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

Initial Thought: I feel like a franchise. So I decided on the Amityville series since they have a new one coming up soon. I hear most of them are awful besides this and the remake. The new one looks like it should be good too. Anyways let's see what this is all about.

Characters/Acting: I adore Margot Kidder. She was such a prominent actress in the 70s. I swear Josh Brolin looks just ... read more

Movies I Think Should Be Adapted into TV Series (20 movies items)

"Picture the 1st season of American Horror Story with multiple storylines interwoven together except it wouldn't be an anthology series and season 2 would be a continuation of whatever happened in the first."

Movies viewed in 2017 (338 movies items)

"Horror story based allegedly on true events about a family who buy the perfect home and find the place is possessed by an evil demon. James Bolin and Margot Kidder star as the couple in a film that has plenty to shock but looks very tame compared to modern horrors. The music by Lalo Schifrin is the creepiest part of this tall tale. A series of sequels and reboots have appeared since but this is perfect for those who like their horror a little less horrific."
