Amityville Horror. I think the movie (the many versions), were more terrifying than the book itself. I read the book, all of it, and sat there thinking to myself, why, in the movies, was it more terrifying? Is it because they just exaggerated a little more for box office ratings? Was there something I may have missed?
Anyways, the reason why I put the book in here, is even though the book was really not that interesting, it inspired so many different adaptations in film. I mean, my mind plays tricks on me all the time, that is why I cannot sleep with the lights off on purpose. My mind is really overactive. So, of course, the movies will raise my blood pressure, and scare me a bit (yes, I do believe in ghosts, as I have been attacked before). But, the book really felt like a campfire scary story.
I may be wrong. It may have scared you, and if it has, AWESOME!!!
What is your favorite media on the story? Book or film. If film, which one?
