Editorial Reviews

From Michael Bay, the producer of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," comes the true story of Amityville. In November 1974, a family of six was brutally murdered. Now, a year later, an unsuspecting young couple, George (Ryan Reynolds, "Blade: Trinity," "The In-Laws") and Kathy Lutz (Melissa George, TV's "Alias"), and their children move into the house that was the site of the horrific event and is now haunted by a murderous presence. What follows is 28 days of unimaginable terror. With demonic visions of the dead and relentless screams of terror, this is the haunted house story that isn't just a movie - it's real.

There's alot of bad reviews for this movie, and I'm not too sure why. Yes it isn't original, quit complaining, it's a remake and it isn't trying to be original. It's better than the original in my opinion, this is one of the most disturbing horror movies to come out in a long time. The atmosphere is extremely dark and terrifying, the visuals are INCREDIBLE, the images are some of the most disturbing you will see in a long time. It's new, and that shouldn't take anything away from the movie itself, the creativity and imagination of the people who created the set is beyond belief. The use of blood in the film is really great and the acting couldn't have been better. This is one of the best horror film remakes ever, and if you're going to watch it, do so with an open mind and ignore any review good or bad and judge the film for yourself. It isn't exactly based on a true story, the people were murdered in the house but no paranormal events occured, if you don't believe me do some research on the internet, but still it makes for a good movie.

This re-make of the original Amityville Horror story is much like most remakes. Don't waste your time or money on it. There are a few more special effects included than the original was able to do, but the story and movie overall is pretty bad. The characters are not likeable and the movie just lies flat. If you decide to purchase it, just remember that you've been warned if you don't like it. And I'm certainly not the only one to say this about this film.

As I walked into the theater where The Amityville Horror was being shown, i was expecting it to receive a thumbs-down from me because the new remakes of famous movies are usually terrible-by that I mean either too much blood or too much intense violent scenes, usually not resembling the original in any way. Even though the remake did not really resemble the original, it was the most enjoyable movie I've seen in ages, especially towards the end. I would love to see a sequel in the near future.

Okay, before I begin, I would simply like to know what it was about this film that was allegedly so bad. I missed this one in theaters and have since read every manner of unfair dissertation you can possibly imagine. Do people these days go to movies solely for the purpose of picking them apart? Apparently, aside from myself and most of my immediate friends and family, they do. What gives? A great many who post here and on the many different message boards I frequent seem so vehemently against the existence of remakes. That leads me to wonder why they bother dedicating their time to watching them in the first place. These people have already convinced themselves of the presumptous notion that the movie will automatically bomb, so why do they put themselves through such unnecessary torture? I guess that is a mystery destined to remain unsolved.

I own the first two original "Amityville" films and, personally, I have to say I was very impressed with what I saw in this remake. Andrew Douglas comes across very competent in his directing skills, and Scott Kosar's screenplay got everything right. This was an updating that upped the intensity level several welcome notches, and the pacing was through the roof. I applaud these improvements because the original movie, while still a fairly decent film in its own right, has not aged very well. It was long overdue for a remake and, for my money, it was well worth the blind buy I made. Nobody will ever really know what happened in that house. Did Ronald De Feo hear voices that compelled him to slaughter his entire family? Were evil spirits or ghosts the real reason behind the Lutz family's departure? Who can say? This remake scored points with me because it gave me everything I wanted out of the original.

Wether or not you will like this movie really depends on if you can appreciate the style in which it is made. It's all about what you expected out of it. There are those out there that will never like a remake of any classic horror film. Personally, I love the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, and I can understand that it (as well as this movie) is a "re-telling" of a story. You can't hold these films up to their predecessors, because Platinum Dunes is "updating" these movies, not trying to improve them. Did you get the felling from the old version that nothing really happened at all? I felt it was very anti-climactic, and felt incomplete after the credits rolled. You won't get that from this version. It is highly entertaining and holds very little to the original. It is much more exciting, as well as scary. In fact, one of the best things about the film is that it is not full of only pop scares that you see comming on a second view. It really is frightening. Ryan Renolds gives an amazingly, unexpectedly, great perfomance. You just have to remember that this, even more so than the original is only INSPIRED by a true story, and very little ACTUALLY happend. It is a movie, and its written that way. Bottom line: this is an entertaining, well made, and scary movie that I could watch over and over again.

I saw this movie the 2nd week it came out with three of my best buddys. I saw the trailer for it on tv and it looked awsome because I loved scary movies. So one night me and my friends decided we were going to see a movie cause we were bored and we decided to see the amittyville horror. I can say that this movie was a creepy fest of gore and shock factors and it was awsome!! I have never been so scared in all my life, it even scared the crap out of all my friends. Even if it was R rated, we were allowed to go to see it--even if we were all under 17 (15 (me) 14, 14 and 13) when i left the theatures, I was pale and shaking. I know that alot of people on here thought this movie sucked and was crap, I completly dissagree. This is the best horror movie ever!
