The Haunting

Luke gets his head ripped off by the lions head in the fireplace. Nell is the great-granddaughter (or great-great-granddaughter, whichever) of Hugh Crane (the owner of the house who killed the children and haunts the house). Nell, the doctor (Liam Neeson) and Theo (Catherine Zeta-Jones) lead Crane to a door where a bunch of spirits trap him. The souls of all the children can finally rest in peace. Nell realizes she has to stay at the house to protect the souls of the children and then dies. Theo and the doc leave the house.

Continuity mistake: When Nell arrives at Hill House, after Mr. Dudley opens the gate and she drives through, between shots the amount of brown leaves on the ground around the gates increases.

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: How could Eleanor be related to Hugh Crain if all of Hugh's children died at birth?

Answer: Crain had two wives. All of his children from his first wife, Renee, died at birth and then Renee killed herself. Later we find out that Crain had a second wife, Carolyn, and they did have a child who survived. Carolyn is Eleanor's grandmother.
