1408 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Mike first enters room 1408, there are three light switches on the wall. He flicks on two of them. A few seconds later, you see the switches behind him, but it is two different switches that have been flicked.

Continuity mistake: While the frozen room is breaking down, the red lamp and the table next to it keep changing positions between shots.

Continuity mistake: The match box in the ashtray in Room 1408, right after Mike enters, changes position and illustration in 2 seconds time.

Continuity mistake: Mike scrapes snow away from the weather control but leaves no marks on the ice. Half a second later, from a wider angle, there's two big spots with no ice.

Continuity mistake: When Mike opens the laptop, the screen is folded slightly backwards, in the following shots its positioned in a straight angle.

Continuity mistake: As Mike is checking his mail in the diner, a lick of hair hangs down above his right eye until he comes across an envelope he finds interesting. As he opens it, the lick is gone, his hair is suddenly near-perfect.

Continuity mistake: When Mike is speaking with Olin the first time, Olin has a handkerchief in his chest pocket, and two 'points' stick out. But after Olin tells Mike that he thought the "father was a bastard", there are three points sticking out for the rest of the conversation, even through the elevator ride.

Continuity mistake: As Mike scrolls through the microfilm, we see his view as the pages scroll from right to left. The shot then reverses to show his face through the scrolling film, but while the film is now properly reversed, it's still moving right to left in our view. But this reversed angle should show it moving left to right.

Continuity mistake: After slamming his hand in the window, Mike bangs on the front door leaving blood on the left side of the map on the door. Later in the film, there is blood on both sides.

Continuity mistake: When Mike is in the room holding his crying daughter, the blood trails from his nose and ears change constantly between shots.

Continuity mistake: After Mike enters through the window, he lays down and his left arm is extended up to his head. Depending on the angle, in about 2 seconds it is in different positions, without him moving it.

Continuity mistake: When frozen Mike opens the laptop the lamp behind keeps moving around between shots.

Continuity mistake: When the clock starts and scares Mike, it swaps from facing front to sideways between shots.

Continuity mistake: The position of the towels used to stop the leaking faucet differs from the time Mike leaves the bathroom and a shot several seconds later, while he's on the phone.

Continuity mistake: At the end, when the woman brings the box, the wide shot shows the right lid down. The next shot it's up. She couldn't have opened it because she was holding the box with her hand from the bottom part.

Continuity mistake: Halfway through the film, Mike is wandering inside the room and knocks down a red vase. A second later it appears back on the table.

Continuity mistake: Mike unplugs the radio and knocks the bottle from the table. Then he picks up the phone and says "I didn't order no sandwich", and the bottle reappears on the table.

Continuity mistake: Mike goes to the window, leaving a can, food and a bottle on the night table. When he comes back only the bottle remains.

Continuity mistake: At the hotel in the beginning during the rainstorm, you can see a gap on the road of where rain isn't falling as well as where it stops in the distance. Once Mike's truck comes to a stop, the camera angle changes and the "rain" gap is gone.
