Car trouble: when Ben (Oliver Reed) and his son try to flee from the evil house in the family station wagon, we see how Ben forcefully bashes the car into a large fallen tree numerous times. Yet just a few scenes later, the car shows not a nick or dent anywhere on the body. It's obvious that in their isolated location, no body or repair work could have been performed on the car to put it back into such pristine condition.

Factual errors 

The Kirby vacuum that Karen Black is using on the steps, she turns it off via a switch on the handle. That series of Kirby never had a handle switch, it would have had a toe switch down by the motor.
