Visible crew/equipment: As Nell turns around to see all the lights in the house turning on, we see in the background, the rest of the group trying to save Luke, but at the very beginning of the shot, you see a blue light quickly flicker behind Nell, that couldn't have been the cars lights, which only means that was the crew's lights.

Visible crew/equipment: As Nell runs away and tries to hide in the carousel for the second time, the camera, in an above shot, passes behind a pillar. Just after that we see the reflection of a camera's tripod in one of the glasses across the room on the right side of the screen. (01:14:50)

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)

Theo: You know what, the rest of you may hate your insomnia but I'm not sure I want a cure for mine. That's when I get all my best ideas... I'm alone, occasionally... with no distractions. My mind is racing with creative ideas and come 3am I feel like a genius.

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.
