Better than the third
10 June 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The fourth movie in the 'Amityville'-series: "Amityville - The evil escapes" As the title says "Evil escapes" does they mean evil like evil? The movie takes place a few years after the first movie. All the furniture from the house has been sold. A old lady buy a lamp, which has been possessed by 'Evil'... This plot sounds so dumb. But it is actually better than the third movie in the series. This is still a b-movie, but one of the better kinds. The movie lifted the series a little up. The acting was okay, not the best not the worst.

The movie is a TV-movie and then you expect bad acting and bad script, but this movie showed me, TV-movies wasn't that bad. Still the movie had a idiotic plot. But you could stand the horror in this movie.

"Amityville -The Evil Escapes" was a fun time to watch not the best movie. And not a movie you could call a classic. But still… It not damage to see this.,

"Amityville - The Evil Escapes" gets 5/10
