In the days that followed, Ronald Defeo eventually confessed to methodically killing his parents and four siblings with a rifle, saying "voices" in the house drove him to the massacre. One year later, George and Kathy Lutz and their children moved into the house thinking it would be their dream home. But soon the voices began again. Sleepless nights. Numbing cold. Visions of a murdered little girl. Then George began to do what the voices told him... 28 days after moving in, the Lutzes abandoned the residence - lucky to escape with their lives. 30 years after the shocking real-life events that inspired one of the most popular horror stories of all time, revisit the house that started it all: The Amityville Horror.

    • Rated: PG-13 \
    • Studio: Universal Studios
    • DVD Release Date: October 4, 2005
    • Run Time: 129m
    • Synopsis:
      Directed by Oscar® winner Sydney Pollack, whose classic thrillers Three Days of the Condor, Absence of Malice and The Firm have set the standard for the genre, The Interpreter stars Academy Award® winners Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn in a suspenseful thriller of international intrigue set inside the political corridors of the United Nations and on the streets of New York. Kidman stars as African-born U.N. interpreter Silvia Broome, who inadvertently overhears a death threat against an African head of state scheduled to address the United Nation's General Assembly. Realizing she's become a target of the assassins as well, Silvia's desperate to thwart the plot...if only she can survive long enough to get someone to believe her. Sean Penn is Tobin Keller, the federal agent charged with protecting the interpreter, who nonetheless suspects she may not be telling the whole truth. Silvia and Tobin, by nature, see life from different points of view: one, a U.N. interpreter, believes in the power and sanctity of words; the other, a Secret Service agent, believes in reading people based on their behavior, no matter what is said. In the right hallway, at the right time, all it takes is a whisper to tip the balance of power.
