Did You Know?

Trivia

On the original poster art, and the UK cover art, the scene is more from Amityville: The Evil Escapes (1989). You can tell because the lamp from the fourth movie is in front of the girl on the floor, and it's clear that she's in the attic from the fourth movie. Also, the girl in the poster is not Rachel Duncan (Jessica), but instead Brandy Gold from the fourth movie. See more »

Another unnecessary, but watchable sequel
29 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Evil can be found in the most unlikely of places. Normally in movies it's found in a house or a person. Other times it's animals or dolls that have somehow gone bad. Inanimate objects coming to life to kill is a pretty scary idea. It's been done effectively, but often times it's a missed opportunity. 'Amityville' parts 4, 6 and 7 all dealt with objects from the cursed dwelling terrorizing new victims. This eighth chapter continues this tradition and isn't too bad.

Pros: Decent acting. Suspenseful. Effective score. Nice job on the make-up and special effects. Some neat ideas. Never dull. Feeling of doom hangs over the film.

Cons: Not much plot. Nothing we haven't already seen. Pace drags a bit. Lacking scares.

Final thoughts: The original 'Amityville Horror' was a success in it's time. However, I don't think anyone imagined there be so many sequels. Though not one of the best, 'Amityville Dollhouse' is a lot better than it should be. Would really do the trick on a rainy afternoon or evening.

My rating: 3/5
