The Polaroid camera used to scare off the monsters has a flash strip on top of it with 10 single use bulbs in it. Sally shoots off 2-3 dozen flashes on a device that is only capable of 10. The direction and location of the used, cloudy flashes changes from shot to shot as well.

Factual errors 

The movie often offers close-ups of the BMW's "Rhode Island" license plate, but the numbers are red, like Massachusetts license plates. For over 15 years Rhode Island licenses plates have had blue lettering with a blue background featuring a wave graphic.

Plot holes 

When Sally smashes one of "The Fairies" between two book cases in the library, the creature's body should serve as evidence of their existence to her skeptical father, yet the body is never again referred to.

Plot holes 

While supposedly alone, the worker is slashed, beaten and stabbed to the point of near death. Yet nobody once questions how this "accident" could have happened or how he managed to end up with scissors sticking out of his neck.
