This series is lengthy enough, so I figured it might need a thread all to its own.
When I was little, the original Amityville Horror used to freak me out. Now, not so much, but I do still enjoy it.
Amityville 2: The Possession was freaky in its own right, but I've not seen it in years. When I was younger, possession movies really bothered me, so I think I watched it once and tried to put it out of my head. Remember next to nothing about it except for Burt Young (Paulie dere) carrying a gun at some point.
I don't recall ever seeing Amityville 3-D/Amityville 3: The Demon, although I do own the DVD. Need to finally get around to watching that.
I always got Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes mixed up with The Amityville Curse. I don't believe I've seen this one either.
The Amityville Curse is actually pretty decent. At least, I remember it being so. Again, probably not watched this one since age 12 or so, but I remember liking it a lot. In finding these pics, I'd never noticed before but on the cover art for the re-release on VHS by Starmaker, they erased the image of the person hanging from the tree (see above). Interesting.
Amityville 1992: It's About Time
Amityville: A New Generation
The Amityville Horror remake, I didn't care much for. Not bad enough to hate or watch as a fun/cheesy bad movie. Just bland and kind of there. More forgettable than anything.
The Amityville Haunting... this just looks awful. And again, I wonder if the guys at Asylum actually obtained the rights to the franchise or if they were somehow skirting it. I don't see how you can use the house's famous image and the name "Amityville" in regard to a horror movie and now somehow owe MGM or the current rightsholders something.
For fans of the original story/book, I highly recommend both of the History Channel's History's Mysteries documentaries on the ordeal. They cover the original DeFeo murders, as well as the alleged hauntings, the book, movie, and hoax allegations. Very interesting.
Any fans of this series?
