Trivia
Miramax/Dimension had paid $4 million for the rights to distribute the movie in North America and some other territories, but then shelved it for more than two years. The company gave the film a US theatrical release at Christmas 2004 after heavy editing to secure a PG-13 rating.

Goofs
(Around 23 minutes into the movie) Regina comes down the stairs and sees that her dad has found a secret room under the stairs. Her father comes out holding a picture apparently very interested. Regina asks her father, "What's that?" looking at the space under the stairs. We then see a still frame where just barely, you can see Regina's father still in the space looking at the picture even though he had just stepped out of that area.

Q
What are the differences between the PG-13 and Unrated Version?
A
In the States a PG-13 Version of this horror movie was released in cinemas. This version was released on the US-DVD alongside the unrated version. Aside several, in the sum massive, plot cuts, which are certainly owed to a "movie theater-friendly" runtime of near 90 minutes, more than 40 pure censorship-edits have been made to secure the rating. In addition to that, this cut version was darkened, so that in scenes you cannot remove/change without causing problems in the narrative you cannot make out injuries and the like that easily. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
