Corrected entry: When Ivy starts climbing the ivy near the end of the movie, what later proves to be a rather substantial and solid fence wobbles noticeably for some time.

Corrected entry: No village of the actual 1890s was as self-sufficient as the one portrayed in the movie. Sure, the villagers in the movie produced a lot of things themselves, and surely brought a great deal of supplies and machinery, etc, with them, but it simply isn't possible to go as long as they did and never need anything whatsoever from the outside world (more manufactured things like nails, hammers, tools, etc; salt, which they had no way of making; iron for horseshoes and wagons and plows; etc.) It would be one thing if they had chosen to live like the Native Americans, who did live much more autonomously (though even they traded), but they use things that they neither could have made themselves nor that would have lasted them the whole time they live in the village without needing repair or replacement.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the village people are eating together for the second time, if you look at the far table there is a boy on the left end wearing a red sweater. If red is the "bad color" and they have to bury anything red, why is the boy wearing red?

Corrected entry: While Ivy's father is leading her to "the old shed which we must never use", he tells her a story about his father who, he says, was "shot in the head by a business partner". As there appear to be no guns anywhere in the village, how would she know what he meant? Similarly, when she is shown the "creature" costumes in the shed, she recognizes one as "those we don't speak of" as soon as she touches it. How could she, when she has never touched and certainly never seen one before?
