Location: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Date of Encounter: 1980 or 1981
When I was about ten years old I lived in a large old house built in the 1920's with my parents and brothers. I was alone in the den on the second floor of the house watching TV and my grandmother was downstairs in the living room reading. I started to watch That's Incredible. One of the stories that night was about the real Amityville horror house. The current owners took the camera crew on a tour of the home showing off the different rooms of the home that, according to the Amityville movies, had strange activities occurring in them. As the tour continued they came to the "Red room" the room that supposedly bleeds blood from the walls. The point of the tour was to refute the claims that the movie made about the home being possessed. While in the Red room the owner said something to the effect of "this is the Red room, the walls don't bleed blood, nothing strange has ever happened here". At that point the couch that I was lying on (which was red) began to shake uncontrollably. Not just a tremble, but a shake that lifted the couch off the floor bouncing it from leg to leg for about ten seconds. Probably the weirdest thing that has ever happened to me. Very, very scary. It never happened again and to this day I don't know why it happened. Nothing ever happened in that house again to scare me like that.
