The babysitter's death scene originally had her being electrocuted while taking a bath. The scene was used later in Bride of Chucky (1998).
The store front that "blows up" was actually a chinese resturant that had closed down. It sits right next to a "Pay to Park" lot on the corner of Wabash and Van Buren, Chicago. You can even hear the detective say it in the movie when he's calling for backup.
When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
