Did You Know?


"God is in his Holy Temple" is a quote from Psalm 11.


Old Indian: Car's still angry, eh?
Steve Freeling: Angry? That car's pissed!


In the scene where Carol-Anne is drying her dolls hair, Carol-Anne has wet hair, later in the scene when Steve tells Diane she never wanted Carol-Anne, Carol-Anne peers round the bathroom door with dry hair, yet earlier in the scene Diane says to Steve that she should dry Carol-Anne's hair, this clearly indicates different times when the scene was filmed.

Crazy Credits

In the credits, the words "Cavern and Mountaintop set materials by Foam-Tec" do not match with the rest of the closing credits. They seem to have been added on later.

Alternate Versions

During post production, at least 15 minutes were cut from the film during the final editing stages, and some of the remaining scenes were re-arranged chronologically. Scenes rumored to be cut included: 1. A line mentioning "Dana," (the eldest daughter from the original film) being away at college. 2. A scene involving JoBeth Williams, Craig T. Nelson and a floating toaster oven in their kitchen. 3. A scene in which the "Rev. Kane" appears at the house again and is confronted by "Tangina" right before she is about to leave after visiting "Diane" (Zelda Rubinstein was said to be very upset that this sequence was cut, as she felt it was one of her best scenes). 4. A longer "other side" sequence at the end featuring the family's battle with the Beast. 5. Longer versions of existing scenes featuring additional dialogue.
