Trivia

Stephen King said he wanted the series to be the Moby Dick of haunted house movies. Something big, scary and hard to forget. He also wanted the mansion to look user-friendly and not forbidding, including cozy interiors with warm and inviting colours. More than 400 carpenters worked on the sets between May and October 2000. The sets were so vast some of the cast got lost on them. See more »

Goofs

After Annie falls and hurts her head, the bandage that is placed on her head is white in one scene and has a blood spot and back to clean in the next. It alternates several times between scenes from clean and the blood spot. See more »

Loved it either way
2 February 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Though most people did not appreciate this movie due to lack of insight, I still found it interesting and mentally exercising. I do agree that some of the down time should have been used to go into depth on the characters but it also makes me use my mind to fill in the blanks which could make the movie even more fun and eccentric. Stephen King knows how to tap into peoples minds. This movie didn't scare me or make me jump at the time I was watching it. It was a few days later when I actually started to think about it and analyze it that it struck a cord. It makes you think about the possibilities and consequences. Well all in all I liked this mini series and though I do think they could have done better, it was still mentally captivating.
