Continuity mistake: When Jack ask Sean if he can talk to him alone for a minute, you see Jack lift his hand up pointing back with his thumb. Then he lowers his hand again. When it cuts you see Jack still holding his hand up. You also see Epps reaching in her pocket with her right hand, and when it cuts she is suddenly holding a cracker. (00:07:20)Mortug
Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when the crew is dividing their money, the number of beer bottles on the table increases between the shots. At first, there are a few half full bottles. Suddenly, there are a few full bottles and a few empty bottles, with no time to have drunk them. (00:06:55)Mortug
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Epps is looking at the swimming pool, when she falls backwards from seeing Katie at the top of the stairs, there is a safety ring at the bottom of the pool. Yet later on in the film when Katie is showing Epps what happened to the people in the ship and how people were shot in front of the pool, there is no ring. (00:32:25)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the people are dancing and later killed by the line you can see the glass is still standing after it was cut. (00:04:25)
Trivia: The studio and producer Joel Silver reportedly called for major re-writes of the script shortly before shooting began. Many of the actors had signed up based on the original script, titled "Chimera", which contained far less violence and supernatural elements, and instead was a psychological drama about what happens to a salvage crew when they are stranded in the middle of the ocean. Much of the cast wasn't informed that the script had been almost completely altered into a more generic supernatural-horror/slasher film until just before they showed up to begin filming, leaving many of them disheartened and disgruntled.
