Trivia: Originally the fate of Louis Creed was meant to be more subtle and open - his deceased wife Rachel was to walk into the kitchen and discover him alone and end there; in the film, a grotesque Rachel embraces him while grabbing a knife and we hear his scream just when the screen fades to black.

Trivia: Fred Gwynne, who had played the lovable monster dad Herman Munster on The Munsters, here plays the huge elderly neighbor Jud Crandall, who is well aware of the strangeness of the cemetery.

Continuity mistake: There is no knife on the table when the wife enters the kitchen at the very end, however, she walks straight to Louis, hugs him and then magically a knife appears at the edge of the table which she picks up and uses to stab him (implied - the movie actually ends at that point).

Question: Why did Louis kill Church at the end? He only planned on killing Gage if he came back like Timmy Baterman did, and he could have just walked in after distracting Church with the meat.

Chosen answer: Church's behavior had changed after being buried. He was now violent (and working with Gage) and needed to be put down before killing anyone.
