Visible crew/equipment: During the scene in the library when Matthew Lillard is forced to tell the husband who the 13th ghost is, you can see the director's face through the glass wall in the bottom left while they are carrying out the glass panel. (01:01:15)
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: While the Withered Lover is stated to be proactive for the side of good, two other ghosts are never seen actually attacking or scaring someone. The First Born Son is more of a taunter and prankster, though the Torso seems to be more or less harmless as he doesn't even hurt Cyrus. The Dire Mother is also seen as harmless by herself, but she is accompanied by her disabled son Harold who carries an axe for protection.
Question: In the film we see one ghost that is more of a neutral spirit. It is never seen harming anyone and the only time it scares someone is when it walks towards Bobby, but his head is near Bobby. Is the Torso a murderous spirit or not?
