Continuity mistake: When Graham goes into Ray's kitchen you see the vegetables scattered and the knife further on the other side of them. When Graham leans up for the knife, however, it is on the other side of the now grouped vegetables. (00:56:40 - 00:58:10)
Continuity mistake: When the deputy sheriff comes out of the house, her ink pen is sticking through the hole in her pocket flap but not in the pocket itself. After she turns around at the car, her ink pen is inside her pocket and not "flapping" loose as it was just a split second before. (00:21:15)
Continuity mistake: When Merrill delivers the final blow to the alien, you see it fall into a table and knock over a single glass of water from the alien's perspective. In the next shot, the top of the table is shown with three tipped glasses. (01:37:40)
Trivia: When the alien's hand comes out of the coal grate for Morgan, if you look closely you will see that the hand was already through the grate and the alien was using its colour changing abilities to hide. So if you look very closely you will that that the hand comes UP from the grate and not through it, and if you look VERY carefully you can see the outline of the hand even before Morgen says "What?"
Trivia: Ray Reddy (the man who accidentally killed Graham's wife), is the writer/director/producer of the film, M. Night Shyamalan.
Trivia: Some of the artwork done by Bo in the film was actually done by Shyamalan's daughter, Salek.
Graham Hess: Everybody in this family needs to just calm down and eat some fruit or something.
Bo: There's a monster outside my room, can I have a glass of water?
Graham Hess: Swing away Merrill. Merrill... swing away.
Question: First, let me say that the aliens being affected by only the "contaminants" in the tap water seems to be wrong. Two reason: 1)The Indian vet mentions that they don't like water, and 2) the aliens were avoiding areas with large bodies of water nearby. My question is this: wouldn't humans, who are over half water, be toxic to the aliens? Even if they processed the humans with different equipment and took precautions to avoid blood or body fluids, wouldn't carrying off a sweaty person burn the aliens? Seems like a dangerous harvest.
Question: Do the individual aliens have cloaking abilities? It seemed at that the dogs were reacting to something that the people could not see. Were they smelling cloaked aliens? Were they going crazy to protect their human owners and that was misinterpreted as an attack on the people? I thought they are walking around at least invisible at times to do their work without detection. I may be wrong on that.
