Good for a t.v. movie
11 April 2000 | by (Yucaipa,CA) – See all my reviews

Surprisingly good 4th installment in the now tired franchise. This time a woman buys a lamp from the infamous Amityville house and sends it to some relatives that live in California. As soon as grandmother Jane Wyatt plugs it in, the evil forces make themselves at home. Good story, acting, and music score. ***1/2 out of *****. Skip the next installment "The Amityville Curse" and get "Amityville '92: It's About Time" and the two that follow after that.
