Amityville Horror 1979 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Amityville horror is a great movie that makes you think, “What if the house is haunted by something worse?” Newly weds by their dream house which is just within range of their budget. Various murders were committed in the house but it is okay since the real estate agent forgot to mention it. When the couple moves in they start to experience strange occurrences and after consulting a psychic they thrust in the right direction. The house sits on top a gate to hell and it must be closed. The feeling of foreboding never decreases.
The Amityville Horror favorite quote: While Carolyn is possessed, she says “Find the well… it’s the passage… to hell! COVER IT!”
Based on a bestselling, allegedly nonfiction book about haunted goings-on in a Long Island house (The Amityville Horror Conspiracy), this rather cheesy horror movie is more silly than unsettling. James Brolin and Margot Kidder star as newlyweds who move into the empty home and are gradually affected by the legacy of a murder committed on the premises. Rod Steiger is a priest who can tell what’s up and gets dispatched in a rather ugly way. Director Stuart Rosenberg can’t lift the action above a certain level of tawdriness, and the audience ends up watching the horror from a distance instead of feeling involved. In the wake of The Exorcist, this 1979 spooker seemed like a no-brainer knockoff—and still does.
