Niles is lying in bed with his grandmother comforting him. In the close-up shots of his face, his hair is hanging in bangs in his face, but in long shots, his hair has been pushed back away from his forehead. See more »

This voiceover from the broadcast television version (which hasn't aired in years... all recent showings show the true, theatrical version) is said in the final shot, by Niles, as follows:
"Holland, the game's over. We can't play the game anymore. But when the sheriff comes, I'll ask him if we can play it in our new home."
This voiceover immiediately follows Winnie saying "Niles, wash up now." This voiceover, however, cuts off something else that is said by Winnie. In the theatrical version, this voiceover is nonexistant, and Winnie says "Niles, wash up now. Time for lunch." and that is the last line of dialogue spoken in the movie. It is obvious that this ending was especially done for television so that the "bad guy doesn't get away with it." The theatrical version, without this voiceover, implies that Niles never does get caught.
I'm a thirtysomething who saw this movie as a kid, and it still ranks among the scariest movies that I've ever seen. I've not had luck locating it on video, but, if you find it, check it out. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. This is one scary movie that you're not likely to forget.
