When Mick & Geri go to the municipal building, the sign above the exit door reads, "court room/council chambers." I guess the trials are short and the hanging tree is yonder out that door.

Plot holes 

Near the end of the movie when Roger is attacking Mick, you can clearly see lights on in the house, even though all the power is supposed to be out.

Revealing mistakes 

When Roger is attacking Mick the last time (biting his thigh) and Mick begins hitting him with a flashlight, he is obviously hitting his own hand rather than Roger's head.
