While I'll concede that the film has its moments stylistically, it is still a rather pointless journey into an already tiresome genre.

Assumes for all of its thankfully brief 89 minutes that its audience is stupid and easily-bored, and proceeds to fling nonsense at us without pause.

I would implore anyone who ever wrote it off as a soulless remake to dig a little deeper with a rewatch, because you might just be surprised at how great of a modern horror movie it truly is.

A remake of the 1979 film, The Amityville Horror tries for a clasic sense of creeping suspense, but is sadly inept.

A really bad remake, for a bad movie...

This is a slightly better-than-expected remake of the 1979 film of the same name.

Less frightening than just unpleasant.

Against the odds, the remake rivals the original for sheer mediocrity.

the original wasn't really that great, nor did it have a substantial cult following to justify a remake. So, unusual as it may be, this remake is a much, much better 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.

...this Amityville Horror feels less like a film and more like a "greatest hits" compilation of scenes from better movies.
December 6, 2005
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.

... 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.

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.

out-fakes the first film ups the dosage.

The problem with The Amityville Horror is that, in a very real sense, there's nothing there.
