Following the tragic death of her parents Fawn Harriman discovers she has inherited a theatre in the town of Amityville. She, along with 3 friends, decides to spend the weekend there looking the place over. Meanwhile one of her High School teachers begins an investigation into the village's past and makes a connection with something that goes back beyond recorded history.
Spencer Banks (Rev Simon Randall) played a character called Simon Randall in the 1970 children's UKTV series Timeslip (1970). His co-star in that series was Cheryl Burfield, playing his wife in this film. Lesley Scoble (Karen) was another castmember from the show, where she played Alpha 17. The Harrimans are also forenamed Frank and Jean, after the Skinners from the show. (Writer Steve Hardy is a fan of the ATV show.) See more »

As 1 is the lowest I could possibly rate this film I have to say it doesn't even deserve that.
Being another cash-in from the Amityville name this one really is an insult to every 'horror' film ever made, it's even worse than Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows and that's saying A LOT!
The story (a generous description) is so clichéd that it bears no essence of even trying to be original, the 'acting' (I can't think of a word bad enough) has all the charisma of a block of bad cheese with the characters being totally unrelatable and you wonder why people this horrible would actually be friends. Maybe it's some sort of karma for each of them for things done in a previous life? To be honest I don't really care, it's just not good.
Not really sure what the purpose of this film is, it doesn't add anything, don't go anywhere and as films go quite pointless, I think it went straight to DVD as I can't imagine anyone actually going to the cinema to see this rubbish!
Oh yeah, special effects were crap too!
