Based on a true story

The week where we made the worst possible movie choice...

What we have here is some interesting raw footage from an interview with Virginia Madsen, Academy Award nominee and star of Lionsgate's upcoming "The Haunting in Connecticut". Madsen is a pretty fantastic actress, and if you believe this footage, also a huge fan of "scary movies".

To this day I still get excited when driving on the Long Island Expressway and I pass the sign for Amityville. The 1979 movie “The Amityville Horror” made the house at 112 Ocean Ave something like a local celebrity.

I had heard that the true story behind "The Haunting in Connecticut" had been turned into a TV special at some point, but hadn't taken the time out to try and find it. A reader sent this in to me today, so here it is guys.

For whatever reason, there is always a ton of interest in horror films when they are purported to be "Based on True Events".
