The Amityville Horror

Easter egg: If you look under Special Features, use the arrow keys to highlight "On Set Peeks", then use the left arrow key to light up a Red symbol. If you click on it, another menu called Haunts will appear with 2 more features - one shows a long version of the home movies shown in the film. The other is a scare reel that shows all the scary parts of the movie condensed to about 2 minutes.

Continuity mistake: When Kathy and George kiss on the bed, and in following shots, the mug on the desk to the viewers right of the bed constantly rotates itself, evident by the mug handle. (00:04:20)

Trivia: Ryan Reynolds chose to keep away from Jesse, Jimmy and Chloe so that when his character's personality started changing, it would be easy for him to transition into George's physical and verbal abuse. Ryan's distance from the three young actors made them think Ryan didn't like them.

More trivia for The Amityville Horror

Question: Probably it's for dramatic impact, but it seemed strange that Ryan Reynolds' character would rush out to the boathouse on seeing the red balloon. It would have made more sense to check her room first, but he leaves (and even dives into the icy lake) without telling anyone. If it was out and out panic, wouldn't he wake his wife? Apart from as a plot device, any ideas why?

Answer: He sees the balloon, and instantly assumes his step-daughter is inside the boat house, and hence is in danger of slipping and drowning (or perhaps already in such a situation). He rushes straight out to get there as quickly as possible. Checking her room, or telling his wife would take up time, not to mention he is probably running on adrenaline.
