THE AMITYVILLE HORROR


     I don't know if it's just that I'm older now and less believing, or if it's just that scary fims today just aren't scary. Sure, I jump a little when it's really quiet and a loud noise suddenly comes out of nowhere, but that's a normal human response, I'm not scared, just startled. The ghosts in this remake aren't really all that scary to me anymore. I've seen thir kind in hundreds of films. I'm bored with the horror genre I guess. I haven't seen a movie that really freaked me out since "The Exorcist," or given me the intense feel of evil since "Silence of the Lambs."

     This is a remake of the 70's campy version by Stuart Rosenberg (Cool Hand Luke). A newly wed couple and their children move into a haunted house (because, get this, a murder occurred there...oooo) and things start to happen to drive the husband mad. Boring. Why remake this? It's already been remade a hundred times. A haunted house, an interested preacher, a scared wife, stupid people, ancient rituals and lights that don't work when they're supposed to. I think it was made so the main character (Ryan Reynolds of "National Lampoon's Van Wilder) could have an excuse to show how hard he's been working out between films.

"My God! Why did I sign
up for this picture?"
     I don't even want to talk about this anymore. Might be good for a laugh and a chill on a stormy Saturday night, but other than that, horror does not begin to describe my feelings toward Amityville. You can get the same shrieks from an audience watching "Nightmare on Elm Street."
