Anachronisms 

Although the movie takes place around 1767, some of the soldiers use muskets fitted with percussion locks during the hunt. Such locks were patented in the first decade of 19th century and came into popular use after the Napoleonic Wars.

Mani would not have been called a "Mohawk", even by the Chevalier De Fronsac, as this tribe had not yet been granted this official unique name. In French, he would have been called an "Agnier", "Iroquois" or simply "Indian".

When de Fronsac gets out of bed after the nightmare and walks to the window, while hearing the band, he lacks the scars on his chest. Both the bear and arrow scars.

When Chatel is attacked by peasants in the beginning of the movie, he is struck to the right side of his forehead (it is clearly visible, as the wound bleeds profusely). Later in the movie, the bruise and stitches are on the left side.

Plot holes 

The conspirators sent a letter about their conspiracy and their plans to the Pope. The Pope only sent Sylvia and nobody else, although he would have the authority to stop the Brotherhood.

At the beginning, Fronsac says the monster will be examined thoroughly in Paris. Everybody, including him, must have forgotten this intention by the time Beauterne arrived, as Beauterne wouldn't have got away with the fake beast if it was examined as planned.

Revealing mistakes 

When Grégoire is shown using pumpkins for target practice, the pumpkins shatter and splash an opaque orange fluid. Pumpkins do not contain such fluid inside them.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

The body of the young woman which is used as bait for the wolf is that of the shepherdess (the lady with the goat), who isn't killed until about an hour later in the movie. (The shepherdess scene was originally shot to take place much earlier in the film and when it was switched to later, they just hoped no one would notice the body was identical.)

In the final battle scene, before Fronsac kills Jean François, when he kills one of the "wolf-women" we can clearly see that he strikes the ground and not the woman's body.
