Anachronisms 

When the Club Kids are walking through New York at Night you can see the distinctive "green x" logo of Microsoft's X-Box games console in an advertisement. The film is set in the 1980's and the X-Box did not appear till the 2000's.

Some props had styling cues of 1990s products, such as the boombox used to play a cassette tape with Stacey Q's "Two Of Hearts", alongside a 1990s Chevy Caprice being portrayed as the fed's car.

Much of the music that plays in the club scenes was not around when the original parties took place. For example, during the party where James St. James is in the "do not feed the drug child" cage (supposedly in the 80s), the music in the background is "Frank Sinatra" by Miss Kittin and the Hacker, a song which wasn't released until 2000. It is probable that the filmmakers knew about this, but used the songs anyway, due to their "retro" feel.

Factual errors 

Michael Alig was arrested while in the company of his male lover, not his female lover. Gitsie was a secretary, not a girlfriend. Alig has never been romantically interested in any woman.
