The Amityville Horror wasn't such a "horror" after all
Because I am dedicated to this site and (more truthfully) I will watch any horror or sci-fi movie that I have in front of me, I watched last year'r remake of The Amityville Horror.
I have to say that it was worth the watch. My expectations were low and they were exceeded. There were some good scares and, though it is very different from the original, I liked the new ideas. Ghost movies now rely on the audience seeing what the characters can not and the images that the Amityville house was showing were pretty freaky. Though I love that we only see the eyes in the old movie, the ghosts in the remake had a real sadness that made the movie even more terrifying.
The only let-down was the ending SPOILER:
Don't show us someone die in a freaky scene and then have it all be a quick vision of what the ghost is telling the husband to do. That is cheating the audience.
END of SPOILER
In conclusion, when The Amityville Horror makes it to the dollar bin in your dvd rental place pick it up.
