Factual error: A girl is playing with a Tamagotchi virtual pet in the scene set in 1994, but the toy was not released in Japan until 1996 (it wasn't officially available in the USA until May 1997).
Factual error: In the beginning of the movie when they are in the hotel room they are drinking Killian's beer. However, the label on the Killian's bottle was a new style label. When the movie was supposedly shot the Killlian's would have had the old style label.
Factual error: Notice at the beginning of the movie when they are loading their stuff, you see a 1997 or above Ford F-150 truck sitting at the house across the street. The movie takes place in 1994.
Trivia: There are 133 F-words in this movie.
Trivia: The first time they filmed the part with Josh's teeth and flannel in the sticks, the directors had left it outside the tent, not telling Heather. When she got up in the morning, she picked up the bundle of sticks and threw them off to the side without looking at it. They had to contact her and re-shoot it.
Heather Donahue: I just want to apologize to Josh's mom, and Mike's mom, and my mom. I am so sorry! Because it was my fault. I was the one who brought them here. I was the one that said "keep going south." I was the one who said that we were not lost. It was my fault, because it was my project. I am so scared! I don't know what's out there. We are going to die out here! I am so scared!
Michael Williams: I could help you, but I'd rather stand here and record.
Heather Donahue: I tell you guys, two more hours max.
Question: At the end when the girl 'dies' you can see someone in the corner. Who is it?
