Better than the book...
18 October 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie, which was based on a book by the same name...the true story of a family terrorized by demons in their Pennsylvania home. Strangely, I found the characters in the movie to be much more likeable than the actual people in the book, with the exception of the grandma (Louise Latham) who bugged me to no end with her whining. The film appears to be very loosely based on the book, however, as most of this type of "true story" films are...many events were left out entirely or embellished upon heavily to make it more sequential. One of the funniest things was the casting of the fairly attractive (and relatively youthful) Diane Baker as Lorraine Warren...if anyone has seen the real Lorraine and Ed Warren, you will see what I mean. (Perhaps as co-writers of the book they had some sort of hand in the casting...?) All in all, it's not an Amityville Horror, but a pretty good made for TV movie that's worth watching.
