[3.00/10] The Amityville Haunting (2011)

The Amityville Haunting (2011)

QuickRating: Set in a ridiculously inaccurate location, and featuring an implausible story, poor direction, annoying characters and tons of cheap thrills and overly-familiar horror gimmicks, The Asylum's "The Amityville Haunting" feels and looks like a lame "Paranormal Activity" rip-off, so terribly made and so un-scary, that even die-hard fans of the 'found footage' genre will find really hard to appreciate.

omg this is already out? Fuck, that means next year I need to rewatch the whole 8-part-franchise, the remake and this lousy piece of Asylum-crap. Happy new year :)

Nebular said...

Alex, you better do.

Maynard, the DVD screener leaked last week. I saw it the same night, but now I regret it. LOL.

Thanks, but isn't it a bit too early for new year greetings? :)

Maynard Morrissey said...

Um, the 'Happy New Year' ironically relates to the fact that I'm gonna torture myself next year by watching 10(!) awful Amityville flicks.

You see, it will be a 'Happy' new year for me :)

Maynard Morrissey said...

I just realized that next year's self-torture will be incredibly brutal:
I plan to watch all 9 Hellraiser movies, all 9 Children Of The Corn movies, all 10 amityville movies and all 4 Wrong Turn movies.

2012 - The year Maynard's becoming an Uber-Masochist :D

Nebular said...

Ah, silly me. I got it now. LOL.
I try to avoid the Asylum films, but I was curious about this one.

Harry, you're insane... that's really gonna be a pure cinematic torture. You naughty masochist! :)

Maynard Morrissey said...

LOL well, it's a dirty job but somebody's gotta do it :D

I usually avoid the Asylum craptacular specials. They bore me. Definitely will be avoiding this one, too. Great slice n dice, sweetie. :)

Nebular said...

Mel, at first I didn't know it was an Asylum movie. Actually I found out right after I finished watching it. Saw it just because it was a FF horror flick, but it turned out HORRIBLE.

Well I will be sure to avoid this one! It sounds a bit silly now after reading your review. I just wonder how people get away with making such poor/unscary horror films.

Nebular said...

Nicole, avoid this one at all costs. It's neither scary nor particularly interesting. I wonder the same thing. LOL.
