Thought I would post this because the last paragraph was so funny! :haha:

Melissa George, who stars in the upcoming remake The Amityville Horror, told SCI FI Wire that she didn't have much trouble getting into character when the story called for her to be scared. "I've been creeped out a lot," George said in an interview on the set. "It was just great to use it in the character. ... And just the thought of her husband literally going crazy at this point and what is going on, I really kind of get into that role to the point where I get quite freaked out. And by the time they call out, "Action," I'm ready to deliver."

The Australian actress is best known in the U.S. for her role as Lauren Reed, the duplicitous wife of CIA agent Michael Vaughn (Michael Vartan), on the spy drama Alias. In the film, George plays Kathy Lutz, a recently remarried mother of three who moves into a haunted house with her family and begins noticing disturbing changes in her husband, played by Ryan Reynolds.

George admitted she has always been easily scared by horror films, but starring in one is helping her to get over her fears. "They really get me," she said. "Now I'm realizing the whole technique of a horror film. Like, sound is really important and the quiet before the scare is really important. So now I'm getting used to it."

Still, George said she intends to screen the finished film on her own ahead of time, to make sure she isn't too jumpy when she sees it with an audience. "I said to the producers, 'You'd better show me this film before the premiere, because I can't be in the audience of my own film shedding my skin,'" George said. "That's kind of wrong. So I said, 'You'd better prepare me for that.'" The Amityville Horror opens in theaters April 15, 2005.

The Amityville Story is much scarier. The one about the people that lived in that house and the son became posessed and killed his family. Much more terrifying. I think it was a 70s film.
