In this Amityville, the performances are bad, the special effects ho-hum, and it's not even particularly scary. Full Review

I'd like to tell you about the remake of The Amityville Horror (MGM), but I ankled after less than five minutes. It was something about the little girl holding the stuffed animal getting blown away with a shotgun at point-blank range. Full Review

The Amityville Horror fails as a movie, but, if you are searching for are a few good scares, you'll find them here. Full Review

The film is a terrific scare show, fast and furious, made with a lot of style and energy, packing plenty of jolts yet never lingering morbidly over horrific images. It is anchored in strong characterizations, and its plot develops with chilling psychological suspense. It's such a skillfully made entertainment that its plunge into the supernatural is persuasive even for the skeptical. Full Review

Shorter and punchier but nearly as hokey as the original. Full Review
