This was the last picture Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) released as an independent company. On 8 April 2005, the studio was acquired by several companies, including Sony, in the middle of the promotion for this movie. Several other films, including Into the Blue (2005) and The Pink Panther (2006), were already produced and set for release by MGM at the time of the buyout, and were later released by Sony Pictures.

I was not big fan of the original at all, I did find it boring, when I heard they were making remake, I was little happy It took me while to see the movies but I did hear nothing but bad reviews, I had see for my self, there was chance I would still like it.
I have see every single one of Amityville movies in series, and saw this last.
This movie did not feel like Amityville movie at all as there were no atmosphere what so ever in this movie, that was one of the only reason liked the first a little bit.
I found the movie Ghost scenes were really silly and looked really fake, same for lame scare scene which do not work at all.
I didn't like original that much, i never noddy of watching it twice a least but when I saw this was really boring and I was nodding off.
I really shocked how poor George Lutz was in this movie, I liked him in other movies, I don't think horror movies are for me.
It not just really bad remake, it's real bad movie.
