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?

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.
