Continuity mistake: When Shannon Elizabeth is attacked by the ghost she has scratches on her face, then when they are all sitting huddled in the corner the next shot of her, there are no scratches on her face. (01:30:01)
It turns out that the man that seemed to be dead at the junkyard was alive the whole time and the lady who saved Arthur's daughter from the jackal was working with him. The children end up in the center of the machine and Arthur jumps in and saves them. Several of the ghosts finally get their hands on the evil man we thought was dead and kills him. The machine is destroyed and so is the house, and all of the spirits cross over. Arthur and his family get to say goodbye to their wife/mother who stays behind for a moment and was one of the spirits, and appears one last time with a nice looking dress and without the burn mark on her face to tell the family she loves them, then leaves. Maggie appears, mentioning she is quitting her nanny job.
Trivia: At the end of the film, the Withered Lover is standing on the place where the Torso sat. Both of these ghosts were rather harmless, and the Torso, while described as dangerous, never attacked anyone, including Cyrus, and walked to his head near Bobby. The only other ghost seen that is more or less harmless is the First Born Son, who is more of a taunter and prankster. This ghost died a quick death, being shot in the head by an arrow by another kid accidentally.
Question: Dennis says that all the ghosts are violent. Well, then why are the First Born Son, the Torso, and the Withered Lover the harmless ones? Now, the 1st and 2nd ghosts had some danger to them, but not much - the Torso is only seen crawling to its head and doesn't even lift Cyrus, while the First Born Son seems to be more of a prankster than actually malicious and doesn't lift Cyrus. Is this a movie mistake or just the side result of poor movie filming?
