to the session tapes, the camera does a slow pan down the label on the box. Quite clearly, we can see that the patient's diagnosis is listed as "D.I.D.", along with a few names. Since the hospital closed in the mid 80's, it is not possible for her to have that diagnosis. Before the early 1990's, D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder) was known as M.P.D. (Multiple Personality Disorder). In later scenes it is correctly listed in the woman's files as Multiple Personality.

Trivia: The film was shot primarily at the Danvers State Asylum, an abandoned hospital. The script was written around the shooting location based on what rooms and corridors were safe to shoot in. Little to no set-dressing had to be done for the film, as it was suitably dilapidated and filled with abandoned medical equipment, which helped add to the film's atmosphere.
