The People Under the Stairs

Plot hole: The Man goes completely trigger happy shooting all the walls all around his house, trying to kill Fool, Leroy, and Roach at different points. The police come in and don't notice anything wrong. What about the bullet holes all over the place? (00:41:35)

Revealing mistake: When the man pushes Leroy's body down the basement stairs, as his body is sliding down, when it's almost to the bottom, you can plainly see Leroy lift his head up as he's sliding, although he's dead.

Continuity mistake: When Fool hides behind the cat-flap style vent, at the end of the hallway, The Man comes down with his gun. The items behind the vent change position (eg. the cloths, bones, etc.) (00:45:45)
