* Got a rare F grade on UsefulNotes/CinemaScore, one of only twenty two films to get such a rating since the organizations founding in 1979.

Added DiffLines:

* MissingTrailerScene: The scene where Miles pukes up a spider is only seen in the trailers, not the movie (unless one views the alternate ending).


* DuelingWorks: With ''Series/TheHauntingOfBlyManor'', another adaptation of the same story that came out later in the year.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: When the film was first announced in 2016, it was going to be directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and was titled ''Haunted''. Creator/RoseLeslie was cast in the lead role and Alfre Woodward was also part of the cast. At this point, the film's script differed greatly from the final product (Steven Spielberg withdrew from the film because so many changes were made to the script).

* TroubledProduction: The film began in 2016 as a passion project for Creator/StevenSpielberg and was intended as one of the first releases of Spielberg's new Amblin Partners studio.

Burns turned in a page-one rewrite that radically altered the project from what Amblin had envisioned. Amblin fired Burns and director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, even though a third of the movie's $17 million budget had already been spent. Universal kept the film on TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment until they dumped it into theaters in [[DumpMonths January 2020]], to poor critical reception.
