  • The Amityville Horror

    The Amityville Horror 2005

    ★★½ Rewatched 03 Oct, 2015

    Day 3 of my 31 Days Of Horror challenge.

    I haven't seen the original film yet, but from reading up about the 'true story' it is based on, it seems like quite a good adaptation. Though things do happen pretty fast, so a lot of the scares go over your head. There are some really creepy moments throughout, but it has no after effect. A great cast, though.

    Excellent performances, and a really unique story.

    I had a disclaimer here but everybody went off telling me how wrong I was anyway, so scrap that, you'll just have to deal with it.

    First of all, I like Kubrick's films, love some of them in fact, but I can't even pretend to like this one. It was heavy breathing and scenes of nothing (pretty nothing, but nothing nonetheless) against epic music, or sometimes even just a creepy choir, for 140 minutes straight. I very nearly fell asleep…

    I was told beforehand that this was a love it or hate it film, and that there was no in between. Well I don't agree with any of the negative reviews, so it turns out that I'm one of the few that love it.

    Firstly, I don't know why everybody is going on about the huge emphasis on rape for. There is a focus, yes, but nothing is ever shown, if it even happens at all, as it is all…
