Continuity mistake: During the bridge collapse scene, when Olivia is crawling on the beam, she is first seen on the part of the beam that is closer to Sam. Almost instantly afterwards, she is on the part of the them that is closer to Molly. The space between the two beams increases significantly between the two shots as well.
Factual error: The Song "Looking for the Magic" by the Dwight Twilley Band plays on repeat several times throughout the movie, however it comes up as track 1 on the CD player each time."Looking for the Magic" was never the first track on a Dwight Twilley CD - It was track 2 on the group's 'Twilley Don't Mind' album released in 1977. You can tell the disc is not a homemade mix CD by the printing on the top of the CD the first time it is placed in the tray.
Plot hole: Towards the end of the movie, the characters use cell phones to determine whether or not the enemy is coming. However, throughout the whole movie, one of the girls has her cell phone, which never goes off even when the enemy is close.
Factual error: The character Peter has a modern haircut that would not have been found during medieval Europe; his hair defying gravity despite being a time without hair gel.
Plot hole: The very last scene shows Mary building a wall, apparently in her belfry. But there should still be the original wall that Rose built, with the hole in it that Mary smashed in. By killing Rose / having killed Rose, she prevents further harm, but all effects that took place before that (also the building of the wall), should stay (like her scars).It is very unlikely Mary broke down the whole wall just to add another body.

Factual error: The young priest sees images of a red-eyed horse, but later, it is referred to as a mule, which looks much more like a donkey.
Continuity mistake: Three teen boys are abducted to be killed at the church. One breaks free and finds a weapons cache and dies in that room, while his killer dies outside that room. Soon after, the preacher and his wife find the dead church member, then look into the weapons room to see two of the teen boys dead, side by side. But the second hasn't been killed yet, and dies running away from the church later, shot by the the local sheriff by mistake. (00:40:40 - 00:48:00)John W Rosa
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lily is hiding behind Thomas' computer desk, she uses her little Eiffel tower necklace to put inside the socket to short out the power. When she goes to put it in, you can see the computer is plugged in on the bottom socket. After a really quick cut scene, the computer is now plugged in on the top socket. (01:05:00)mikedtcom
