Audio problem: Carly leaves the voice mail message for Paige and the whole scene with the truck gets on the voice mail. When Blake checks his phone after the music stops, the message isn't the same as earlier.

Continuity mistake: Elisha Cuthbert is a foot shorter than Jared Padalecki, so they stacked blocks under her shoes to make her appear taller (as seen in one of the extras). However, in full body shots there is nothing under her feet and she's much shorter than those shots when you can't see her feet.

Mortug

Continuity mistake: Nick's shirt he gave to Carly is way too big on her when she first puts it on. In the next scene it fits like it's her own shirt.

Deliberate mistake: Due to the thin tissue and blood supply to the lips, after Carly ripped the superglue from her lips she should have bled profusely, requiring steady pressure for a minimum of five minutes. However, that would have obviously slowed the tension of the movie too much.

Continuity mistake: When Carly is taken into the basement under the gas station, her kidnapper turns the radio on when they enter the room and he locks the door when he leaves, leaving the radio on. When Nick runs inside the gas station, the door is unlocked and the radio is off.

Factual error: According to netstate.com the average monthly high in the state of Louisiana is 93.3 degrees F (34.05 degrees C) with summer months often exceeding 100 degrees F (37.77 degrees C), making it impossible for a functional multi-story wax structure to remain functional for any extended period of time, regardless of wax content.

Continuity mistake: When Carly locks herself in the truck, the owner throws to the ground the box holding the fan belt and a few other things, right beside the driver's side of the truck. In the next exterior shot, there is nothing on the ground.

Continuity mistake: When Carly is in the wax bedroom near the end of the film, she is fending off Vincent with a bat. She lays the bat on the wax bed while talking, and it leaves an imprint in the wax. When she runs on the bed to the other side, the imprint is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Carly, Nick and Bo are walking up against Bo's house, Carly's hands change from being crossed behind her back to hanging down between the shots.

Mortug

Continuity mistake: When the weird man gives Carly and Wade a ride, he steps out of the car to let them out. However, he does this twice in different shots.

Continuity mistake: After Vincent has stabbed Blake in the neck at the campsite, a terrified Paige runs for her life and tries to hide in a large dark building (the abandoned sugar mill). Whilst she is running through dark hallways, she passes through patches of moonlight and we see that her eyes are dry, and her face doesn't exactly show an expression of terror (Hilton's poor acting perhaps?). However, seconds later, she crouches down to hide and the lights are turned on, and we see that she is crying and tears are streamed across her face, yet she was not sobbing nor crying before she crouched down, merely screaming and panting. Immediately afterwards, when she is searching through a box of discarded cellphones, her face is once again dry and her eyes not red, and it remains dry throughout the rest of the scene, despite her not having wiped her face at all (including the scene of her face right before Vincent impales her: her mascara is completely untouched).

Continuity mistake: When Carly has fallen into the road kill pit, the amount of dirt on her hands keeps changing instantly.

Continuity mistake: Right at the start, when the woman says, "Why can't you be more like your brother?" the cereal the kid has changes position/amount between shots.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: As we see Vincent falling through the wax floor, the depth that he has sunk in changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Carly wipes the mirror and sees the person in the window, the area of wiped glass on the mirror alternates between two different versions.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: After having shot Bo with a stolen crossbow, Carly and Nick search the Sinclair house for help. When Carly comes across a drawer filled with newspaper clippings and childhood photographs of the Sinclair brothers, Bo and Vincent are seen on these photos as having very fair, almost light brown hair, and yet in the film, the adult brothers both have very dark black hair. It is possible that they could have dyed it in the past, but considering one is a deranged psychopathic killer and the other his simple-minded disfigured sidekick, this seems very unlikely (admittedly, hair color can grow darker over the years, but not the the extent of changing color completely, and the photos of Bo and Vincent show them around 5 or 6 years old, not toddlers).
