Plot hole: When Elizabeth is interviewing Victoria for the first time, she mentions that Victoria had sent her an application, therefore her name had to have been on it. However, Maggie Evans didn't change her name to Victoria Winters until she was on the train en route to Collinwood for the interview, therefore Elizabeth would have been expecting Maggie Evans, not Victoria Winters.Jonabon
Factual error: When Barnabus is talking to Carolyn (just before he goes out in the woods and kills the hippies) he says "I am a picker. I am a grinner. I am a lover. And I am a sinner. I play my music in the sun." These are lines from the song "The Joker" which was recorded in August of 1973 and released in October 1973. The song wasn't released for a full year after the events in the movie, which takes place in October, 1972. (00:56:50 - 00:57:12)
Factual error: The train sequences that are supposed to be in 1972 show Amtrak cars that were not built until the 1980s, and the rear (pusher) locomotive was not built until after 2000, as was the modified locomotive/control car in the front. The Amtrak graphics are from this century also. They went to the trouble to create 1972 Maine license plates for the vintage autos, and spent millions on effects, but they can't contact a historical society for the use of a correct coach for a day and search for stock footage of a train that's not 40 years too modern?
Continuity mistake: When Barnabas stops the disco ball from landing on David, he is set on fire. Willie then chucks a pail of water on him to stop him burning. The next shot shows the bucket Willie holds and there is no trace of water, nor is the bucket wet, even though he'd just used water from the pail to throw at Barnabas. (01:21:00)Casual Person
Factual error: Alice Cooper sings the song "No more Mr Nice guy." This song wasn't released at that time.
