Revealing mistake: As Sean dives into the water to save Rennie, in all the overhead shots Rennie has dry, curly hair, but in closeups her hair is soaked down straight. In the overhead shots it's obviously a stunt double.

Revealing mistake: When Jason strangles Eva, you can see where the rotten flesh makeup ends on his arm, and that the rest is just a fabric sleeve.

Revealing mistake: When Jason kills the boat captain he comes up way short of making contact with the captain's throat. He's probably a good 2 inches away from it. It definitely doesn't help that this scene is in slow motion either.

Revealing mistake: During the credits, in the shot of the diner, the asian man sitting to the right glances right at the camera.

Revealing mistake: You can see a faint red line on the Captain's neck, before it is cut.

Revealing mistake: When Rennie is pushed overboard the ship stays in the exact same place, as if it is docked. In reality the boat would have sailed on, leaving Rennie behind.

Revealing mistake: When Jason breaks through the glass trying to get to Rennie it is obvious that the glass is just plastic. It is most noticeable when Jason is moving his head, the glass bends.

Revealing mistake: When Jason breaks his hand through the door it's really strange how his hand makes a perfect square on the broken door. Telling that the door was already broken and then repaired loosely for the stunt.
