Cabin Fever

Revealing mistake: When Bert is running in the woods, away from the local guys, he rubs blood on a tree to make them believe he ran a certain way. Look close, the tree already has red tint on it probably from previous takes that didn't wash off.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy and Paul are hauling Karen into the jeep, Karen spits blood all over the windscreen. Then when we see the shot of Karen falling to the ground and shots after, the windscreen is pretty clean.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Paul and Marcy are having sex, you can see there is nothing on Paul's left wrist. The following shot of them Paul is moving his hands up her back and you can see he now has a watch on his left wrist.

Lummie

Continuity mistake: When the rednecks are chasing the Blazer the Ford truck they're driving has round headlights. When the kid hits the deer and gets out the truck has square headlights and a different grill.

EMTurbo

Revealing mistake: When Jeff walks out the cabin and is shot by police, you can tell he's wearing a bullet-proof vest or padding.

Continuity mistake: When Deputy Winston is talking to Paul, he takes his tinted glasses off, in his left hand. Then in the next shot he has them in his right hand, although he never swapped hands.

Continuity mistake: When Bert first realises he has the fever, he crouches beside the car and starts coughing up blood. When he hears the others coming he wipes his mouth, leaving a small trail of blood on his chin, but when he stands up and talks to them the blood is gone and his chin is clean.

Audio problem: In the scene where Marcy tells Paul that he hurt her back (when they had sex) you can hear a clock ticking in the background. But in the scene a few minutes earlier where she talked him into having sex with her, that takes place in the same bedroom, the sound isn't there.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy jumps up in the bath/shower after shaving the flesh off her legs, we see a lot of blood pooled around the wounds on her back when only seconds ago we saw that the wounds were scabby, but not bleeding at all. Not only that, but somehow the blood has managed to spill upwards, reaching several inches above the wounds it came from. Also, when she begins to jump up, she's facing the shower head directly, but when the camera angle changes, she springs up facing towards the bathroom mirror, which is about a 45 degree angle difference in direction.

Plot hole: Marcy was killed because she was unable to unlock the tool shed door quickly enough to get inside where she'd be safe from the mad dog. So how did the dog get inside the tool shed where Paul finds him only minutes later?

Continuity mistake: Marcy made it all the way to the toolshed before the dog caught her and started mauling her, but her severed foot is later found only a few yards from the cabin.

Factual error: A doctor is seen using a syringe to inoculate the individual with the disease. It is clear that the containment gloves and sleeves he is using are not proper as you can see his skin between the gloves and the sleeve. If this were a real containment unit his entire skin would be covered.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy is shaving her legs, in a close-up shot of her face we see a small smear of shaving cream on her forehead that hadn't been there in the previous close-up. A few shots later, it has vanished just as mysteriously as it appeared.

Character mistake: Paul tells Marcy he's leaving her to go look for Jeff. But soon afterwards, when Paul hears Marcy's dying screams, he runs back to the cabin from exact opposite direction to the one Jeff went when he ran off into the woods. Paul watched Jeff leave, so he would've known what direction he should've been searching in.

Factual error: With a significant portion of Marcy's legs either shaved off her body or in a state of severe rot, it's doubtful she would even be able to stand up properly, let alone run away from a mad dog. And if she'd already lost as much blood as we later see smeared around the bathroom fixtures, she probably wouldn't even be conscious.

Continuity mistake: After Paul uses the Listerine as a disinfectant, there's a closeup on the bottle and you can see that the level of the Listerine left inside is just below the word "Listerine" on the label. Every time the bottle is seen after that, the level of liquid is higher.

Revealing mistake: When Marcy cleans Karen's face up after Karen had vomited blood, the paper towels she uses don't absorb any of the blood, and stay pure white.

Revealing mistake: Just before Paul walks into the bathroom to disinfect himself, the bathroom light turns on all by itself.

Continuity mistake: The way Marcy is holding the towel when she notices the rashes on her back changes in the closeup.

Revealing mistake: Despite her very vigorous thrusting when she makes love with Paul, the bed sheet covering Marcy's ass doesn't get shaken off. Not even a little bit. Also, when they finish, she collapses on to him and he wraps his arm around her back. When he does this you can see that his arm is coming up from near the bottom of her waist. If his arm lines up with her lower waist, then Marcy's crotch must line up with his chest or belly - much higher then it needed to be to have sex.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy and Paul are talking about their hopeless situation "being like being on a plane that's going down" you can see a small wall hanging to the left of the glass panel door in the background. Also, the shadows from the hanging and door frame cast left, away from the door. Later, when they have sex in the same bedroom, the wall hanging is on the right side of the door and now its shadow casts towards the door. It's definitely not the opposite wall of the room, as this is shown earlier and has a wood-plank door, a much larger painting mounted on it and unlike the wall shown in these scenes, it isn't wallpapered.

Deliberate mistake: The sex scene between Paul and Marcy is broken up with a shot of Karen dying alone in the toolshed. The shot is well-lit, but we saw Marcy closing the door when she put Karen back in the shed, leaving the shed virtually pitch dark. So where is the light coming from?

Continuity mistake: When Paul and Marcy start having sex, Marcy's hair is running down her back. Paul asks Marcy about whether they should use a condom. Cut to a close-up of her face for her reply and her hair is suddenly hanging over the far side of her face. Cut back to the original angle and her hair is running down her back again.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy first runs out of the cabin, just before she dies, her chest is clean. But in the few seconds it takes her to run to the nearby toolshed, somehow her chest gets covered in splotches of blood.

Revealing mistake: When Marcy and Jeff are having sex, at one point Marcy rolls over on top of Jeff. When she does this, there's a couple of instances where you can see a red cord from the bikini bottom she's wearing to preserve her modesty dangling down in the background.

Revealing mistake: As Marcy is running away from the mad dog, there are a few instances when we can see the sleeve of a white top inside her bathrobe. She was supposed to have just run out of the shower in a panic, so throwing on a top and then a bathrobe doesn't seem like something she really would've done.

Continuity mistake: When Paul squeezes Marcy's back during sex, his fingers are pointed more inwards towards her spine then upwards towards her shoulders. The hand-shaped rashes Marcy notices in the bathroom immediately afterwards reflect this position, also. But as the rashes deteriorate, the finger marks shift into positions that are completely different to the way Paul was holding her.

Revealing mistake: There's no chimney on the roof, but the fireplace works.

Visible crew/equipment: Boom mic visible when Marcy is looking at her back in the mirror.

Continuity mistake: Right at the end, when Paul checks on Karen (obvious dummy), she is lying on her right side while the dog is attacking her. After Paul gets chased out by the dog and kills it, he returns, and Karen is now on her left side. She didn't have the strength to move when the dog was biting her, so how could she turn over?

Continuity mistake: When Bert and Jeff find the crazy woman who is gutting the pig, when she first starts yelling at them, there is blood all down the side of her protective goggles, but then suddenly it all disappears and her goggles are completely clean.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Bert is out shooting squirrels, he has a bottle of beer in a brown glass. But when he starts the fireplace up, the bottle is green. Also in certain shots as he drinks from it, it's clear the bottle is empty.

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the movie when the teens are heading off to the woods in the Jeep, in one of the backseat shots, you can clearly see a cameraman in the rearview mirror

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Paul begins telling the story of the mass murder in his town's bowling alley he says the alley was called "Lenny Mead's Brighton Bowl". But when we see the flashbacks of the massacre, the business name embroidered on the employees' shirts is "Black Sky Bowling"

Continuity mistake: The cabin interior doesn't fit with its exterior. In the interior shots you can see that the front door opens in to the main living room, with a window beside it. Next to this window is a doorway to the main bedroom. In other shots, we see that this bedroom also has a window on that same wall. In the exterior shots, there is only one window on this wall, and the cabin's length is nowhere near long enough to fit two spacious rooms.

Continuity mistake: When Karen and Paul are on the raft, they are laying down talking. In a specific overhead shot Karen's arm are by her sides, but in the next shot they are folded over her body.

Continuity mistake: When Bert returns from shooting, he talks to Jeff and Marcy, when returning his BB gun hangs over his right shoulder. Shot changes and his gun hangs over his left shoulder. When it cuts to the last back closeup of him and as he walks away to the cabin, you can see the gun has jumped to being over his right shoulder between the shots.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When the kids are in the shop near the beginning of the film, at the shopkeepers desk is a cardboard box, and next to it are some jars and tins. Between a couple of shots the jars/tins rotate and move position on the desk, and also two or three jars/tins appear then disappear.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: In the cave scene, when Paul finds Grim's body, during the "worm in the ear" shot, Grim's neck is moving quite visibly with his pulse.

Continuity mistake: When Marcy, Bert, Jeff and Paul are in the cabin talking about the fact that maybe they should prepare their own meals, during the conversation before the scrap between Jeff and Bert, watch Marcy who's sitting on the couch. Between shots she goes from having her hands up in the air, to folded or down in her lap.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When the blonde goes to kiss her boyfriend as they are floating on a platform in the lake, she rolls herself off the platform and completely submerges herself underwater. When she comes up for air, it cuts back to her boyfriend looking at her, then back to the blonde who is head above water and her hair is completely dry.

Revealing mistake: When the police are throwing the bodies on the fire near the end of the film, the body that gets thrown on top is obviously a doll. The body on the bottom looks like it possibly could be, but the one on top is definitely one.
