Audience Reviews for The Amityville Haunting

This is one of those films in the found footage genre that has been lost due to the fact that so many films have popped up in recent memory and have made impact. This one on the other hand never did due to several reasons. First off, the series has been stretched out to its limits and has no shred of creativity left in terms of effective storytelling, and that was apparent with other entries in this series as well. Acting wise, everyone here seems lost, and can't act whatsoever. This is a poorly constructed film with no care given to the film's content and it was clear that the filmmakers didn't care about how the finished product would look. This is a painful film to watch and in terms of found footage, this is among the worst films in the genre. I really don't understand why this one was made, as it offers nothing to the genre, aside from bad directing and acting. In the long run, you'll surely forget this one, and it definitely isn't worth your time. Watch something else as this one is just a painful viewing experience that doesn't deliver any scares or thrills. You will surely be bored watching this film, and you'll be disappointed that the film didn't offer anything worthwhile that would warrant a viewing of this dreadful piece of trash. Pass up on this; you'll be glad you did. Director Geoff Meed can't direct a film, and he never should make another film again. The Amityville Haunting offers nothing new to the genre, and it is a mess from start to finish.

Former Marine Douglas (Jason Williams) moves his wife, his teenage daughter, his young son and young daughter into a house in Amityville, which they discover was the old Amityville home where Ronald J. Defeo Jr. massacred his family, and the same house the Lutz family lived in as well.

Using first person camerawork from the son Tyler (Devin Clark), and surveillance cameras set up in the house, we're treated to a bunch of light scares, horrible acting, and a plot so paper thin if you turned it sideways you wouldn't be able to see it.

I heard about this film and was intrigued, but when I saw it was done by Asylum, my hopes diminished greatly. For those who don't know, Asylum makes horrid straight-to-DVD rip-offs of big motion pictures. And this one is no exception. Not only does it rip off the Amityville franchise, but the Paranormal Activity ones as well.

The storyline, as stated earlier, was just horrid. Two people died while the family moved in, and they didn't really give it much heed. The kid captures a lot of paranormal stuff on his camera, but not once did they ask to actually SEE what he recorded. Some of the scares were cool, and the dad's meltdown into insanity was funny to see, but other than that, it was just really bad.

Not to mention they really hold to the fact that this "is a real movie" based on "real found footage," even going to the lengths of not having a cast listed, and a special "documentary" about what really happened in the house. Complete with spelling errors (such as calling a Sheriff a "Sherrif") and listing the coroners reports with "extram" instead of "extreme."

So call the "Sherrif" because this movie is "extram" trash.

See? This is what happens when you don't have a script. Actors must improv and boy, do they improv poorly when they don't have any clue what the hell is supposed to be happening.
