Trivia: An alternate ending that more closely follows the book ending was shot, but it was not well-received by the test audience. In the alternate ending, Billy is angry with his wife but because he blames her for the accident and for not believing him when he tells her about the gypsy curse, not because she's having an affair with Dr Mike. Billy's daughter does inadvertently eat the cursed pie and Billy, knowing she was going to die, also ate the pie, thereby committing suicide. The production company removed the alternate ending and went with the ending where Billy gets his wife and the doctor to eat the pie.

Question: When Richie wakes up Frank, he tells him about the gypsies that are camping in a specific area and to give him a call the moment he sees them. Since Richie already knew where the gypsies were at, why use Frank at all?

Chosen answer: Because the Gypsies were not there, they were away. He wanted Frank to sit and watch for their return and let him know they were back so he didn't need to sit and do it himself.
