    This movie sucks from the "word" GO. Another BAD remake on the 70's. This movie is so off what the book, and the real story dipicts. The movie is scary, no doubt. Let's start with the house-looks like a mansion compared to the "REAL" house! I have been to the real house and it is much smaller than that, come on! The only positive I can say about the movie is they had the period-70's. I can pick apart this movie limb from limb, I would like to see a movie remade like the book! The 1979 movie was close...not there! six people were killed there! Amityville 2 was a joke, there is another story. Just my two cents-Rick O'suna call me!
