  • The glass Bill uses to cut everyone's hands doesn't stay bloody for each character despite him never wiping it off.
  • Ben has a visible graze on his chin after being beaten up by Henry, but the day after the graze has completely disappeared.
  • Despite having cuts in their hands, mike holds hands and when they separate hands there is no blood.
  • When the town is having a parade and the children are talking within their group the baton twirlers in the background disappear and reappear from cut to cut.
  • The movie theater says "Lethal Weapon 2" is playing on July 4, 1989, but the movie didn't come out until July 7, 1989.
  • When Ed breaks his arm, his forearm is suddenly longer than it's supposed to be.
  • After the fight at the Barrens, the bully's head wound is still there 2 months later.
  • The blood on the neck/face changes in the final fight.
  • On the last day of school, some girls pour garbage and liquid muck on Beverly in the bathroom. She uses her book bag to partially shield herself. A short time later, when she talks to Ben outside, Beverly and her book bag are clean and dry.
  • The hole in the floor that Eddie fell through is gone when Bill and Richie come out of the room with the mattress. This is most likely due to the fact that Pennywise created the hole in order to stop Eddie from getting to Bill and Richie. He probably returned the floor to it's original state after Eddie fell through so that Bill and Richie won't know what happened to him, and increase their fear, due to them not knowing where Eddie is or what happened to him.
  • One of the televisions at the start of the film in one of the houses is a silver Sony CRT that was typical of the early 2000s rather than the late 1980s.
  • In the first pharmacy scene, the beauty products on the shelves have modern day packaging. Most noticeable are the Dial and Ivory soaps and the Olay products.
  • The drum equipment (Yamaha SFZ snare drum) used by the marching band wasn't introduced by Yamaha until 1992.
  • When Ritchie insults Henry he mentions his mullet. While mullets as a haircut were certainly popular in 1989, they weren't known as "mullets" until the mid-90s. Most sources agree that the first common usage of the term was by the Beastie Boys in 1994 on the song "Mullet Head". Originally coined in 1967 in the movie Cool Hand Luke (1967).
  • When Beverly meets the "Loser's Club" in the Pharmacy, Olay skin care products can be seen on the shelf behind her. In 1989 Olay products were known as Oil of Olay.

  • Derry, Maine is in the USA, however a war memorial contains the line "for king and country", revealing the filming location in Canada.
  • When Bill visits Georgie's room he picks up a green Lego turtle which later breaks on the floor. Green Lego brick other than plates for building structures on, or 1/3x1 plates did not exist in 1988/1989. Lego's reasoning behind this is they didn't want children building tanks from the bricks. The green 2x4 bricks shown were introduced in 1996 and the color lime (aka bright yellowish green) was introduced in 2001.
  • The TV shown in the background in the Denborough house is actually a Toshiba TV from the early 2000's. Also - the VCR (RCA) that is on top of the TV in the Kaspbrak house is from the late 90s/early 2000's.
  • During the scene in the drug store, you can see Covidien Curity bandages on the shelf. The scene takes place in 1988.

It was not named Covidien until 2007ish, products were not re-branded/repackaged until 2009-2010.
  • Police cars are shown with red and blue lights. Police cars in Maine only display blue lights.
  • A US Postal Service Jeep is seen featuring the "Sonic Eagle" logo in 1988. The "Sonic Eagle" logo was introduced in 1993.

  • When Beverly Marsh first meets Ben Hanscom, she signs his empty signature book. When she does this, she removes the cap of her pen with her mouth, and holds the cap in her teeth while writing. The camera switches between Beverly and Ben several times while she is writing, sometimes the cap can be seen in her mouth, but other times it is missing.
  • Several contemporary cars are parked in the background in some shots.
  • When Beverly smokes in the bathroom stall, you see her put out the cigarette on the wall with her right hand. In the next shot, seen from above, you can see her putting it out with her left hand, and in the following shot, she does it with her right hand again.
  • In one of the pharmacy scenes, a dome style security camera can be seen on the ceiling. This style of camera was not in use in 1989.
  • When Beverley takes her dad's measuring tape to explore her bathroom sink's drain, she drops the tape in the sink when she is being wrapped up by the gunk shooting from the drain. After the blood explodes from the drain and coats the bathroom, there is a shot of the the bloody sink but the tape is not there. The shot is at a bit of an angle, but the tape should definitely be visible in the sink as shown.
  • When Bev sits in the tub looking at the poem on the post card, she sets it down with the writing facing up. Later, not only does the position of the card change, but it now has the photo side facing up. Also, the card would have been warped after being covered in such a mess. Later we see only minimal streaks on the card.
  • After Patrick gets spooked by the Barron ghosts, he runs away and falls face first into the gray water. When he gets up, his face is wet, but relatively clean. When we get a clear shot of his face again when he's trapped, his face is covered in blood.

  • Bill cuts Bev's hand and grabs it underneath. In the next shot he is holding her hand over top.
  • Bill's bicycle named "Silver" has an inconsistent black marking on its right side. For example, it is there at about 70 minutes into the film, but 20 minutes later it is missing, and also seems to be a slightly different bike.
  • When Bill goes into the garage, his dad is sanding on a wood lathe facing the window, but the lathe tail stock is on the left. Typically, the tail stock is on the right. The next time we see him he is still facing the window, but the head stock is now on the left as it should be.
  • The large, open storm drain shown in the film's opening scenes is not common in Maine and is more commonly seen in the Western USA.
  • Bills wristwatch switches from the right hand to the left hand trough shots.
  • A large container train is shown in the background with modern logo Hapag-Lloyd containers. While double-stacked container trains were introduced in North America in the early eighties they were not common in 1989 because of low bridges and tunnels that had to be replaced to accommodate them.
  • While Georgie is running down the street after his boat, his Walker Talkie is in the right pocket of his rain coat and later it is in the left pocket.
  • The writing on the postcard that Ben gives to Beverly changes between the scene where Ben writes it and when Beverly reads it.
  • While Pennywise is speaking to Eddie after just chasing him in the form of a leper, he raises his upside down triangle of red balloons. While cutting to Eddie and then back to Pennywise, you can clearly see Pennywise holding the string attached to the balloons, but, in the final shots of him speaking, the string is nowhere to be found; as if the balloons had magically disappeared. However, this isn't the case, as you hear and partially see all of the balloons popping after Pennywise has finished talking.
  • On the last day of school when Beverly meets Ben, he has dropped his diorama several times breaking into many pieces. But after Beverly walks away, we see Ben get on his bike with the diorama intact.
  • When Eddie leaves Ben's house to walk down Neibolt St, he is wearing completely different clothes.
  • In the scene where Georgie puts the boat in the water, from the bay window view, the water is moving to the left, but he puts the boat in the water, it moves to the right.
  • When Henry walks toward the red balloon on his mailbox, his pants are wet as if he peed himself (probably in fear when his father shot the gun near him). But when Henry walks into the house moments later, holding the knife, his pants are dry.
  • When Ritchie and Billy are upstairs in the Neibolt house trying to get to Eddie, they choose the door not scary. When they open the door a female voice asks; "Where's my shoe?". Billy reaches for and turns on a light. This shouldn't have been possible because the house was run down and abandoned, so there shouldn't have been any electricity hooked up to the house.
  • During the rock fight, the Losers hit several of the bullies with very large rocks, but they simply bounce off without the bullies even flinching.
  • The rock fight is shown to take place on a rocky shore of a stream, but a shot of Belch shows him with a meadow behind him.
  • When Stanley is in the synagogue reading out loud from a book in Hebrew, he is clearly holding the book upside down, revealing the actor cannot actually read Hebrew.
  • Patrick can be seen standing next to Henry after bulling Stanley, Then he can be seen in the background getting of the ground when Bill insults Henry, Then He seen standing next to Henry again.
  • When Beverly is in her bathroom after the blood exploded, her dad opens the door from the left side. when the boys come over to see the mess, the door is hinged from the left side.
  • The inside and outside views of the windows of Billy's bedroom don't match. This is plainly evident at the beginning of the film. From the inside they are standard windows, but from the outside they are bay windows.
  • When the group go back to Bens room, Beverly closes the door and you see a New Kids on the Block poster on the back of the door. She and Ben exchange smiles, and then she reopens the door to hide the poster from the others. In the next shot, the door is closed and the poster is no longer on the back on it.
  • When Bill makes his comment about vomiting from his nose, his right hand is slightly raised, palm up. In the next shot his right hand is resting on his leg, palm down.
  • When Bill and Bev are kissing, the position of her hand on his face changes between cuts.

Spoilers

  • As Henry is about to bash Mike's head in with a rock, Mike's hands switch from being pinned under Henry's knees to pushing Henry away on his chest.
  • When Henry kills his father, there is very little blood on his face afterwards. But when he attacks Mike later at the Neibolt House, Henry's face is splattered with dried blood. A deleted scene shows he slit both Belch and Victor's throats and then drove Belch's car to the Neibolt house, explaining the extra blood.
  • Richie has a cut on his upper lip before Bill punches him.
