Continuity mistake: When Private Jessup is thrown out, he walks up to the door and places his bloody hand on the glass door. When the monsters pulls him away, the position of the blood stain on the glass doesn't match where he had his hand in the previous shot. (01:34:55)

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film when the five of them are in the car, they stop to watch a giant monster walk past, shaking the car. When we see the monster again it is walking away from them, but the telephone cables are still erect - it is clear that these would have been knocked down by the monster. (01:48:20 - 01:48:55)

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, the wind has blown a tree down toward the house, which is away from the lake. In a following scene the tree has blown down on the boat house, which is toward the lake. (00:01:20)

Continuity mistake: The hand print that is left on the door changes between shots. In one the blood is fairly light and in the next its a lot darker. (01:35:00)

Factual error: There is a scene near the beginning of the movie when the mist has just begun. A firetruck roars by, and has Caddo Parish Fire Dept. on the side. This movie is set in Maine. Louisiana is the only state with parishes. All others, including Maine, have counties. (00:10:50)

Ollie: We have to tell them. The people in the market. We have to stop them from going outside.
David Drayton: They won't believe us.
Ollie: They have to.
David Drayton: I'm not sure I believe it, and I was here. What we saw was impossible. You know that, don't you? What do we say? How do we... convince them? Ollie, what the hell were those tentacles even attached to?

Trivia: At the very beginning, David sits in front of his newest drawing, showing a man with two guns, a rose right of him and a tower far behind on the left side. This drawing shows Roland, a character out of "The Dark Tower", a well-known series of books from Stephen King. This drawing is shown again, some time later after the storm, and David tells that this drawing was meant to become a film poster. (00:00:30)
