- The film supposedly takes place in 1994, but in the supermarket, Michael displays an oatmeal and raisin flavored PowerBar. Oatmeal and raisin was not available in 1994.
- About an hour in the movie when they lost Josh, Heather's hands and fingernails can be seen. Even though the group has been in the woods for several days Heather's fingernails are perfectly clean.
- When Josh goes missing and the two others are calling his name, Mike is wearing a plaid shirt with a white t-shirt underneath. When they change views his t-shirt is black. When they cut back it's white again.
- At the beginning of the movie, when Josh is getting out of the car, a 1997-2003 Ford F-Series pickup can be seen in the background.
- In the house a red light flash (from a camera) can be seen though an open window.
- After waking up to find three stone piles surrounding their tents, the group decides to walk South for the day. However, they continue to walk toward the sunrise, which would be East.
- When Heather is showing off the contents of her pack there is a survival book on how to stay alive in the woods. It could have helped them, but they never used it. However, the reason they can't escape the woods is a supernatural one. The Blair Witch has control of the filmmakers and the woods, and a survival book would not have helped there.
- The three are lost in the woods but in one scene, about 25 feet behind them, a field can be seen through a small gap in the trees. The road is also visible as they try to find the trail.
- After the map is lost, there is much talk of following a single direction in the hope of getting out of the woods ASAP. The most obvious course of action (which occurs, apparently, to no-one) would be to follow the course of the river that they keep crossing then hiking away from.
- In Mike's reference to "The Wizard of OZ" in which he asks "Wicked Witch of the West, Wicked Witch of the East, which one was bad?" And Heather answers "Wicked Witch of the West was the bad one" Actually both Witches were bad. The Witch of the North was the good one.
- When they first try to cross the log, with the camera, to the cemetery, we hear Heather talking as she crosses the log. But her mouth never moves.
- When Josh and Mike first confront Heather about getting them lost, Heather's mouth does not move when she replies.
- Error in Math: At the beginning when they are interviewing the townspeople about Rustin Parr, they mention both that he killed children in pairs and that he had seven victims, however if he killed children in pairs he could not have had an odd number of victims.
- While Rustin Parr's house was said to be burned down (notably in Curse of the Blair Witch (1999)), we see it and go inside. But this is probably a supernatural phenomenon of some sort - possibly a time warp; it explains, in part, why the filmmakers were never found.
- Regarding Rustin Parr's MO of killing the town's children in pairs yet ending up with 7 total victims: This may have been foreshadowing. The ending suggests that the 3 filmmakers were among Parr's victims, which would leave an odd number.
