Revealing mistakes 

As the miners are trying to break down the washroom door, the camera pans over the door frame from Rose's side to the miners' side. Just as it settles into its final position, you can see the sliding wall section they used to allow the camera to pan, sliding back into position on the left of the door frame.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

Agent Cybil Bennett uses a Surefire M6 Guardian flashlight that has a temporary tailswitch with a twist on constant switch, but in the movie you can clearly hear the typical click of a click on switch.

In the search for room 111, Rose cuts open the painting and the camera pulls in for a shot of the door and room number behind the painting. You can then hear Rose cutting the painting more to make room for her body, but in the shot, there are no new slices in the painting nor is it even evident that the painting is being disturbed. However, in the next shot, the hole is clearly wider than it was before, the corner shaped differently than it was in the previous image.

When Rose is at the gas station, she's wearing a locket around her neck. The next time you see the necklace pendant, as she first walks through Silent Hill's main road through town, she is wearing a carabiner as a necklace pendant and not the locket. In the next scene where you can see the necklace pendant, when she wakes up in the bowling alley, it's back to a locket.

When Christopher and officer Gucci, who's wearing a blue tie and gray trench coat, come out of the building, the camera switches back and forth between Rose and Christopher. When it finally reveals officer Gucci in the background, behind Christopher, we notice he's wearing a different colored tie and trench coat.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Christopher breaks into the Brahams archives offices at about 0:59:45, the clearly visible orange anodized end caps and typical wiring on the fluorescent tubes identify them as Kino-Flo lights, a specialist type manufactured solely for the film industry. The arrangement is quite different to a conventional domestic lighting system. Orange end-caps indicate a tungsten-balanced tube; blue would be daylight.

Errors in geography

The film is supposed to take place in West Virginia, yet all the local townspeople have distinguishable Canadian accents - the movie's primary filming location.

Factual errors
