On the night of November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. took a high-powered rifle and murdered his entire family as they slept. At his trial, DeFeo claimed that "voices" in the house commanded him to kill. This is their story.

The demonic forces in the haunted Long Island house escape through a mystical lamp which finds its way to a remote California mansion where the evil manipulates a little girl by manifesting itself in the form of her dead father.
This movie is a 'found-footage' film about the Benson family who move in to the infamous house where the DeFeo family were murdered in the 1970s over 30 years earlier. Things start ... See full summary »
A desperate single mother moves with her three children into the notorious, supposedly haunted, real-life Amityville house to try and use its dark powers to cure her comatose son. Things go horribly wrong.
Jennifer Jason Leigh,
Probably the worst installment of the franchise and that is saying something. This film should never have been made. "The Amityville Terror" is an even bigger dud than "The Amityville Curse" (1990).
The original three films (1979, 1982, 1983) weren't great works of cinematic history but they were professionally acted, well directed and had good production values. This installment had NONE of those things.
Hollywood et al just need to stop with creating additions to this franchise. Its played completely out.
