The People Under the Stairs

Factual error: When Fool calls the police from a coin phone, he puts the coin into the phone, then calls 911. Given that 911 is a free call we should hear the sound of the coin being returned immediately after it was dialed, but we don't. (01:08:45)

Factual error: When the cop (Bobby) asks the woman if it's her van, she says she found it when she got home. In actuality, the police would get suspicious because she didn't report it. Someone comes home and sees someone else's vehicle parked in their driveway and neither her or the man call to report it (at the very least to have it towed)? (00:44:15)

Factual error: When the Man cocks his gun to pursue Leroy and Fool, Leroy refers to the gun as an "automatic." The gun was actually a semi-automatic handgun. (00:33:30)

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.
