A shoo-in for anyone's bad movie list
23 April 2001 | by (Newcastle, Australia) – See all my reviews

Still the nastiest film I have ever seen. This one's got it all. Gruesome violence, infanticide, matricide, patricide, incest, the list goes on. An uncharismatic Jack Magner, who bears a sickly resemblance to a young Rick Springfield, heads a cast of unknowns into deserving oblivion in a pointless "prequel" to The Amityville Horror, which is a masterpiece by way of comparison.

Irredeemably ugly, gratuitous, exploitative film-making at its very worst. Are teenagers expected to see this for entertainment? The only mystery to be solved is: will your stomach hold out against this cinematic offal-bucket? Avoid, avoid, avoid.
