The Amityville Asylum: I still don't fully understand what I just watched
After a seemingly never ending string of poor Amityville films the Brits step up to the plate and make one of their own.
This time set in a world where the infamous Amityville house has been demolished and upon the ground an asylum has been built instead (Which immediately makes no sense) A girl takes a job as a cleaner and witnesses strange things happening and questions both her own sanity and the motivations of those around her.
To be fair if you can get past how ridiculous the concept is it's not entirely terrible, sadly the film is.
The plot makes very little sense if any at all, the competence of the film makers is clearly there but not the extent where they could turn this around.
Poorly written and hardly an Amityville feature.
Plot is baffling
Concept is daft
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Christians getting tattoo's still makes me laugh
Nobody bothered telling the cast they were pronouncing Amityville wrong
