So today's movie is The Amityville Horror (the newer one with Ryan Reynolds). I had no intention of watching this today, but it was on Scifi and I was far too lazy to find something else. I actually like this movie a lot. It had its fair share of creepiness along with some suspenseful scenes. Also, it was the first movie that I realized that Ryan Reynolds was gorgeous and that I had a creepy obsession for beards.
So quick summary: A family finds a huge amazing house that was way below market value and decide to buy it to get a new start blah blah blah. After only a few days, they notice some weird shit going on and the stepfather starts going cray cray and hearing voices and such. Anyway, through the neighborhood library, Melissa George realizes that not only did the family that lived there before got murdered, but a guy in a fedora and trench coat used to torture Native Americans in the basement (gotta read that fine print).
So anyway, I think the movie is pretty good. I'm kind of a nerd and did some research on the house after I watched the movie. Though the legend of the house is true (guy killed his family and second family that moved in heard voices and moved out within 28 days), there isn't any proof of an Native American torture fun house and there is currently a family living there that has had no problems. I actually feel back because they had to change the name of the street that the house is located because so many weirdos were trying to come visit.
This is a photo I found that is said to have been taken of one of the ghosts who inhabit the house (http://www.angelsghosts.com/amityville_horror_ghost_picture). The house was checked out by two different paranormal investigators and they seemed to think that there might be entities in the home.
