Bloopers Edit

Note: These were taken from the Autopsy page at IMDB. Their accuracy has not been verified.

  • A brief glimpse of a wall sign as Emily runs up a flight of stairs shows the letters to be backwards, indicating that the shot was reversed.
  • After Jude's death, Emily runs up a flight of stairs, seen with the sharp tool she used to stab Travis with. When she exits the stairs and enters the hallway, she is empty handed.
  • When the girl answers the phone at the nurse station, she does not depress the lighted line button. This was necessary on these types of phones. As it sat with no line depressed, she would have had no connection.
  • When Jude wants to open the bottle of nitrous gas, Scott prevents him, claiming it is flammable. Actually nitrous oxide is a non-flammable gas.
