One of the early VHS issues of "House By the Cemetery" in America got several of the film's reels out of order, further confusing the already erratic story. See more »
Fishing line can be seen attached to the bat that attacks Lucy in the cellar. Also, when Norman stabs the bat with a pair of scissors, blood comes out of the bat in places other than where the scissors penetrated it. See more »
Mae, time to go home and remember your manners. Now that Bob is staying with us, be sure to treat him like a Freudstein. For other guests are surely destined to drop in.

I relize it isn't the kid's fault, but I am here to tell you the voice he is dubbed with is so annoying that it almost ruins the entire flick. Can't a more appropiate voice be found, one that sounds like a real child and not one of those really wealthy ones. Other than that this isn't that bad of a flick, but it definately has some flaws. The movie seems to point this way and that, there are a ton of questions like who is the killer, has the father been in the town before, who is the babysitter really, and others. Unfortunately, only one of these questions is answered in this flick and it is the killer. The rest goes unanswered and where as the unanswered questions work in "The Beyond" here you wonder why it is brought up in the first place if you are never going to find out. Also to all the people that talk about the baby sitter wiping up the blood, I do believe the mother thought the blood came from the dreaded bat attack. One thing I can't believe though is that this movie has a higher rating than "Zombie". Zombie just seems to me to be a more complete movie.
