Mildy entertaining
2 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from this film, however it turned out to be decently entertaining considering it's the fourth Amytville sequel. The plot concerns a possessed lamp removed from the original Amytville house, that is now in a new house causing mayhem. The acting is decent and the story isn't too boring. Sadly it lacked gore, but then so did a lot of films in the late 80's.

Whenever I see a lamp now I always think of this film, whether that's a good thing or not I don't know. If you can find a cheap copy then it may be worth a watch, however I wouldn't go out of your way to find it as it's not the best around.
