  • Victor used Deputy Rick as a human shield when Deputy Cory Schneiderman fired a rocket launcher.
  • In the second film, its revealed that Reverend Zombie had a small business going on with Shawn and the boat was one of his own.
  • In the second film, Reverend Zombie stated that Marybeth's father, Sampson, her uncle, Bob, and Trent are the boys responsible for causing the fire.
    • He believes that if Victor kills Bob and Trent, his soul would be at peace.
      • Marybeth later revealed that Bob was Sampson's best friend, and her real uncle died of leukemia when she was 12-years old.
  • In the first film, when trying to get Victor Crowley out of the burning house, Thomas didn't know he was leaning again the other side of the door when he hatchet embedded into his face.
    • Because of this, Victor Crowley became a ghost, killing anyone who sets foot on the swamp where he lives, while searching for his dad.
  • In the second film, Reverend Zombie stated that Thomas Crowley had an affair with his wife's nurse after she was diagnosed with stomach cancer.
    • Moments before dying, Shyann Crowley placed a curse on the child conceived by Lena from the affair. Months later, she dies after giving birth to the deformed Victor Crowley.
  • In the third film, Amanda Fowler stated that Victor Crowley is a repeater, set to relive the night he died, looking for his father and that he will keep coming back unless he gets what he wants: his father.
    • She also stated that her father, Sampson Dunston, was the one that came up with the idea to start the fire many years ago and tried to get him to deliver Thomas Crowley's ashes to Victor over the past several years, only to be dismissed numerous times. But, since he's dead and she's Sampson's bloodline, only she can put an end to Victor Crowley.
      • This is proven when Marybeth smashed the urn on Victor Crowley that gets him covered in his father's ashes and causes him to melt. Then Marybeth blew him apart with one of the SWAT team's gun, ending his massacre.
