Amityville 3-D Review


A reporter moves into the ominous Long Island house to debunk it of the recent supernatural events and becomes besieged by the evil manifestations which are connected to a hell-spawn demon lurking in the basement.

I watched this last Friday on the lovely AMC Fear Friday broadcast. "Amityville 3 : The Demon" is also known as "Amityville 3-D".. for .. you guessed it! It was filmed in 3-D.

The movie stars some pretty big name actors, such as Tony Roberts, Candy Clark, Lori Loughlin and even a very young Meg Ryan. The movie is basically about a reporter that doesn’t believe in superstitions, and purchases the house for a very cheap price. Of course some weirdo things start to happen, as you could guess. The 3-D effect is pretty extreme and goofy, considering you’re most likely not watching it with 3-D glasses on. Everything from tree branches, flies, to burnt bodies lunge toward the camera to try to scare you.

All in all I found this movie pretty boring and couldn’t really get into it. If you’re a fan of the Amityville series then it’s recommended, but other wise it’s pretty boring.
