Cabin Fever

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. (01:10:45 - 01:37:50)

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. (01:03:00 - 01:10:25)

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. (01:00:50)

Revealing mistake: Just before Paul walks into the bathroom to disinfect himself, the bathroom light turns on all by itself. (01:02:50)

Continuity mistake: The way Marcy is holding the towel when she notices the rashes on her back changes in the closeup. (01:03:10)

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. (01:02:40)

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. (01:01:35 - 01:02:30)

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? (01:02:35)

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. (01:02:30)

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. (01:10:45)

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. (00:14:05)

thestablefanatic

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. (01:10:55)

thestablefanatic

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. (01:02:35 - 01:10:30)

thestablefanatic

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

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 (00:04:00)

Continuity mistake: When Marcy leaves Karen's side to confront Jeff, in the first shot Karen's blanket is tucked under her legs. But in the next shot, her blanket is lying loose upon her mattress. Also, leaves that are bunched up at the side of the mattress disappear between shots. (01:00:50)

thestablefanatic

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. (00:31:20)

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. (00:14:50)
