A group of people go to
the old mansion in Amityville that is
reputed to be haunted and to refurbish it
as an investment but yet they expreience
the walls shaking, doors slamming shut
and encountering ghouls as well as deadly
looking tarantula's creeping around.
A gifted psychic named Debbie (Dawna
Wightman) seems to feel the terror in
each room and is tormented in her
nightmares about it then tries to warn
everyone about the house being evil as a
priest named Father Parcaeus (Jan Rubes)
was once murdered there and his spirit
may be warning all of them.
Also one of them named Frank (Kim Coates)
begins to act strange and depressed
leading to suicides and then starts to
get possessed ready to go on a murderous
rampage due to something in the cellar of
There's good shots on the house
along with everyone getting together and
discussing the house about exploring it
making it look like the rest of the Amityville flicks.
We spot pointless discussions with everyone
near a fireplace opening up their fortune
cookies after their dinner which looked
We spot a good shot on Debbie walking on a floor and crashing down
on the floor.
There's a shot on Frank about to make his way downstairs in a
cellar with the railing breaking but it
looked very phony.
There's shots on Bill in a cellar looking at some pipes moving
which the setting was supposed to look
creepy but doesn't do the trick.
There's a cheesy make out scene between Frank and Abigail in a bathroom
with a pipe bursting in the shower which
was supposed to make you jump but misses
by a longshot.
We do have some good shots on Debbie
going down in the cellar and exploring
with some candles and then a good shot on
a cabinet lighting up with smoke along
with a ghoul clawing through the inside of
the cabinet and then later on reaching
out for her.
There's a character named Mrs. Moriarty as an elderly type of woman introducing herself
and talking about the house which looked
way too comedic but yet there are some
laughing moments when she talks about her
cat and holding it.
There's shots on doors slamming and walls
shaking with books falling out which
looked extremely amateurish.
We spot a good shot on a tarantula slowly
walking up on Bill while
sleeping and then a good shocked reaction
when he wakes up.
We spot some good nightmare sequences
with shots on Frank hanging
himself with some mist in the air.
We have a good shot on Mrs. Moriarty getting scared near a cellar and then
being pushed down the stairs.
We spot a great scene with Frank at a booth confessing his sins to a
priest and then Frank goes in a
screaming rage along withthe priest looking frightened and trying to pray.
Then we spot a good shot on Frank pointing a gun at him and shooting.
There's many great struggling moments
between Frank and Debbie in the house running from the cellar
where there's candles layered and her
hiding from him with shots on her trying
to throw sharp objects at him which was
the best scene of all giving it that
great horror feel finally.
Bottom line is that this is without a
doubt the worst one out of the Amityville
series plus the house looks completely
different alltogether. I found this one a
tough one to believe it's the house the
Lutz family lived in as it was a little
too comedic and seemed like a spoof on
The story was very weak and not the least
bit scary at all. The film is saved from
bombing due to the near ending which
looked very possessive and tense but
that's it folks.
A film very forgettable and offensive to
the fans of the Amityville
The acting is very
average and some of it is below average
too. Lead actor Kim Coates (Frank) really
drew attention to the audience with his
flirtatious attitude and then knowing how
to get strongly emotional and well as
going in an evil and screaming rage too. Plus shows some good energy with his menacing behavior.
Dawna Wightman (Debbie) shows a good tense
behavior but however she sometimes overly
does it when she freaks out or gets
scared and it's not at all believeable especially in a scene on her waking up she freaks out about the
house being haunted.
Helen Hughes (Mrs. Moriarty) as the eccentric
elderly lady who has knowledge about the
house was way too much and was too
comedic. I wasn't at all convinced on her
acting skills at all but she came across
as funny sometimes. She does a good job by getting scared at times.
David Stein (Marvin) seemed to bring his
chraming attitude on quite well by being
the host of the whole group and was
overly impressed by him. I'd have to say
he was the best out of the whole cast.
Cassandra Gava (Abigail) showed a nice bubbly
type of attitude to her part in the film
showing nice characteristics to her part
A side of a
person's face and hand are brutally
We do spot the classical
music but it really doesn't fit for the
storyline and sounding too corny like the
plot itself. We do hear some screechy
music though for the suspenseful moments
the odd time along with a major
struggling moment almost towards the end
of the film and a powerful classical
songtrack for the closing credits which
sounds nice but that's about it composed
