When the evil forces caused the elevator to malfunction, the man inside is shown pressed against the ceiling as the elevator is rapidly descending. The only way this could happen is if the elevator was accelerating downward faster than the force of gravity could pull it. That he should stick to the ceiling is against the laws of physics.

Perhaps I'm overdoing it a bit (And cribbing lines from Ghostbusters), but this movie is boring, lame, and inexcusably long. With nearly a half hour left to go in the movie I nearly threw in the towel. This movie drains away your soul like some sort of...well, souldraining creature. If such a thing exists.
This abomination is about a house (Presumably the same one that goes bonkers in the fourteen other movies in this series, forgive me for only having seen this one) that is haunted. A cynical investigative reporter buys it on a lark, and winds up having everyone he knows and love terrorized or maimed by the wacky house all because the man is too dumb to believe something is wrong with the place. Played by Tony Roberts (Who I know as Alvy's buddy Max in Annie Hall), you really just want to tell the guy to zip it.
Anywho, the effects are fairly lame, made all the worse by the fact that the film was originally shown in 3-D, which did not make it to the video version (The box even says "Amityville 3-D" and then right below "Video release - Not in 3-D." Oops). So there are lots of blatant 3-D effects, which aren't in 3-D, so you can imagine how annoying that gets. And the huge 80s haircuts don't exactly enhance the spooky happenings.
I wanted desperately to just give in to the movie, and at least enjoy it for the sheer fact that it is such a failure. But it's just not fun to watch. And unlike some other stinkers, there really isn't all that much wrong with this one technically. There's no goofy editing, or booms in the shots, it's just a bad, bad movie. Oh, but watch for those "Before They Were Stars" turns by Meg Ryan and that woman from Full House (You'll know her when you see her, she married Jesse). Even they couldn't escape the sucking vortex of doom that is Amityville 3-D.
