Stars:  2 / 10

A failed remake. It's more akin to a bad reboot of The Shining. OK effects, but lazy acting, pathetic and predictable writing, and no quality scares.


Director: Andrew Douglas
Year: 2005
Main Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Melissa George, Jesse James, Jimmy Bennet, Chlöe Grace Moretz, Isabel Connor


Whether one believes the "haunted house/possession" parts of the Amityville Horror or not, this film is totally insensitive to the true-crime elements of the story (demons or no demons, 6 people really were murdered there.) After sitting through this craptastic movie, my heart went out to anyone even distantly related to the Defeo family... and yes, even the Lutzs. *wince*
