Continuity mistake: As Lucius is lifting the door to the basement to help Ivy down you can see the curtains moving to the right of the door. The next angle is at floor level and the curtains are dead calm.

Other mistake: The morning after the creatures give warning, the camera pans across the village. To the right, just left of the school, is the house where Lucius is put after he is stabbed. Notice the two smaller windows to the right of the door. Fast forward to the last scene, Noah's parents are sitting on the left and behind them you get to see the window frames are larger than the windows seen from outside. My guess is that the windows were bricked up so there would be better lighting for that scene.

Trivia: When the floor is torn up and Noah has escaped, there are bird feathers everywhere. Next scene when Noah is in the hole and there are bird feathers everywhere as well. Toward the beginning of the movie when Ivy, Noah, and Lucius are at the resting rock, Noah pulls berries out of his pocket. Attached to the berries momentarily are feathers, they fall to the ground almost unnoticeable. I believe that possibly MNS wanted to give the hint that Noah already had access to the monster costume. It is also possible that Noah picked them up in the woods when he found the berries. I am leaning toward the first explanation.

Visible crew/equipment: When the security guard opens and then closes the vehicle door, you can see a crew member's feet.

The Village mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Ivy was talking to Lucius about how her older sister is spoken for, and how she is free to receive interest, her hand is on the other side of the pillar from her. When the angle changes, her hand is wrapped around to the front and she is almost hugging the pillar.

Continuity mistake: Noah is sitting on the porch after stabbing Lucius, in the background is the house where Kitty and Ivy are talking about the marriage, it has a lantern on only to the right of the door. Presumably moments later Kitty and Ivy emerge from the house and suddenly there is a lantern to the left of the door as well.

Continuity mistake: When Ivy and Noah have a foot race to the resting rock, they run toward the house off the right a little, but the resting rock is way to the right, off camera, when they round the corner you can see the house they ran past probably more than a 100 meters away. If you notice the layout they are probably running toward the direction the cemetery.

Continuity mistake: As Lucius grabs Ivy's hand to rescue her from the creature and takes her inside, their fingers are interlocked, when it shows the closeup of the hands, it is a closed finger grip.
