Better then the first movie
7 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am not a huge fan of the Amityville Horror (1979), it was okay movie but not that scary as it was made out to be.

This movie starts of with a new family moving in to the house, a father and mother and four kids, two daughters and two sons.

At first every seem normal, until the strange things start to happen to younger two kids as the house messed one room up but father dose believe the kids and then he hits the poor kids, then eldest son, then point a shotgun at is father to make him stop what he doing.

(I have never hated anyone as much as I hated the father in this movie).

Soon after Sonny the oldest of the sons start to act a bit at strange and start to feel sick, then while the whole family is out, we see how the is be come possessed by the house.

Small spoiler I liked scenes where we see Sonny get possessed by the house, when we see him screaming in pain, when he stomach he being press down by the unseen evil force was really good scene, that was scary and really dark, that is the reason liked this movie more then first and this movie, it is a lot more darker then first movie and the acting was outstanding from everyone

I would have give this movie 10 but I find the ending a tad boring and disappointing so I am going to give this movie a 8 out of 10
