Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes (Quick Review) I'll confess that I haven't seen any of the other Amityville films aside from this and the first one, however, I can't imagine those others being this awful. I have heard that it was made-for-TV, so that should give us all some clue as to what we're dealing with here.
A family brings home the most ghastly lamp on the face of the earth--even as art this thing is ugly. It looks like a dead tree that God hated with giant glowing testicles for the lights. Now, if the Whore of Babylon were here today and standing next to Heidi Fliess and half the centerfolds from Hustler, there still wouldn't be more ass-ugly make-up on them than on the people in the family in this film. Even the boys in the family are so heavily caked that they look like a Norman Rockwell porno. At any rate, the lamp, for some reason, has the evil spirit from the Amityville house in it and it starts scaring the family in the tender comfort of constant daylight. Uninspired acting and zero atmosphere drag this movie along, but if you happen to have put it in, you won't notice. You'd have started reading a magazine 20 minutes into it.
Recommended to: Horror Survivalists. And nobody else. This film has little to no redeeming value and zero tension, more a curiosity for the bored horror fanatic--and since that's me and I disliked this film, then nobody should watch it. Wal-Mart $5 bin--and it's overpriced. 2/10
