Audio problem: When Nell is helping Theo carry her bags to her room, Theo turns to Nell and says "well, everyone calls me Nell, don't you love it here?" Immediately, Theo then says "I love it." But her lips don't move, she's just smiling. (00:15:35)

Continuity mistake: While they're all having their first dinner at Hill House, everyone has a little red wine. The wine levels in Lili Taylor's glass go up and down between different shots. (00:24:35)

More quotes from The Haunting

Trivia: Ridiculously huge Jesus reference at the end. When Eleanor is blasted onto the door, her arms and legs are in the same position Jesus would've had. She is lowered down by the hands, much like Jesus would've. She also dies to save everyone else, a slightly smaller point is that you see the children 'die' and going into heaven. The bible says 'only those who are like a child are to go to heaven.'

Question: Who exactly was it that called Nell and told her to look up the ad about the insomnia program?

Answer: Another possibility is the spirits of the children. As long as Hugh Crain was inside the house, the children were trapped inside too. They could have called Nell because they needed her help in being set free.

Answer: Hugh Crain. He knew Nell was a descendent of his second wife, Carolyn.
