The Amityville Horror

Based on the supposedly true bestseller, the 1979 film starring James Brolin and Margot Kidder -- about a family that moves into their dream home in Long Island, only to discover that it is haunted -- delivers chills with its eerie children's chorus soundtrack and '70s cinema verite-style approach to horror, from the swarming flies and ghostly voices yelling "Get out!" to bleeding walls and Jodie the red-eyed, invisible pig. Stay away from the 2005 update starring Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George, which misses the mark at every turn.
