Mildly entertaining made-for-TV Amityville sequel.
9 April 2019 | by b_kiteSee all my reviews

This one actually has a decent story to it taking the action outside of the Amityville house and putting the evil in an old lamb, which is genuinely creepy. The problem here though is the made-for-TV budget and feel, director Sandor Stern who directed the Canadian classic Pin tries to put in some creepy moments to play with the audience, sadly though the first half is rather slow, and after the first five minutes in the Amityville house it literally takes forever for something to start happening. It's definitely better then part 3 that's for sure, but, there's still no reason for you to go out and look for this thing. If your a prime member though at this time it is available to watch for free.
