Factual error: In the basement scene where the blind man is shooting at the home invaders with the M9 Beretta, the weapon should lock with the chamber open once the last round is fired. Instead the slide goes forwards, allowing the blind man to continue pulling the trigger.

A Cure for Wellness picture

Factual error: The license plate of the car that takes the protagonist to the sanitarium is GR 36E46. That's not a valid Swiss plate: GR indicates the canton of Graub√ľnden, but other than that it is supposed to have only digits and no letters.

Viral picture

Factual error: Toward the end of the movie, we see a B-2 Spirit releasing bombs over the town. This is very unlikely, as this is probably the most expensive aircraft to operate in the USAF arsenal, and it has only 20 of them. There is no reason to use it over an area with no hostile enemy fire, when much cheaper and more available aircraft can to the same task.

Morgan picture

Factual error: I'm not 100% on the make of the bolt action rifle Lee is carrying but I know it contains an internal magazine of maximum 5 bullets. She opens the bolt, and no empty shell casing flies out, and for some unknown and stupid reason loads only one round into the chamber. Single shot bolt action rifles are usually very antiquated and hers isn't, or they are very large anti-material rifles with huge calibers of .50 BMG like the Steyr. (01:13:00)
