Continuity mistake: When Rachel is in the basement looking through the book and sees the newspaper article, if you pause the film when the article appears close up, you can read some of the article. This article has nothing to do with the title and photo caption above it, about the young girl in the bathtub, it appears to be about something political. The filmmakers assumed the article would flash by too fast for the viewer to read. (01:03:35)
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Rachel puts Aidan into the bathtub at Max's house, he is wearing very light white boxer underwear as he is being put into the water. A little while later when Rachel pulls Aidan out of the bathwater, he is suddenly wearing very dark blue/navy colored boxers. Although water would darken the color somewhat, this is far too dramatic a change to be natural. The lighter color couldn't have possibly darkened to that extent. They are two different pairs of boxers. (00:41:55 - 00:48:10)
Continuity mistake: When Rachel is trying to get Emily to speak to her at the police station, near the end of her attempt the shots alternate from closeups to wider views. In the closeups, Emily's hair is very messy and tangled but in wider views it is much neater and straightened. (00:16:35)Hamster
Continuity mistake: When Rachel begins to brake her car after seeing the deer on the road, as the shots keep changing the markings on the road also keep changing. In overhead shots the markings are a single broken yellow line, but in closeups of the wheels, the markings are solid double yellow lines. (00:30:40)Hamster
Continuity mistake: When Rachel pulls up to the old Morgan house she parks her vehicle on the gravel drive, angled into some tall grass. Yet when she leaves the house with the book, the vehicle is now parked halfway on the main road and is no longer angled (but is now much straighter) and is not facing any tall grass.

Continuity mistake: As Rachel is trying to get Aidan to get in the bath at Max's house, she removes the blue towel from him and throws it on the towel-rack. Then during the rest of the bathroom scene, everytime we see the blue towel in shot it is in a different position each time. (00:39:55 - 00:46:35)Hamster
