Continuity mistake: When Epps first walks into Katie's cabin, there is a straw hat underneath a suitcase on top of the clothes rack. Yet when Epps gets up again after looking at the dress, the hat is now on top of the suitcase without her having moved it.

Factual error: During the scenes where Santos is working on the main engines, he is actually working on a generator. A tug of that size would have a set of much larger engines with reduction gears (transmission), or be hooked up to large electical power plant to provide propulsion.

Revealing mistake: When Epps is holding the detonator and it is knocked out of her hand, watch as it lands - when it hits the ground the trigger is pressed in yet there is no explosion.

Deliberate mistake: When the passengers are cut by the wire while dancing, some of the clothing on the torsos defies gravity. A man's coat tails and pants fall but a woman's dress stays put when nothing would have held it from falling from her lower half in the same way.

Visible crew/equipment: When the tug leaves the harbour in search of the (ghost) ship you can see the waves of the ship from which the scene is being filmed.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie where the line cuts the dancers in half, blood is visible on the dress of one of the dancers before the line cuts her. This is best viewed in slow motion on the DVD.

Continuity mistake: When the demon meets the crew in a bar and asks them to find the lost ship he saw from the air, notice the beer bottles on the table; they keep changing from full to half full to full again, mainly the foam at the top.

Continuity mistake: In the scene abord the Arctic Warrior, the engineer is in the engine room rebuilding the engine, and he gets oil squirted on his right cheek. A moment later, the oil has moved to his left lapel and shoulder.

Visible crew/equipment: Julianna enters a large hall while exploring the ship by pushing two big glass doors open. Looking at Julianna coming in, you can see a movie-lightbar reflecting in the glass on the right.

Continuity mistake: When Santos is down fixing the machinery on the boat he is talking with himself, and when he says "What these people talking crazy for?" he is holding a some sort of equipment in his left hand. When it cuts he is suddenly holding it in his right hand.

Plot hole: After the small boat blows up, all the characters are off the big ship. They magically appear back on top of the main ship, but had absolutely no way of getting up there.

Revealing mistake: When Munder catches fire and falls over on deck, the fireproof vest is very visible on his right arm.

Revealing mistake: How is it that in the middle of a storm on the Baltic Sea the Arctic Warrior experiences no waves or rough sea? When the crew finds the ship, the water is almost as calm as a lake.

Continuity mistake: When Munder goes through the floor, we get a shot from beneath seeing him dangling down the hole from his waist. But when it cuts, we see Epps reaching for Munder down the hole. The upper half of his body should be sticking up from the hole.

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.

Factual error: In the passenger list there is a note after Katie's name, "viaggiando solo", travelling alone. The correct Italian expression would be "viaggianda sola", in the feminine and not the masculine.

Mistakes

At the beginning and especially at the end, Julianna Margulies spends extensive time in the ocean, wearing nothing but cargo pants and a T-shirt. Considering the movie takes place just off the Bering Strait, wouldn't she have quickly frozen to death?

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.
