A reporter moves into the ominous Long Island house to debunk the recent supernatural events, and finds himself besieged by the evil manifestations which are connected to a hell-spawn demon lurking in the basement.
The demonic forces in the haunted Long Island house escape through a mystical lamp which finds its way to a remote California mansion where the evil manipulates a little girl by manifesting itself in the form of her dead father.
On the night of November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. took a high-powered rifle and murdered his entire family as they slept. At his trial, DeFeo claimed that "voices" in the house commanded him to kill. This is their story.
For the first time in 35 years, Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975. George and Kathleen Lutz's story went on to inspire a... See full summary »
In disregard of the shocking DeFeo murders, an unsuspecting family moves into the infamous house on 112 Ocean Avenue. Now, ghostly apparitions start to appear in their video surveillance system. Can they survive the Amityville haunting?
Convinced that the horrible rumours about the bloody DeFeo murders and the evil Amityville House are nothing but an elaborate hoax, the inquisitive Reveal Magazine journalist, John Baxter, decides to buy it as an investment. Now, as troubling supernatural incidents and death stain the new residence, John stubbornly insists to remain apathetic, even after yet another tragedy sends his ex-wife, Nancy, one step before madness.

The title "Amityville", both in 3D and 2D, appear to bevel outwards toward the audience. Then the "3D" skews outward from the bottom. See more »
Shout! Factory Blu-ray edition uses a different opening title graphic than other releases. In most prints the word "AMITYVILLE" zooms toward the viewer from the house's windows, then is wiped off the screen, after which "3D" appears. The Blu-ray 2D and 3D versions use a different design of "AMITYVILLE," and in what seems to be an error it stays onscreen as "3D" appears under/behind it, mostly obscured. See more »
Why would anyone want to live in the Amityville house? It's got a bilious basement with a bottomless pit, a lethal living room, and feral flies that swarm in the attic. The sinks don't work either. In fact, this house is going straight to Hell - literally!
Into this questionable piece of real estate moves Tony Roberts, a skeptical journalist who doesn't believe the horror stories concerning the house (or hasn't learned anything from the first two movies) and is determined not to let `superstition' get the better of him. But get the better of him it does
This is in no way a great movie but it keeps me entertained every time I watch it, the hallmark of good low-budget horror fun. And dig that neat poster great horror movie graphics! There's also some amusement to be had due to the presence of a few future stars in the cast such as Lori Loughlin as the daughter of the journalist, who would trade in her haunted house for a Full House. And then there's Meg Ryan, touring the Amityville residence and pondering the joys of sexual relations with ghosts. Whatever floats your boat, Meg!
