The Haunting

Factual error: The Crane mansion is supposed to be set above the village of Concord as listed in the ledgers, however, Nell answers an ad directing her to the Berkshires which are nowhere near Concord.

Factual error: The original and remake are both set in America, yet the outside shot of the flat at the start of the remake is in England. It is blatantly a 1920's London council flat, probably one of those in The Borough. The original 1962 film also contained British background details. Was this intended as homage to the original?

Revealing mistake: Right after Nell sends Hugh to hell, Dr. Marrow and Theo come out of hiding behind a pillar. As Marrow puts his hand on the pillar, it squishes in as if it was made of foam rubber, instead of stone. (01:39:50)

Eleanor "Nell" Vance: We couldn't even hear you.
Mrs. Dudley: No one could. No one lives any nearer than town.
Eleanor "Nell" Vance: No one will come any nearer than that.
Mrs. Dudley: In the night.
