When the group first visits the old house and enters the basement there's a light bulb flickering. When you look closer you can see that it's a new model without the old wire type which used to cause the disconnection and therefore the flickering. Which means the flickering light you see is fake.

The US theatrical release was cut in order to receive a PG-13 classification (the film was originally rated R). The filmmakers cut stronger moments of horror violence and gore from the film. This footage was later restored in the Unrated Cut. See more »
A few friends and I had the pleasure of screening this movie yesterday and my summary title of the review is kind of the first thing that was said as we walked out of the screening. Don't pay it, don't see it. It was more comical than scary in my opinion, I think the movie could have gone a handful of better directions to actually be considered a horror movie. The CGI dog was pretty bad. The premise was good, but really didn't go anywhere. I wanted to like it but I expected horror, not finding ourselves laughing among ourselves. The acting was OK, seemed forced in some areas. I did like to see another movie filmed in Cleveland.
