Incorrectly regarded as goofs

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

In the opening scene, crickets are seen inside the lamp of the light post.Crickets do not fly, nor climb very well, so they wouldn't be inside the lamp. Also, the roaches in the jar in a later scene are Madagascar hissing roaches. They are completely harmless, herbivorous and wouldn't have tried to or been able to bite or burrow into flesh.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When the policeman looks into the window and sees the dead boyfriend's body, the camera moves over the body and it can be seen that one finger slightly twitches. While the viewer might assume this was unintentional, it may have been on purpose to establish that the boyfriend continued to live, albeit in a horrific fashion.
