(at around 51 mins) The name of the town in Long Island is Am/it/e/vil, not "A/mity/ville," which is how Lisa's friend says it. The movies are called the "Amityville" movies because the real story took place in Amityville, Long Island. Unless both girls live really far away from where she works, they would know how to pronounce it right. Then about 3 minutes later, Lisa says the street name wrong, even though that's one part of the address her friend said right three minutes earlier. She says "112 Oceans Avenue." It's Ocean Avenue. Unless they changed the name of the road, how would she not know this? See more »
B Movies seem to be making a big come back this year and this one fits right in there with other legends of the genre ticking every box to ensure that it'll mark low and leave you wondering why you bothered.
Woeful script? Score. Actually the script wasn't so bad although more than a little clichéd. If only the delivery wasn't so abysmal. Acting? Hackneyed characters with poor back-stories. Brought to "life" through the art of people pretending to be someone they're not. Or maybe they were good characters, hackneyed in to existence through bad acting. Scares? You'd think that borrowing the Amityville legend would lend some worthwhile thrills, but you'd be wrong.
The best thing I can say about this movie is that it was only 86 minutes long. Which was plenty.
