A reporter moves into the ominous Long Island house to debunk the recent supernatural events, and finds himself besieged by the evil manifestations which are connected to a hell-spawn demon lurking in the basement.
Convinced that the horrible rumours about the bloody DeFeo murders and the evil Amityville House are nothing but an elaborate hoax, the inquisitive Reveal Magazine journalist, John Baxter, decides to buy it as an investment. Now, as troubling supernatural incidents and death stain the new residence, John stubbornly insists to remain apathetic, even after yet another tragedy sends his ex-wife, Nancy, one step before madness. However, an ancient evil lies at the root of the problem. What is the dark secret of the most horrific house on earth?Written by
Although the film wasn't based on a book like the first two films, it did however, receive a novelization by Gordon McGill. See more »
After the opening credits as Mr. Caswell escorts Melanie and John into the front door, you discover that the perspective view of the foyer in the background of the doorway is fake. There is a gap between the prop background and the top of the door frame where the side of a staircase can be seen ascending in a different direction than the one seen later in the film. See more »
The title "Amityville", both in 3D and 2D, appear to bevel outwards toward the audience. Then the "3D" skews outward from the bottom. See more »
Shout! Factory Blu-ray edition uses a different opening title graphic than other releases. In most prints the word "AMITYVILLE" zooms toward the viewer from the house's windows, then is wiped off the screen, after which "3D" appears. The Blu-ray 2D and 3D versions use a different design of "AMITYVILLE," and in what seems to be an error it stays onscreen as "3D" appears under/behind it, mostly obscured. See more »
The Baxtor family moves into the infamous Amityville House. Their daughter dies in a boating accident but the mother sees the now deceased daughter alive in the house. Mr. Baxtor calls a paranormal investigator in to help and the investigator finds out the source of the household problems. One of the last good sequels in the Amityville trilogy, with some _Bizzare_ special effects (Some times in a good way, other times in a bad way), a terrific cast, some genuinely scary and thrilling moments, and a good atmosphere and suspense built by the director. Pretty good entry in the notorious Amityville series IMHO. 6.5/10
