Doctor Sleep

Other mistake: The type of gas pump Danny used when gassing up the car requires the lever be moved from the on to off position before the hose can be placed back into the pump. It is already in the off position before he finishes.

Continuity mistake: When Danny goes to their old room at the Overlook, the bathroom door only has one broken panel but in the Shining, both panels were smashed when Jack heard the Snow Cat arriving.

Other mistake: It seems strange that Rose the Hat doesn't sense the evil that inhabits the Overlook Hotel when she arrives. When the blood river flows in that hallway, Rose just grins at it, unaware of the danger she is in. As powerful as Rose is, she never sensed Danny's Shining ability back in 1980 even before the events at the Overlook Hotel.

Trivia: When we see Abra's house, the number on the front is 1980. That was the same year the original Shining was released.

Abra Stone: You're magic. Like me.
Danny Torrance: You need to listen to me. The world's a hungry place. A dark place. I've only met two or three people like us. They died. When I was a kid, I bumped into these things. I don't know about magic. I, I always called it "the shining."
