When Ben, Mark, Father Callahan, and Dr. Cody find Mike Ryerson in the basement of the Marsden house, Ben asks Mark to hand him a stake. He takes the stake with his left hand and is facing Fr. Callahan. In the next shot we see Dr. Cody checking Mike's pulse and behind him Ben is holding a flashlight in his left hand, with nothing in his right, and he is turned toward the doctor. The scene then cuts back onto Ben, who again has the stake.
