When Anna's body falls out of the closet, you can see that she has her eyes fixed on one point, thus moving her eyeballs upwards as she falls down. After she was exhumed, her eyes were replaced by prosthetic ones, which were fixed, thus preventing movement. Obviously it were here real eyes which she couldn't keep still.
A scene of Frank picking up a girl in a disco near the end of the film was cut in the US version.
