Revealing mistake: When the chair moves across the kitchen floor, Craig T. Nelson goes to investigate it (after it has stopped moving). He goes up to the chair and flips it over. If you look closely, Craig almost hits the camera with the chair's legs. You can tell this has happened because the camera moves up very quickly and Craig looks straight at the camera crew with very big guilty eyes. This is more easily visible on the widescreen version of the film. (00:33:30)
On their final night in the house after saving Carol-Anne from "the other side" The ghosts attack the Freeling family once more. Coffins start to pop up out of the ground. The father comes home from work to see the pandemonium. He finds out that his boss had only moved the headstones of the graveyard and not the bodies and that's why the house is haunted. The mother and children escape the house and it implodes in on it's self. The Freeling family go to stay in a motel, making sure to push the TV outside.

Carol Anne Freeling: They're here.
Trivia: While filming the toy clown attacking Robbie, the clown's arms were wrapped tightly around Oliver's neck. He immediately said he couldn't breathe but Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper both thought that he was ad-libbing. When Spielberg saw Oliver's face turning purple, he realised that he really was being asphyxiated and ran over to remove the arms from his neck.
Question: Why was only the Freelings' house sucked into the vortex? Since it was discovered that the developer only moved the headstones but left the bodies, shouldn't other houses that were also built over the cemetery have also been dragged in?
