"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.

"10/27/14 Directed by: Stuart Rosenberg Extremely long and tedious with absolutely zero payoff and the attempts at scares are barely coherent. "

"Kathy Lutz: "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?" George: "Well, sure, but... houses don't have memories." "

" This movie is pretty damn awful, but on a sidenote, James Brolin looks a LOT like Christian Bale. It's scary how closely they resemble each other. And uh yeah just don't watch this movie because it's hilariously bad. "

Leffatykin arvostelut (108 movies items)

"(09.03.2008) Eräänä marraskuun yönä vuonna 1974 osoitteessa 112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, Long Island, New York, 23-vuotias Ronald DeFeo Jr. otti kiväärin ja ampui äitinsä, isänsä ja neljä sisarustaan sänkyihinsä näiden nukkuessa. Oikeudessa DeFeo sanoi talon äänten käskeneen häntä tekemään murhat. Noin vuosi myöhemmin George ja Kathy Lutz muuttivat jälkimmäisen aiemmasta avioliitosta jääneiden lasten kanssa samaiseen taloon, jossa he ehtivät asua vajaan kuukauden, e"

True Ghost Stories (8 movies items)

" Cheerfully marketed as a documentary-style true story (despite fabrication claims), Stuart Rosenberg’s 1979 paranormal classic chronicled the experiences of the Lutzes – a US family of five who moved to Amityville, Long Island in December 1975. Only problem being their new, suspiciously cheap home at 112 Ocean Avenue had, 13 months previously, been the scene of the vicious DeFeo murders, where six members of the same family were slaughtered in their sleep. Cue a series of terrifying parano"
