The blood over Julie's eye changed slightly from one scene to the next. Most of it, she had the same blood smear but in one scene, the blood was on her eyelid when it wasn't in the rest of the scenes.

Miscellaneous 

In a hotel room, one of the guest telephones had a modular connector on the telephone handset, rather than being hard-wired to the telephone base. This was not common until many years later.
