The People Under the Stairs

Plot hole: The Man goes completely trigger happy shooting all the walls all around his house, trying to kill Fool, Leroy, and Roach at different points. The police come in and don't notice anything wrong. What about the bullet holes all over the place? (00:41:35)

Revealing mistake: When the man pushes Leroy's body down the basement stairs, as his body is sliding down, when it's almost to the bottom, you can plainly see Leroy lift his head up as he's sliding, although he's dead.

Continuity mistake: In one scene where Fool goes back into the house to get Alice, he takes a fire-poker from the fire place. As he walks through the house, you can see the poker is intact. After he strikes "Daddy" you see the poker break. In the next shot, the poker is back, unbroken. (01:11:45)

Revealing mistake: When the Woman is trying to attack Alice with the huge butchers knife, in one shot you can see it bend and wobble a little bit, revealing that it was fake and rubber. (01:28:10)

Continuity mistake: In the very beginning, Fool falls down the basement stairs when the man pulls the lever to make the stairs a ramp. He is wearing a purple and black striped shirt. Later, near the end, Fool goes back into the basement on the same stairs. This time, he is wearing a green shirt. When the man chases him and pulls the lever again, we see the same footage of Fool rolling down the stairs/ramp from earlier (black & purple shirt). When Fool gets back on his feet, his shirt is green again. (01:24:15)

Revealing mistake: When Fool is in the bathroom, the father pokes his head through the door (after firing a rifle at it), and turns to Fool who smashes the toilet tank lid on his head. The blood mark is on the father's right temple, but he was clearly hit in the middle. (00:44:40)

Continuity mistake: When Leroy breaks into the back door of the house, the door has nothing on it, yet in the next shot from inside the house as they enter, the glass panels on the door are covered in ivy. (00:16:55)
