No. You can see the eerie image of a human figure reflected in the window during the scene where Jack Holden (Ted Danson) and his mother (Celeste Holm) are walking through the house Jack shares with his two friends. It looks like a boy; but it's only the distorted reflection of a cardboard cut-out of Ted Danson that is standing behind the curtains of another window. The cut-out, or "standee," shows Danson wearing top hat and tails. The standee is a part of a storyline, involving Danson's character doing a dog food commercial, that was cut from the film. After the movie appeared on home video, viewers saw this image and created the legend that a dead boy had died in that house and returned during shooting to haunt the filmmakers. Note that the interior is only a set that was built for the film. Source: snopes.com
