Character error

Continuity 

Despite being one of the few slasher films rated PG13, whenever someone is stabbed, their bodies show no stab wounds when they reappear. The only character with blood stains where they had been stabbed has no holes in their clothing where the stab wounds would be.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Donna is going back to her room after the alarm has sounded, the camera switches from behind to in front of her. When it does, you can see a man walking around in T-shirt and Jeans. The entire building had already been evacuated and no one should have been upstairs. That and besides the fact that everyone was in prom attire.

Factual errors 

After the fire alarm is pulled, Donna rides the elevator to the 3rd floor. When a fire alarm sounds, all elevators go to the first floor and stop working, so no one gets stuck in the elevator during a fire.
