Continuity mistake: When Cheryl is running through the woods, she is wearing slippers that stay on up until she reaches the cabin door. However, in following shots, she is shown barefoot, and when Ash opens the door her foot is dirty as if she'd been running barefoot the whole time. (00:28:05 - 00:29:10)
Continuity mistake: In Jack's first appearance to David in the hospital room, Jack uncovers the food on the tray and takes a piece of toast from another plate on the tray. The silver cover on the tray changes position throughout the scene in various shots. Sometimes the cover is resting partly on the tray and sometimes flat on the tray table surface.Randy DeShong
Revealing mistake: When Joe has died of blood poisoning there is a close up of his head and neck, you can see him breathing and his eyes flicker.
Visible crew/equipment: When Michael Caine leaves the Last Chance Saloon at night and is walking along a sidewalk in town, he looks inside one of the store windows to see something moving under an old cloth. As he looks closer to the window, suddenly a hand jumps out from under the cloth and crashes through the store front window from the inside and grabs Michael Caine's throat. What is so laughable is that the crew or extra who is putting his hand through the breakable glass to get at Michael Caine's throat fails to "hide" his entire arm from view and what is supposed to be a severed hand is not only the hand but the entire arm attached.
