The Vanishing

Continuity mistake: When Rita is being held by Barney in the cabin, she wipes the mud from her face with a white towel. In subsequent shots, her face goes from completely clean to streaked with smears of mud.

Continuity mistake: After Jeff has kicked and punched Barney, he is lying on the ground and blood is covering his mouth and nose and is staining his blazer. When he gets up, the blood patterns have changed and his blazer is no longer stained.

Plot hole: Just after Rita rescues Jeff, Diane's grave is seen close to where Jeff was buried alive. Even though Diane's been dead for several years, her make-shift grave site looks like it was freshly dug. There are no fallen leaves or other debris on top, no new vegetation (moss, grass, weeds, etc.) of any type growing on it, nor has the mound of dirt settled, shifted, or been affected by the weather.

Cop at Gas Station: Had you had a fight recently?
Jeff Harriman: Not a fight, a thing.
Cop at Gas Station: ...A thing?
Jeff Harriman: Yeah, a thing, don't you have a girlfriend?
Cop at Gas Station: Yeah. And what you think is a thing, you can bet your life she thinks is a fight.

Barney Cousins: To me, to kill is not the worst thing you can imagine. There is more.

Jeff Harriman: I just want to know what happened to Diane.
Barney Cousins: Then you'll want to listen to the story, and you'll want to listen carefully because sometimes the Devil is in the details.
