Revealing mistake: When Lewis gets out of the tub and has a towel around him, you can see he has underwear on.

Continuity mistake: When Louis enters his garage, he leans his rake against the wall. When Church the cat runs out, the angle of the rake is different.

Other mistake: In the beginning of the scene where Gage is killed by the Orinco truck, the truck leaves the plant. The number on the trailer is marked T-80. In the scene, the truck rolls over in the accident. In later scenes where Rachel hitches a ride home with another Orinco truck, the number on the trailer is also marked T-80.

Continuity mistake: When Ellie runs to the tire-swing, she does a cartwheel and looses her hat, but in the next shot, her hat's back on her head.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the table where Jud admits he is to blame for what happened to Gage, Louis is talking to him and the scene cuts to a wide shot. As Louis is talking he is looking at Jud and has his mouth open. Cut, and his head is down and his mouth closed.

Revealing mistake: When the mother gets into an accident after her tire blows, the ghost shows up. It is floating above her car. Notice the seam where the ghost is on the car. When the scene shakes slightly, the ghost shakes too indicating it was a poorly superimposed shot.

Question: Why did Louis kill Church at the end? He only planned on killing Gage if he came back like Timmy Baterman did, and he could have just walked in after distracting Church with the meat.

Chosen answer: Church's behavior had changed after being buried. He was now violent (and working with Gage) and needed to be put down before killing anyone.
