One of the most celebrated horror films of the late '70s is given a new look in this remake, produced by blockbuster filmmaker Michael Bay. George and Kathy Lutz (Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George) are a young couple who are looking for a new home, and think they've found a dream house in Amityville, Long Island -- a large and beautiful home available at a bargain price. George thinks that there must be a catch, and learns that the house has a dark history -- a year before, a man living in the

A few lines get laughs, but the horror is standard fare, without a shred of innovation.
Never buy a house with a basement, and while you're at it, avoid old Dutch Colonials in which the previous occupants were murdered by an eldest son possessed by demons.
Nothing gets in the way of the rote staging, the ham-handed predictability, the feeling that you've been to this house, and yawned at these ghosts, once too often.
The Amityville Horror is a Xerox so tattered and faded that it's impossible to determine who's to blame for the overproduced mediocrity before our eyes.
A remake of the 1979 film, The Amityville Horror tries for a clasic sense of creeping suspense, but is sadly inept.
This is a slightly better-than-expected remake of the 1979 film of the same name.
The best thing I can say about Andrew Douglas's remake of The Amityville Horror is that it gave me a reason to track down the original film.
The movie's only aspiration is to be a jacked-up re-jiggering of a name-brand horror 'classic.' It sets out to be not just schlock, but pre-chewed schlock.
... The Amityville Horror is the best horror movie of the year so far. Faint praise, to be sure, but at least it's R-rated.
The Amityville Horror is just another decidedly bland, but mildly entertaining, horror film churned out in the rush to cash in on the reemergence of horror in Hollywood.
Douglas logra varios momentos de tensión en los que, si se va al cine con la suficiente intención de disfrutar la película, llega a generar uno que otro buen susto.
not really that good but better than the other eight previous movies
The prime victims are children who are shot, threatened, tortured and killed without any hesitation or reason other than to provide quick thrills.
Another of those recent horror pictures that you resent while in its presence and forget immediately afterwards.
there is so much effort to explain everything, to supply reasons for things that don't need them and therefore cannot sustain them, that the film folds in on itself
It's just your routine family-in-a-haunted-house flick, where creepy apparitions cause the patriarch to descend into axe-wielding madness and threaten his kin. You liked it when it was called The Shining.
Punchy, frightening, and far slicker than the original - but for all the refurbishment, something's still not quite right with this haunted house.
