The Amityville Horror
In this latest remake of the cult classic based on Jay Anson’s horror novel, Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George play George and Kathy Lutz who cannot believe their luck when they find a beautiful new house, in the small town of Amityville, N.Y., at an affordable price.

Believing the home is haunted, the couple find a priest (Philip Baker Hall) to help them rid the place of evil spirits.

This is the movie that started it all. The Conjuring is based on one of the most disturbing cases of true-to-life paranormal investigators and demonologists Lorraine and Ed Warren from the ‘70s.

Paranormal Activity
Soon after moving into a suburban tract home, Katie (Katie Featherston) and Micah (Micah Sloat) become increasingly disturbed by what appears to be a supernatural presence. Hoping to capture evidence of it on film, they set up video cameras in the house but are not prepared for the terrifying events that follow. This is the movie that kicked off the extremely successful horror movie franchise.
