"What do you want from us? Goddamnit, this is MY house!"

Normally I enjoy classic horror movies because of their inventiveness and their predisposition to be quite terrifying at times. The Amityville Horror strives to be original and scary, but at every opportunity it fails quite astonishingly. The film contains none of the elements that make a good horror movie. Instead of being gr... read more

Day Nineteen // 31 Day Horror Challenge

Nothing I ever seen before to be quite honest, not very exciting. Certainly not rubbish but really slow in parts, so boring in fact that I just wanted to skip them, as they were that slow.

31 Days of Horror (Halloween 2015) (45 movies items)

"October 10: Classic haunted house story! Not much else to say. This movie is probably the reason I love classic haunted house stories so much. FAVORITE SCENE: Every exterior shot of the house at night, especially when it was lit by the hellish red light."
