* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The fake diary that the main character worked on for several months mentions witch burnings in Salem. Not a single witch was burned during the Salem Witch Trials, they were for the most part hung with the only exception being Giles Corey, who was crushed to death with rocks. What makes it worse is that the audience is supposed to see Mrs. Tingle as a horrid person for only giving the main character a C for something she worked so hard on, but considering she made such a big and easily rectified mistake, the whole film falls apart. Really, a "C" grade was generous.

-->'''Leigh Ann:''' Why are you like this? Why are you so bitter and angry? Why do you want to destroy me?
-->'''Ms. Tingle:''' I don't want to destroy you I want to teach.

You went to high school here, now you teach here, and you're going to die here. And you resent anyone who has a future, anyone who's going to get out and have a life!
