Continuity 

When Alex and David are fighting on the floor David pins Alex to the floor and grabs a knife from the worktop to stab through Alex's shoulder. The knife on the worktop is regular 14 centimeter kitchen knife which would not go through Alex's shoulder. However the knife through Alex's shoulder and the floorboard later on in the same scene is at least 30 centimeters.

Errors in geography 

The film is set in Edinburgh and Alex works on North Bridge, presumably for the Evening News newspaper. However, when the first body is found in the woods Alex arrives home with an armful of the copies of the Evening Times, Glasgow's evening newspaper (the movie was partly shot in Glasgow).

Revealing mistakes 

In the scene where the trio are driving across North Bridge at night, they have a lengthy conversation before the camera cuts back to the rear of the car, still crossing the bridge. They could have crossed the bridge twice at the speed they are driving.
