Horribly dated and ineffective.

"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.

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.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: April (35 movies items)

"April 20 "I just wish that... all those people hadn't died here. I mean... ugh! A guy kills his whole family. Doesn't that bother you?" "Well, sure, but... houses don't have memories." I really don't get the low ratings this movie has. This is one of the scariest horror movies I have seen in quite some time. The atmosphere of this movie was very creepy, the acting was really good and it just had some genuinely scary scenes. Despite the low scores it's a horror classic and it's much better th"

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"The outdoor scenes of the movie were not filmed in Amityville, Long Island, but rather Toms River, New Jersey. Local police and ambulance workers played extras. Jay Anson who wrote the book "The Amityville Horror" actually wrote out a screenplay for this film only for the producers to turn it down. Eventually they found Sandor Stern and liked his take on it so he was hired for the job. While shooting the scene where Kathy is startled by the red eyes in the window, director Stuart Rosenberg wa"
