Continuity mistake: When Chris talks to the cop and then the cop gets shot with an arrow, Chris runs into the truck and the man shoots another arrow. So altogether he shoots two times. The first one is in the cop's eye, so how come when he shoots the second through the truck window, there are now two arrows there, not one. He only fired two arrows and we see three. (01:04:20)


Plot hole: The fearless trio is in the watch tower when the hillbillies set fire to it. Realizing their fate if they stay, the three then jump out the window and onto nearby tree branches in order to escape the blaze. After escaping the towering inferno, it seems that the fire dies immediately. These three don't go far after jumping and are in the trees for some time. Shouldn't there be a great glow and lots of noise and smoke from the fire as the watch tower burns down? (00:53:45 - 00:56:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Carly, Scott, Chris and Jessie are approaching the house in the woods, the shot from the back shows Jessie crossing her arms and leaving them there, and Scott behind Carly, but a shot from the front shows Jessie's arms down by her side, and Scott holding Carly. (00:23:00)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene of the film when we see the male climber almost reaching the top of the cliff. If you look on the side of the cliff, there is some kind of metal device/climbing equipment. This object moves between shots from being about two feet away to the right from the male climbers hand, to a few inches when the climber reaches for his last grip on the rockface. (00:01:05)

Question: What is the significance of that guy at the gas station, as he closes the door on the cannibals' truck, is he one of the inbred family or what?

Answer: The chosen answer is incorrect. In part 2, the old man turns out to be one of them. He tells Dale, you killed my boy! The 3 cannibals are his sons.


Answer: He is frightened of them, which is why he hides when they go by. He allows unwary travelers to encounter the crazies as a means of protecting himself. So, they leave him alone in return. But, apparently, it doesn't do much to dissuade his fear.

Answer: Both answers are correct. In the first movie, it isn't clear what the old man's relationship to them is, but is implied they leave him alone in exchange for leading people to them. In the second movie, its established that he is their father. However, if you're going by the first movie alone, he does appear to be afraid of them, which is why he shuts the garage door when he sees their truck approaching.

Answer: This is hard to understand. In the first movie he is scared of them. In the second movie and its sequels and prequels he is helping them and caring for them.
