1.0 out of 5 stars The Horror! The Horror! Oct. 15 2001
By Blahblahblah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
This is the absolute worst in a "series" of awful movies, and this time there isn't even anything supernatural in it! The only way to get across how stupid it is is to describe the plot of this cheap Canadian production.
Two yuppies move into a totally run-down house and three of their friends move in to help do repairs. They discover such mysterious things as a rat infestation, a large spider, weak floorboards and plumbing problems, but manage to fight back with their tool kits and knowledge of home repair. Meanwhile, the wife (who considers herself psychic) decides that "house needs repairs" = "house is infested by evil" and spazzes out over it all, although when she first saw the house she had a "psychic" feeling that they should buy it. Things get even more mysterious when they discover an old Catholic church confesssional stored in the basement (why in God's name is it there!!) and when a neighbourhood dog barks at them (how supernatural!!). Oh yeah, there's also an old woman with one eye hanging around agreeing with the wife that the house is "evil", and some guy who occassionally stands around on their front lawn and doesn't do anything but stare blankly at the house.
Finally, during the last ten minutes of the film, all but two of the above characters get killed (off screen!) because coincidentally it turns out that one of the people staying in the house shot a priest to death in the very same confessional now stored in the basement and suppressed the memory, so this person goes psycho after seeing the confessional. There is, however, one survivor who easily beats up the killer, although most of the other victims were much stronger physically and should have been able to defend themselves just as well.
This Old House is far more exciting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did I miss something? Like the point to this movie? Sept. 27 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
I've seen the earlier movies and liked most of them. I actuallysaw a broadband showing of this on my computer.
I have no idea whyits called Amityville. The house is different, and it is NOT scary inthe least. I had to pause it and come back about 5 times to finish itI was so bored.
Completely predictable...
If you are EXTREMELYbored, need sleep material, or just can't find ANYTHING better to do,this is the movie to watch.
Biggest waste of 1 1/2 hours I can thinkof.
A child could watch it and not get scared. I have no idea whythey even put Amityville in the title. The ONLY connection I saw isthat the house is in Long Island, NY like the first house. Other thanthat, it's a totally different movie.
I don't even want to thinkabout this...

4.0 out of 5 stars The Amityville Curse (1990) Aug. 18 2006
By Chad DeFeo - Published on Amazon.com
In 1990, another Amityville installment was released. The name of this fifth Amityville installment is...THE AMITYVILLE CURSE. This film was pretty good, in my opinion. Sure it isn't THE AMITYVILLE HORROR or AMITYVILLE II: THE POSSESSION, but this one is a worthy sequel.

An unseen assailant murders a Priest in his confessional, forcing the Church to close. Years later, a married couple named DEBBIE (played by Dawna Wightman) and FRANK (played by Kim Coates) buy the beautiful colonial house on 112 Ocean Ave. Debbie finds herself feeling strangely drawn to the house because she has seen it in her dreams. After moving into the house, Debbie's dreams become more intense, which strengthen the evil within the house, where all the nightmarish hauntings REALLY begin. First, the Priest's former housekeeper is murdered by an unseen force, other hauntings go on, where Debbie must battle the evil and save herself, her husband, hopefully put an end to Amityville's evil.

Again, this was a worthy sequel. I really did enjoy this one. I am surprise at how well this turned out. Yeah, it isn't as good as the first or second installments, but this is a great sequel for all Amityville fans.

2.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE WORST!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aug. 21 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
This movie has nothing to do with the house and I don't think the title should even contain the word Amityville cause It has nothing REALLY to do with Amityville. If you want to fall asleep at night, put this movie in and I guarentee you will be asleep in less than 15 minutes. (Another good movie to fall asleep by is "High Planes Drifter")

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but still a blast to watch Dec 1 2005
By Santeria - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Whilst it is not the best in the series, it is quite intriguing to watch this film. If you know Hans Holzers works, then this film will make more sense. But if you sit and watch, and listen, then the film does have an internal logic.

I presume that the main reason people condemn the film is that the focus is more on character and plot points than WHAM in your face FX.

Overall, it is a "Sins of the Fathers" type of film, and works well in this sense.
