On November 13, 1974, Suffolk County Police received a frantic phone call that led them to 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, Long Island. Inside the large Dutch Colonial house, they discovered a horrific crime scene that shattered the landscape of the typically peaceful community: an entire family had been slaughtered in their beds. In the days that followed, Ronald DeFeo, Jr., confessed to methodically shooting his parents and four siblings with a rifle while they slept, claiming 'voices' in the house drove him to commit the grisly murders.

One year later, George (Ryan Reynolds) and Kathy Lutz (Melissa George) and their children moved into the house thinking they'd found their dream home. But shortly after settling in, bizarre and unexplainable events began to occur -- nightmarish visions and haunting voices from an evil presence still lurking within the house.

Confused and frightened by her daughter Chelsea's cryptic interaction with an imaginary friend named Jodie, Kathy struggles to hold her family together as George's increasingly strange behavior finds him spending days and nights in the basement of the house, where he soon discovers a passageway to a mysterious and gruesome 'Red Room.' With lucid visions and evil voices swirling through George's head, the house comes alive in a terrifying climax that finds him carrying out the spine-chilling events that would become forever known as The Amityville Horror.

Based on the true story of George and Kathy Lutz, The Amityville Horror remains one of the most terrifying stories ever because of one small fact -- it actually happened. 28 days after moving in, the Lutz family abandoned the residence, lucky to escape with their lives. Now 30 years after the shocking events that inspired a best selling novel and one of the most popular horror films of all time, come revisit the house that started it all: The Amityville Horror.

 A REMAKE THATS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL!

| | See all MovieAddict's reviews (1336)

At last this remake puts this once dead series back on the map. This remake is better than the original, it's got a good cast, good tight editing and a very swift running time. The film is not overblown like the original. But it's better because when the movie is scary, it really is. Some of the scenes do make you jump out of the seat. Lets hope that this is not a one off, and can return this series back out of the bowels of hell. There is still plenty of life in the old house yet.
A very good chiller.

i really dont like it when classic horror films are re-made but in this instance it out classes the original in every way possible, although that is nothin really to boast about cuz the original is so boring and has nothing scary about it one bit,as for the re-make it does have genuine spine tingling moments and never gets boring,oh and dont believe its based on a true story cuz its all fake,sorry if that spoils it for anyone!!!

 Best Horror Film Ever!

| | See all JohnDavies's reviews (4)

This is scary all the way through the film, not just a big build up to the end.

So much happens throughout the film and you cant help but jump in some parts. The evil look from the girl who looks like the exorcist is pretty spooky.

Make sure you have clean underwear for after the film!

 Genuine Horror

| | See all dest23's reviews (79)

Horror remakes shouldn't be good as we have seen them all before, this film dives deeper into the house and the paranoia of a family who were in desperate need of help. The film is genuinely shocking and at times very frightening which is a credit to the actors for their performance and the directors and producers for creating an atmosphere of panic and suspense. Perhaps a bit pricey at £16.99 but definetly worth a rent.
