Trivia (at around 5 mins) Towards the beginning of the film, Julie takes a picture of young Katie standing in the driveway shortly before a group picture is taken. The photo being taken appears in both Paranormal Activity (2007) and Paranormal Activity 2 (2010) as an indication that the demon has started haunting them. See more »
Goofs (at around 22 mins) Dennis gave Kristi and Katie some M&Ms the night they slept outside in the tent. One of the girls ate a blue M&M. This movie was set in 1988, but blue M&Ms weren't introduced until 1995. See more »
