Plot holes 

While Karaman is questioning Steven in the kitchen, he points out that Steven's footprints are visible all around the body in the blood. We also have seen that when Emily left the kitchen she left a trail of bloody footprints. However, when Steven runs to the door to fix the lock, he miraculously leaves no bloody prints on the floor.

Revealing mistakes 

After the scene, where Steven opens a door for policemen, a camera pans down the spiral stairs. You can see two officers down there on the stairs obviously waiting for director's command and then start moving simultaneously.
