Devil

Factual error: Detective Bowden's son is ejected from the front of the car and there is a hole in the front windshield. The collision was a straight side-swipe and his momentum should have taken him out the passenger-side window. He would have gone out the windshield if the car had been rear-ended or if they had crashed head-on into something, but the car came to rest in an open field.

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the fire dept arrives it is raining heavily yet when they arrive inside the building to help they are all completely dry.

GBLACKFORD

Factual error: At the beginning of the movie; a person is seen falling from a top floor high-rise. Pushed, thrown or jumping, his is highly unlikely. The exterior windows (those from floor to ceiling, or those that replace traditional exterior walls) would be triple plated, like that of a bank partition (think of 3 car windshields glued together) One would have to repeatedly bang on it with a sledgehammer before it would even crack, let along jump clean through.

Trivia: All five characters who get on the elevator have the color red in common: the Mechanic's satchel, the Old Woman's hair, the Young Woman's nails, the insignia on the Guard's uniform and the Salesman's tie are all red. M. Night Shyamalan is known for having red as a prominent feature in his films.

Question: When Tony is trying to close the dead old woman's eyes, the security guard states the body has to be dead for a few hours in order for the eyes to close. Is this true?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: Yes. When the body dies, gasses begin escaping through any way they can, and can force the eyes to stay open. This is also true for a body that has been dead for several hours, once decay starts, the decaying causes gasses. But also when the body is freshly dead, the muscles and nerves are confused and keep firing for a long time, causing muscle spasms like feet and hands wiggling on the deceased, or even eyes popping open suddenly as if the person is awake. This is why the eye lids are sown shut on bodies at funerals and stuff, to prevent the eyes from popping open and freaking out the people viewing. And in older times, coins would be places over the eyes to hold them shut.

Question: Are there any clues throughout the movie hinting that the old woman is the devil?

Chosen answer: There weren't any clues. It comes off as a total surprise during the reveal. But watching it for the second time, I did notice that she spoke very less compared to others and no one was suspecting her. Usually, that kind of character ends up being the bad guy.
