Haunted Houses for Sale - Amityville and The Haunted MansionAct now, kids! If you have the scratch, you could end up landing yourself the ULTIMATE in horror collectibles: the actual home from The Amityville Horror and another house that’s a replica of Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Read on for details.

According to CNN the owners of the home made famous in the spooky 1970s film The Amityville Horror are dramatically slashing the asking price on their Toms River, New Jersey, colonial, which was used for exteriors in the film. The decision wasn’t triggered by demonic activity, however. Apparently, another frightening “D” word was to blame. “My husband and I are getting a divorce,” said Odalys Fragoso, who bought the house with her husband, Jose Fragoso, in 2001. “It’s not that the house is haunted or anything. We had wonderful times in that house.” The couple purchased the house for $795,000. Originally listed last year at $1.45 million, the four-bedroom, three-bath home is now going for $955,000 — a bargain, according to the agent. “If there were a curse on it, I wouldn’t be in it,” joked Donna Walesiewicz, the broker selling the 3,370-square-foot residence. “It is what it is, a nice old stately home.” Click the link for more.

Theme Park Connection, a company that specializes in selling rare Disney collectibles, has posted the 10,000-square-foot home in Duluth, GA, for $873,000 on eBay, says The Hollywood Reporter. The four-story, seven-bedroom, six-bath mansion was custom built to the dimensions and architectural structure of Disney’s ride attraction. Owner and designer Mark Hurt, who is also a Disney contractor, included a matching children’s playhouse, a hot tub, a two-story library, an elevator shaft, and in-law/nanny suite. Hurt even used the same foundry as Walt Disney to make the hand-welded iron railings of the balconies. One of the bathrooms is supposed to give that “haunted” effect. When the faucet turns on, the lights flicker and dim as a skeleton appears in the mirror, and the ride’s music and voiceover echoes on for a “spooky” time.

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

Published

on

Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

Synopsis:
A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

Published

on

The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
