A millionaire offers $10,000 to five people who agree to be locked in a large, spooky, rented house overnight with him and his wife.
The large grosses for this film were noticed by Alfred Hitchcock. This led him to create his own low-budget horror film - Psycho (1960).
Would you adore me as much if I were poor? No, all you want to be is a lovely widow.
Frederick Loren announces at the start of the challenge that if any of the contestants dies, the deceased's heirs will get his/her $10,000. Later, he says that if any of the five contestants dies, the total $50,000 will be split evenly among the survivors. However, the initial statement is spoken directly to the film's audience, is not part of the actual plot line, and therefore, does not really contradict the terms subsequently described to the genuine characters.
The end title credits list "Skeleton - By Himself"
The VHS release of the movie cuts out a small scene when Watson Pritchard shows everybody the stain in the ceiling and he says to them 'see that stain? Blood.'
