About this movie

From Michael Bay, the producer of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", comes the true story of Amityville. In November 1974, a family of six was brutally murdered. Now, a year later, an unsuspecting young couple, George (Ryan Reynolds, "Blade: Trinity," "The In-Laws") and Kathy Lutz (Melissa George, TV's "Alias"), and their children move into the house that was the site of the horrific event and is now haunted by a murderous presence. What follows is 28 days of unimaginable terror. With demonic visions of the dead and relentless screams of terror, this is the haunted house story that isn't just a movie - it's real.

Great house. Hot Hot Hot Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George... However its a lackluster retelling of one of the greatest modern american Stories/Lies ever told. And a cardinal sin was committed by changing the main character... 112 Ocean Avenue looked more like the house from what lies beneath... So overall its disappointing.

First, there is huge controversy whether this is "real" or "true". The felon doing life said it isn't who would you believe? Those with the money needs or someone never getting out of prison for murdering his whole family? Secondly, it came out right after the The Excorcist smash hit in 1973. Which was based on the 1949 St. Louis boy story that was true. But here was just a money making ploy that worked.. No truth other than sometimes family members kill each other.

Rosa, you're clearly a moron, with little to no reading comprehension skills. The movie is SET in 1974, not MADE in '74. In any event - this is a good remake of a decent movie. Reynolds actually displays some acting skills, and the film doesn't drag on with useless dialogue. Overall, I'd say this is a decent suspense-thriller...just don't expect too much.
