All of which were the writters....

I've read the book and have the movie on tape from when they first showed it on Fox back in 1992.
I thought the book was a helluva lot better than the movie, but I'm sure they ahd to edit the movie due to being aired on public television.


I've learned you can't make someone love you, all you can do is beat the crap out of them until they agree to.

I read the book a few weeks ago and the movie just aired last night on the Sci-Fi channel. I was quite disapointed with the movie. It was more like a short summary of events I guess because it was made for TV and they couldnt' show the scary stuff. I actually live only 5 minutes away from this actual house and got a really freaky picture last month! The book was awesome though!

The book was pretty good. Wasn't overly impressed with the movie, although it WAS made-for-tv, so what more can be said. I'm not sure if I believe it's an actualy account of true events, or if some of it was fabricated to help sales.

We drove by the house and took a few pictures last month. The first picture we took, had several orbs and several freaky faces clear in the window. Then the next pictures had a few orbs in different places and then the last few had nothing at all in the pictures. It was just really bizarre.

Thanks. I also enjoyed the book more then the movie, but I did think for a FOX movie it wasn't too bad.

I have never seen where you can buy this movie and they don't have it in the video stores since it was a made for TV movie. You should check with the Sci-Fi Channel schedule because they air this movie alot. They actually aired this movie last Sunday. The movie was ok but the book was really good. I'd definately look for the book if you get the chance because it gives so much more details and information that the movie can't show. The book is called, The Haunted One Family's Nightmare by Robert Curran

The best scary book EVER is The People in the Attic, by Doretta Johnson...I would absolutely recommend it! :)
