Not bad as found footage films go
23 March 2012 | by (A remote cabin in the wilderness) – See all my reviews

I don't know why people have such a problem with this film. It's nowhere near as bad as some of the silly reviews here make it out to be. People complain about the acting. While the performances here are far from Oscar-worthy, they are still reasonably competent. Wanna see a case of bad acting? Check out Strawberry Estates for an example of some truly awful performances by the entire cast.

Maybe I'm just a sucker for the 'found footage' sub-genre, but I thought this film delivered some genuinely creepy moments. It doesn't break any new ground or tell us anything we didn't already know about the history of the Amityville saga, but I enjoyed it for what it was. It's certainly hands down better than most of the Amityville sequels we've been subjected to over the years.
