When Jeff puts Erica in the closet, she is already in rigor mortis. If the timeline of the story is correct, Jeff kills Erica, puts her clothes on the floor, puts her in the closet, and 'reappears' to the group minutes later fully clothed. Rigor mortis would not set in that fast.

When the tour group meets Kim in the cemetery, she is lying on a grave with the name "Treacle" written on the headstone, but when they move past the the headstone and see it from the other side, it clearly has the name "Further" written on it, and also looks much older. (This is due to an extra on the DVD version, which includes watching a section backwards to look for clues. These clues then point you to different parts of the film to solve a puzzle, the tombstone is part of that. There is also a shadow of a tombstone that appears as a cross and then just a normal tombstone, and also ghost images throughout the film.)

Jeff's van has colorful beads and what appears to be a rabbit's foot hanging on a noose from the rear view mirror as he is driving his group to the campsite. However, when Kim later takes his van to the store to get beer and later crashes the van on the way back to Jeff's house, the beads and rabbit's foot are nowhere to be seen.

Errors in geography 

The movie's action is set in Burkittsville, MD, which is in Frederick County, but at the end the characters are seen being hustled into what is clearly labeled the "Howard County Courthouse," which is located in Ellicott City, MD, nowhere near Burkittsville.

Revealing mistakes 

At the end of the film, when Tristen is hiding the tapes, she is being filmed. However, the camera moves as if someone is holding it. How can anyone hold it if she sent the rest of the group into the forest to kill the tourist team?

Next to the front door of the factory there are several Maryland license plates hanging on the wall. All the plates are the same. This is obviously just a license plate collection.
