MaddWolf Hope85 - Yes, this is an old fashioned ghost story, built from the ground up to push buttons of childhood terror.

Drezzy80 - Damn. This was fun. I didn't like Insidious too much, to be honest, and this is from the same guy (who also did the original Saw and Dead Silence, for what it's worth), and all the positive reviews I've seen about it kinda soured me on the idea (particularly since the best horror usually receives mixed reviews because most mainstream critics don't actually "get" it), but oh holy shit did this movie impress me. This joins the ranks of the first two [REC] movies, The Collector, Cabin in the Woods, Trick R' Treat, and Sinister as my favorites of the past decade. It built the tension thoroughly, the ending was the closing of the chapter while hinting at the opening of another (this movie was supposedly an "untold" case of paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren's, and they were the pair that investigated the Amityville house and determined it to be haunted), and the direction was magnificent. Even the cast was good (outside of the younger girls playing the daughters, but not every child actress can be Chloe Grace-Moretz), and helps cement my love of Patrick Wilson as a horror star. He has this certain "every-man" quality to him, the kind of guy that you'd have as a neighbor and get together for barbecues or football games, and the way he calmly sells the growing tension and insanity of his situations sells me on it. He's similar to Ethan Hawke, really, only much more sympathetic for some reason.
