When George Lutz (Ryan Reynolds) and his wife, Kathy (Melissa George), find a beautiful new house in the small town of Amityville, N.Y., they think the place is too good to be true. After they move in with their kids, they find out the cheap price tag is thanks to the house's sordid history: The former tenant murdered his family after supposedly being possessed by the devil. Believing the home is haunted, the couple find a priest (Philip Baker Hall) to help them rid the place of evil spirits.

    ages 15+ | Not Worth Your Time

    This came before some of the more recent, more egregious examples of horror movie remakes, but it's an early indicator of what we had to expect. The immensely likable and always miscast Ryan Reynolds stars in the James Brolin role as the patriarch in a family that have just moved into a new house that -- surprise, surprise -- was the former site of some messed up stuff. So "The Shining," lite version. Trite, cliched, and way too slick and without anything to really distinguish it from other films in the genre -- let alone the original 1979 version. Reynolds even grows his best Brolin beard. Skip it. Watch the original or "The Conjuring" instead.
