The Ring

Revealing mistake: In the scene when the main character is in the library on the internet, she goes to a couple of websites. When the shot shows the URL up top, it is C:\windows98\mydocuments\etc.html. Instead of actually searching on the web they used a premade html page and accessed it from their computer.

Revealing mistake: During her research on the video tape Rachel comes across a picture of Anna Morgan drinking champagne with some friends. It's quite obvious that her picture has been copied in. (00:41:25)

Revealing mistake: When Rachel is racing to save Noah, she is trying to call him on her cell phone. There is a shot of two hands on the steering wheel as the car turns and then a cut to her holding the phone in one hand a split second later while she was talking the entire time, showing that the shot with both hands was a stunt double and not her.

Revealing mistake: After Katie pulls the TV plug she tries to find Becca. When we see her from upstairs there's a reflection on the floor next to her that can only come from a ceiling light. However, there's no light falling on her. (00:06:30)

Revealing mistake: In the end, when we see the closeup of Samara's eye, you can see several white sheets used to reflect light into her face, as well as the reflection of the camera, in dead center of her pupil.

Revealing mistake: After Rachel tumbles down the well, we see her heavy-duty Eveready Commander Flashlight, 12-volt battery and all, bobbing above the surface of the water like a cork. Which is ridiculous. A real 12-volt Commander Flashlight would sink like a rock, because it weighs about 4 pounds. However, the filmmakers needed to explain how Rachel could see at the bottom of a pitch-black well, so they used a lightweight, floating flashlight prop, supposedly providing a light source for the scene.

Trivia

Between some scenes you can see a flash of the ring, as seen at the beginning of the tape (and what Rachel sees when she looks up in the well as the lid is pushed back on).
