When Jeff drives up to the cabin to meet Kathie, he says it's getting dark, and as he turns off the main road into the forest, headlights are shining on Kathie. However, minutes later, after Fisher is dead, Kathie leaves with the car and there are no headlights on to guide her through a supposedly dark forest. In actuality, it was probably filmed in daylight then filtered to look dark, but someone forgot to show the headlights that were needed in the false evening.
