Revealing mistake: When the bats escape from the fireplace, it's obvious they are just black pieces of material.

Revealing mistake: As the dead guy falls out the freezer, he is seen blinking.

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: When Mikey is on the balcony he turns towards Bran to hug him, and then Bran carries Mikey all the way to back of the balcony. During that whole time there are leaves falling from the sky. All the trees are outside of their picket fence and lower than their balcony roof. So they must have had crew on the roof throwing leaves down for the effect. (00:21:10 - 00:21:40)

Brand: Like your brain right, lame-o? Say good-bye to your little pals.
