Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Nikolai is about to stab Jennifer, there is a distant shot where he says, "We have to make a really good impression on him," Jennifer isn't crying and her mouth is closed.

Character error 

Nikolai says, as the band is about to perform the ritual: "We got a waxing moon. Perfection." Then we get cut to a shot of a moon that's visibly shrinking, while waxing means growing moon.

The first time Needy and Chip walk away from her locker, the shoulder straps of Chip's backpack jump from one shoulder on, to two, to one, to two again.

Just after the fire in Needy's kitchen, Jennifer appears in profile, with a ghastly, toothy smile. In the next full-face shot, her mouth is closed, and the ghastly smile appears slowly.

In the Melody Lane bar, Jennifer returns with a tray of the two "9-11" drinks. She says, "Tower 1 isn't full enough." The camera cuts away and when it cuts back "Tower 1" is more full (blue layer). The camera cuts away again, and when cutting back, "Tower 1" is back to it's previous lower level.

Factual errors 

Needy does research on the occult and determines that Jennifer is a succubus, a demon which feeds on flesh. A succubus is believed to be a female demon that has intercourse with sleeping men, and does not, in fact, eat flesh.

Revealing mistakes 

After Melody Lane catches on fire and Needy and Jennifer are outside kneeling in the parking lot it is obvious that there are no lenses in Needy's classes as there is no reflection of the fire.

When Jennifer is in the forest with Jonas, as she unzips her jacket, it can clearly be seen that she has no belly button, though it is shown in other scenes.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

When Chip is almost dead and out of the swimming pool, Needy yells to Jennifer. Her face is very dirty, but in the next shot her face is almost clean.

Before Jennifer is stabbed, the right strap of Needy's dress is off her shoulder and damaged, while the left is intact and in place. When we see Needy's reaction, the straps are off both her shoulders. When Jennifer removes the pole and walks past Needy, the strap is back in place.

Factual errors 

Jennifer is killed by a utility knife with a snap-off blade that isn't thick, strong, or sharp enough to penetrate the rib cage. In real life it would cause some damage, but it would snap when it hit bone.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Jennifer kills Jonas in the woods, a deer eats Jonas' remains in one shot. Deer don't eat meat. However, this may have been deliberate to show the effect that Jennifer has on the various animals. They don't tend to silently gather to watch murders in the woods either
