Continuity mistake: When looking at the dog from the bedroom window, there are 2 windows in the room facing the dog. When we see the window from outside only 1 window is lit up, despite both being in the same room. (00:11:30)

Factual error: The moving truck that transports the Perron family's belongings didn't exist in 1971. It is a 1973 model or newer.


Visible crew/equipment: When they are performing the exorcism at the end, there is often a white marker by the rear right (viewer left) chair leg.

Other mistake: The clocks as we learn later in the film stop at 03:07 due to that being the time the witch died. However, the grandfather clock we see for the first time has stopped at 03:07. We then see it stop at 03:07 the next night too. However the minute hand is in a different spot to when it first stopped - it should have stopped at precisely the same point. (00:13:05 - 00:18:50)

Factual error: The morning after the exorcism, the headlights on all the cars outside of the house are still on. There is no way car batteries from the 1970s would have lasted all night.

Other mistake: When we first see the Warrens' home, the title card spells it Warren's. As it's the home of more than one Warren, the apostrophe should be at the end. (00:15:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When Cindy has her mom play the music box to see Rory, at the end the little girl jumps at her mother to scare her and jostles the camera. (00:00:25)


Continuity mistake: When Lorraine sees Rory in the music box mirror, the items on the wall should be reversed, since it's a mirror, but they are not. When she turns around to look, everything is in the exact same position.


Continuity mistake: When Rory throws the teddy onto the table its position changes when he runs outside to see why Cindy is screaming. (00:15:00)

Lorraine Warren: You have a lot of spirits in here, but there is one I'm most worried about because it is so hateful.

More quotes from The Conjuring

Trivia: The "Annabelle" doll seen in the opening sequence of the film was actually a regular "Raggedy Ann" doll in the real-life story that inspired the scene. The doll was redesigned to its current, much more grotesque form for several reasons: First, to make it more cinematic. And second, to avoid legal troubles with the copyright holders on Raggedy Ann. The filmmakers and Lorraine Warren also stated that they were interested in re-designing the Annabelle doll because they were afraid if they used a real Raggedy Ann doll, it would frighten children who might own them.

More trivia for The Conjuring

Question: It's made clear at the beginning of the film that a demonic force is something that has never walked the earth in human form. Yet The Witch did walk the Earth in human form, but still has all the powers of a demon and Lorraine even calls it a "demonic presence." So can humans become demons when they die or did I miss something?


Answer: The demon takes control of the witch. The witch likely opened a portal for the demon who attached to the witch. As such, the demon still hasn't walked the earth itself.
