Character error 

When they're in the hallway Sukeena designed, Prof. Reardon says that Ellen Rimbauer disappeared on Jan. 15th, 1950 when she was 70. She couldn't have possibly been 70, because earlier in the series, Prof. Reardon stated that Ellen was 20 in 1906 when she got married.

When Joyce Reardon is teaching her class and is probed by Kevin Bolinger, he claims he is "class of '03". The subtitle at the beginning gives the year as 2001, ten years after Annie's 1991 incident with the dog, and yet, when Bolinger is dropped off at Rose Red by Professor Miller, Miller tells him he will be out in the real world "in a matter of weeks", as if he stood to graduate.

Plot holes

Revealing mistakes 

The group goes to visit "Rose Red" on Memorial Day weekend, which is at the end of May. The shots taken outside during the movie show the leaves all off of the trees and all over the ground in autumn colors, and there is a football game on TV, suggesting that it is more like October.
