The 'creepy voice' effect, according to the film historian who did the commentary, was done simply by having the child actor record his lines again, and dub them over his original voice.

The film script was written simultaneously with the original novel, but production was put on hold when new studio management worried the film would be seen as anti-Catholic. Later, to recoup their investment, the studio sent the script to its UK subsidiary where it could be produced at a lower budget, which forced a rewrite to make the script 'British' again.

Even when the movie was completed and sent to theaters, the studio hesitated to schedule a release. It was an accident when one theater put on the movie to fill a gap. Fortunately, it proved to be popular!
