Although several contemporary reviews list the servants' surname as"Slykes," the onscreen credit reads "Styles." Closing credits differ slightly from the opening credits, listing actress Carol Craig as "Carolyn Craig." The closing credits also list "Skeleton by Himself." Modern sources, including the autobiography of producer-director William Castle, describe a gimmick used in several of House on Haunted Hill's first-run screenings, in which a phony skeleton was rigged to "fly" over the audience at a key moment in the film. Castle claimed that he named the skelton and the complicated wiring necessary for its appearance "Emergo." In 1999 Warner Bros. remade House on Haunted Hill, starring Geoffrey Rush and Famke Janssen, directed by William Malone.
