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: The lawyer Ben being killed after grabbing a suitcase of money is a bit of a callback to the original 1960 film. In that movie, the character Benjamin the lawyer is actually the main villain, and his motivation is that he's trying to find a hidden stash of cash inside the haunted house. He too meets a dark fate at the hands of supernatural forces after discovering the money.TedStixon
