Goofs

Continuity 

When Ash smashes a large window to exit from the house on Long Island, after the glass has shattered and fallen, there is still glass along the top of the frame as Ash and Telly start to walk through the frame. However, when the shot cuts to outside, we see them stepping through the frame and there is no more glass along the top of the frame.

When Ash and Telly enter the Long Island house it is daylight, but as they go through the house it is night (Ash is in the dining room with a lantern and there is complete blackness in the windows).

Before Telly starts tearing away the wallpaper in Ash's office we see a framed Hockey Jersey and five smaller framed pictures on the wall hanging over a desk. When she starts cutting the paper everything is still there, but the desk has been moved. Then when we pull back the only thing left is three small picture frames; everything else has disappeared.

When Telly is running away from NSAgents for the first time, she runs into the store and we see a shop assistant standing behind the cash desk. In the next shoot, when the NSAgent runs into the store, there is not only the man but also a girl behind a cash desk - she wasn't there in the first shoot.

When Telly is in Ash's apartment for the first time Ash takes a drink from a glass. There is some liquor left in the glass but when he turns and places it on the counter to refill it, the glass is empty.

At the beginning of the movie, when Telly first visits Dr Munce and thinks she had a cup of coffee when she came in, Dr. Munce has a dark (green?) coffee cup on the table next to him. When he picks it up, it's white. Then later it's a green one again.

When Ash is going through the bag of snacks in the motel, the container of Lays Stacks is lying down on the counter. In the next shot it's standing upright.

Errors in geography 

The address for the house on Long Island that is given is only the street address and "Long Island." In actuality, Long Island is made up of many smaller towns and different counties. There should have been the name of a certain town included in the address, otherwise the house could have been located anywhere on the whole island.

Factual errors 

When Detective Pope arrives at the Long Island house, she has a blue light flashing in the front of her unmarked car. The NYPD does not use blue lights, they use red lights in their unmarked cars.

Revealing mistakes 

When the children leave for summer camp, there are no leaves on the trees.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Crew or equipment visible 

In the alternate ending, when Telly is in the doorway struggling to get to her son in his bedroom, you can clearly see the wire attached to her waist that is pulling her back.
