  • In the mental hospital lobby/waiting area there are a pair of modern drinking fountains mounted on the wall. This model did not exist in the 1960s.
  • When Stella and the others are at the drive-in movie, she is leaning on the car crying, and starts removing her fake witch warts. Two or three are left on her face, but when Stella turns her head to look at the others in the car, all warts have disappeared.
  • The audio/footage of "Night of the Living Dead" playing at the drive-in don't match up with each other, and the film's scenes are shown out of order.
  • The hairstyles on all the young men in the film aren't what they would have been in 1968. This is especially true of the football players.
  • Much of the dialogue in the film isn't what it would have been in 1968.
  • The walkie talkies shown in the film were of 1970s, not 1960s, vintage.
  • Last scene of the movie when they are driving beside the train - the car carriers in the 1960s were not enclosed - that's way later, like the 80's or 90's.
  • The railroad cars shown in the movie weren't from the 1960s. Auto racks weren't enclosed yet in 1968 - the railroad companies started putting sides, roofs and ends on the cars in the 1980s. Also, the while the Procor company existed in 1968, the tank cars and the Procor logo looked vastly different.
