Continuity mistake: When Mike first enters room 1408, there are three light switches on the wall. He flicks on two of them. A few seconds later, you see the switches behind him, but it is two different switches that have been flicked.
The directors cut ends the movie differently. Instead of surviving the fire he dies in the fire and at the end they are having a funeral for him and the hotal manager Samual L. Jackson arrives after the funeral is over to give his wife the box of John Cusacks belongins that survived the fire and to tell her he did a great thing by destroying the room. She does not accept them and he gets back in the car with the box. He opens it up and listens to the tape recorder. Then he looks up in the rearview mirror and sees john cusacks character burned then it dissapears he starts laughing. Next shot is John Cusacks character in the hotel room smoking his cigarrette and the fades.
Question: In the office scene where Mike and Olin are speaking of all the deaths that have occurred in room 1408 they say a specific number for each type of death. I added all the numbers up and got 43 but Olin said there had been 56 deaths total. Is my addition wrong or was is it a coincidence that there were 13 deaths they didn't speak of?
