My Amityville Horror

Arguably better than most of the sequels (and definitely the remake).

Daniel Lutz doesn't like people to know he's one of the children who lived through The Amityville Horror — as Jay Anson's best-selling book and subsequent smash movie called it — and yet here he is, front and center for an entire documentary on that "unfortunate gift." Be glad he gave in; My Amityville Horror is an occasionally gripping portrait of a middle-aged man still coming to terms with a terrible childhood.

The Conjuring / Insidious: Chapter 2

Scaring something in common.


Rod Lott
Modern horror's greatest hope, standing above found footage and teen-aimed remakes, is director James Wan. I first recognized the potential in 2007's Dead Silence, his underseen throwback follow-up to the breakthrough that was Saw, but 2010's Insidious made it official.
