When Frank first opens the puzzle box in the beginning of the film, the inner sides of the sliding pieces are white. Later, when Kirsty opens the box in the hospital, the box's inner sides are brown woodgrain, just like the exterior of the box.

When Kirsty first wakes up in the hospital bed, the tray-table in front of her is empty. The doctor comes in and deposits the puzzle box on the table. He says he'll get her a phone after they've talked. However, directly after he leaves, we see that a phone has appeared on the table. It is neither mentioned nor used.

At the start of the film where Frank is buying the box, when the camera is zoomed in on the box, you see two glasses, but when the camera is zoomed out there is only one on the table. Also throughout these shots, everything on the table moves around.

At the end Kirsty sends the female Cenobite back to hell by pushing the box down into it's original cube shape but in the next frame the box is back in it's previous position.

At the start of the film when Kirsty is walking towards the house you can see her hair is evenly sitting behind her head, but in the next scene when the camera looks back at her, her hair is bunched to one side.

Nuns would not just walk past a woman with blood on her shirt looking like she's just been attacked. They would have helped her immediately.

Miscellaneous 

One of the characters at Julia and Larry's housewarming party (Bill) fluctuates between having an American and an English accent (Possibly a dubbing error).

Plot holes 

When Kirsty bumps into the corpse and the maggots fall out,that would suggest that the decomposing dead man had been there for some time. Even if it was well hidden by Julia(and perhaps also by Frank) the smell of a decaying body or two would be noticed.

Revealing mistakes 

When The Monster in the tunnel chases Kirsty back towards the hospital room, you can see the trolley and wheels the monster is being wheeled on. Also whilst Kirsty is running away, the camera cuts to the tunnel, and it seems she is running the wrong way (the tunnel with the painted disappearing point appears supposedly ahead of her).

When seen from inside, the attic has a single window made from four separate panels of glass. However, from the exterior shots, the real house has six panels. It makes obvious that the internal scenes were shot elsewhere: in fact, they were the only scenes filmed in a sound stage.

When Kirstie is trying to get out of the hospital room she says the door is locked. However, when she walks away from it we can see a push-plate on the door and no handle or lock mechanism.
