Just finished the first movie in the pain a thon.. half way through the second, had a nice breakfast and already wondering what am I doing with my life… Anyways the first movie was Amityville Curse from 1990 . Look at that cover it is not even the Amityville house and there is some person just “hanging around” on the cover lol. Another spook house film thats a metaphor for wife abuse and mixes other 70s horror tropes and cliches in a Canadian made for tv kinda budget .
There are so many cheesy Amityville sequels , rip offs , spin offs… i mean since it was a real house i guess anyone can use the name. Recently there are dozens using the name for shot on digital video zero budget movies like Amityville Death house by Mark Polonia. Well Amityville CURSE that i grabbed from Eyesore cinema was made in 1990 so its a little more polished than that. Has some great looking set pieces in the house and some eerie music and mists and event some cool creepy zombie like ghosts. It feels like many of the witchboard spin offs of bad hair weird looking couples in a haunted house. They are all real actors but feel like they should stay to mid day television. Unlikeable movie but not exactly a bad movie. I would watch Witchboard instead though. Perhaps the only Amityville i recommend thats worth more than one watch is part 2 the possession, its nice and freaky and has a few twists worth while. But this is not that. ok the next movie is almost half over….. hang on i will be back..
