When the professor lecturing is shown far away the word "Before" on the chalkboard behind him is completely underlined. Next time the professor is shown in his closeup, only part of the word, "Befor" is underlined. The letter "e" is clearly NOT underlined. Then afterward, he is shown in a blurry mid-shot, the word "Before" is completely underlined once again.

Factual errors 

The librarian who shows Casey the copy of the antique "Book of Mirrors" simply requests that she "Please exercise care when handling the manuscript." In fact such manuscripts are never allowed to be handled without cotton gloves - though Casey is subsequently shown to be turning pages with her bare hands.

When Rabbi Sendak is translating the Hebrew text that Casey gave him, he appears to be turning the pages from right to left. Because Hebrew is written from right to left, he should be turning the pages from left to right.

Twins of different gender are fraternal one hundred percent of the time. Fraternal twins are obviously conceived when the mother releases two or more eggs during ovulation which are then fertilized by two of the father's sperm cells. Therefore, fraternal twins have separate amniotic sacs one hundred percent of the time and as such it would be an anatomical impossibility for the umbilical cord of one fetus to strangle the other.

In the link between the movie reel and nightclub scenes a train is shown going past in reverse. The audio is convincing, however the headlights on the train give it away. The cars under the bridge are also in reverse.
