* In the remake, the other side is portrayed as a mirror image of our world, but everything is composed of writhing masses of lost souls, clawing and moaning at nothing and everything.

** Spielberg/Hooper has several such quiet scenes that give the GenreSavvy audience plenty of time to anticipate something horrible happening. Diane knocking on the bedroom room. Robby hearing the clown hit the floor while Diane is taking a bath. The [[FantasticScience meter recording spirit activity]] activates and goes [[ReadingsAreOffTheScale off the scale]] while the technician is listening to music and drawing in a sketchpad.

** Also, look at the bottom-left chair. Two of its legs are resting on air. The chairs are not just stacked, there is a force that is still actively holding them together.

** And done all in one shot, while the camera pans away for a few seconds. Impressive.

* A bit of EnforcedMethodActing, said to have been Spielberg's idea. Some of the corpses in the final scene were ''real.'' Tangina's expository monologue, detailing what was going on and what they were up against, never, ever fails to chill to the bone.

* Don't forget the very, very end of the film, where the theme music stops and turns into creepy children's laughter, which continues even after the title fades. Not horrifying, but it's definitely unsettling.

** Not some of them were real. ''All'' of them were, as using real skeletons was cheaper than plastic.
