Ryan Reynolds is famous for many things: NS Deadpool film, his great sense of humour, and his high-profile relationship with Blake Lively. But what some people may not know about the actor, is that in 2005, he was the star of a film that is considered by many to be one of the worst remakes in horror history, Amityville Horror.
Directed by Stuart Rosenberg in 1979 and Andrew Douglas in 2005, Amityville Horror The film revolves around newlyweds, George (James Broslin / Ryan Reynolds) and Kathy Lutz (Margot Kidder / Melissa George), who move with Kathy’s children into a mansion on Long Island for a suspiciously low price. They discovered the benefit was its murder history. And although Lutz can accept this, they soon discover that they cannot accept the demonic forces looting the property. Demons like Jodie, the demon pig (1979) / Hatred-like shape (2005), ravaged the Lutz family, in which George had to go through a particularly difficult time. Possessed, he begins to hear voices saying that he has killed his own wife and children. The same voices are said to have caused the people before, Ronald DeFeo to kill people his family.
True crime fans would recognize the name DeFeo, if not the name of Lutz. Like The Amityville Horror The film depicts, actually, a Ronald DeFeo who shot his family at their home in Amityville, NY. The story goes that, on a November morning in 1974, 23-year-old DeFeo walked into a nearby bar and yelled, “You have to help me! I think my mother and father were shot! Not to mention his 4 siblings, the police suddenly intervened when they discovered 6 dead bodies in the house at 112 Ocean Avenue. DeFeo shot them in their sleep; although this is not the story he originally presented.
At first, the hitman claimed that an assassin had committed the murder, however, when that story was disproved, DeFeo confessed to doing it himself (before changing his story much). time). Although his attorney came up with a crazy defense – claiming DeFeo heard the voices of his family plotting against him – DeFeo was found guilty of six counts of first-degree murder. two and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Skeptics are not convinced, however, that the house is responsible. And it looks like George and Kathy Lutz played some part in this story.
Again, like Amityville Horror Go, the Lutz family is about to move into the house 112 Ocean Avenue. They also learned about its history, decided to buy the house anyway, and leaving after paranormal events became a common thing. These experiences are recounted in Jay Anson’s 1977 book, which inspired the series. As it is written, the priest who blessed the house was the first to encounter the devil when he heard a masculine voice tell him “Get out!”
Not long after, the Lutz family experienced horrors similar to strange smells, inexplicable chills and loud noises This will help them to wake up at night. Like his on-screen colleague, George is said to regularly wake up at 3:15 a.m. (the time DeFeo committed his murder) and see his wife turn into an old woman. The morning after witnessing her take off, the whole family ran away from home, and as the movie goes, they never returned to claim their property.
Of course, Lutz’s story was questioned, with many believing it to be a hoax to get money. But that’s not the point when it comes to judging the film’s success or shortcomings. Although the original Amityville Horror far beyond the reboot in terms of commercial success (remaining the highest-grossing indie film until 1990), it generated mostly negative reviews from critics. As it stands, the 1979 film has a score of 30% on Rotten Tomatoes and a score of 6.2 on IMDb; only slightly better than the 2005 reboot which had a Tomatometer score of 23% and an IMDb rating of 6.0.
A popular Rotten Tomato . Review says it all, “When the first movie begs the question, “why was this movie made”, the remake raises the question, “why is this movie being remade? “” Indeed, it doesn’t add much to the original story. Both share a basic plot, although the priest plays a larger role in the original and the history of the house is shown more in the remake. The original is slower (putting it down to time) and disturbing, while the remake is fast and… just as unsettling, but in a much less subtle way. Sure, if there’s one thing the 2005 movie doesn’t lack, it’s fear jumps cheap. And while these fix the pacing issues of the original, they don’t do much more than wake the viewer up. It’s an essential feature to its credit.
Aside from these drawbacks, critics have a lot to say about Reynolds in the film. Unfortunately, it looks like the actor was wrongly spotted here. A newcomer to the horror genre, Reynolds has found success with comedies, Van Wilder, and Rules before joining Amityville Horror, and has since been wildly successful with the subversive superhero comedy, Deadpool, in which he is perfectly cast. Clearly, comedy is his thing. And while no one can blame an actor for acting so well, they can call it bad acting when they see it. That is, Ryan Reynolds in the second half of NS Amityville Horror.
While he did a pretty good job portraying the kind and funny George in the first half, his transformation into the mean and unintentionally abusive George is hilarious. And red contact lenses don’t help. Reynolds also spends most of the film going topless, which, while not benefiting the story in any way, is at least pleasing to the viewer. Even reviewers have good words for those A-shaped abs.
Rockstar Games released an official apology for the numerous problems Grand Theft Auto Trilogy has had with bringing the original games back.
