Before long, Shae starts experiencing strange and vivid hallucinations, and, little by little, a dark supernatural force creeps into the house. Now, a well-hidden secret which dates back decades is about to resurface, as the demonic stranglehold on Shae ushers in a new era of terror. Has the unsuspecting family walked right into a trap? Can they set themselves free from Amityville's infernal portal? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?


Amanda Barton, who wrote and acted in this film was part of the wardrobe crew for "Exorcism: The Possession of Gail Bowers" - which features the house used for the 2005 "The Amityville Horror" remake on the promos for that movie. Also, the house on the cover for "Amityville Terror" was not used in the movie, just as the house on the promotional items for "Exorcism: The Possession Of Gail Bowers" was not used in that movie, either.

Terrible Film
8 January 2017 | by nofateredemptionSee all my reviews

I went into this with hopes of it being decent. As I've always been a fan of the Amityville films since I was a young kid. However, this left me cringing. Painful cringes. I thought my bones would snap from how hard I was cringing. The acting is terrible. Actually, terrible isn't even the right word for how bad the acting is but it's the best one for now. The characters are unlikable. The pace of the film is excruciatingly slow. It's just all around, BAD. If you are a fan of horror then my best advice is to Stay Away From This Film. Stay FAR Away! Rob Zombie makes better horror than this. And THAT'S saying something.
