Revealing mistakes 

It's very obvious that all the "underwater" shots of the lake were shot in a swimming pool: during the first murder of the girl after the opening credits, you can even see an exit sign through the water. Near the end of the movie, as the Zombie are rising to the top, we can clearly see a bare pool wall.
