Other mistake: Marcia Sindell calls Buster to check on Paul's whereabouts. She doesn't tell him what firm she works for, what city she's calling from, or her phone number. Yet, Buster says when he gets some information on Paul, he'll call her back and they both hang up.

Other mistake: When James Kahn is reading the scrapbook and finds a newspaper article, Anne M. Wilkes is printed in the newspaper title, but a photo to the right of the article shows "Anne C. Wilkes" as the name below the photo.

Other mistake: When Annie forces Paul to burn his new book, she puts charcoal lighter fluid on the draft of his new book. She then adds more to some pages inside the book. The words on the inside page are not a fictional story but a review of the movie Say Anything by Cameron Crowe.

Other mistake: When Annie shoots the sheriff in the back, he fall forwards on the staircase where he stood. Annie walks down without moving around the corpse of the sheriff. She just advances forward as if he isn't there.

Suggested correction: The incident that this question is referring to is in the book - it was never added in the movie. Annie kills the young cop with her lawnmower. It was left out of the movie because the director didn't want the audience to hate the actress Kathy Bates, also which is why he had her use a sledgehammer instead of cutting off his feet.
