Trivia: The paintings of Mrs. Simmons are actually two different women. Don't know who the first one is (the one with the shears and blood), but the second one, when Luther brings everyone with him to the mansion, is actually taken from a painting of a mother and daughter entitled "Mrs. Fiske Warren and her daughter Rachel."

Continuity mistake: When Don Knotts (Luther) is in the Simmons' mansion, his flashlight moves when the light from the flashlight does not. One time, while leaving a room, his flashlight points away from him, but the light actually shines on him.
