I watched The Amityville Haunting after all. That was a real piece of work. By piece of work, I mean the worst of the Amityville and related films. That is worthy of some kind of prize. Like a boot to the head.
This new one is based on a real story, of course. Like Cars is based on a true story about a red car. I can assure you that a red car was in a race once. However, this movie is based on the true story of how the owner of the famed house killed his entire family in 1974. As opposed to what actually happened. Details.
You have a guy stuck in his bed with a computer communication device, a teenager who didn’t want to move to a new place and a little blond girl with dollies. Revolutionary stuff.
Paranormal Activity was apparently bludgeoned to death enough, so the producers of that franchise have moved into Amityville! I’m sure someone out there thinks that’s awesome. That someone isn’t me.
Red Forman is in it, so that’s a positive. He’ll give those flies what for, mark my words!
Without further delay, here’s a look at the trailer that came out a few days ago. It has Spanish language closed captioning for those that are into that sort of stuff.
