Anything has to be better than the boring and totally unscary original. The only horror was that I actually departed with hard-earned cash to see it.

let's hope the new amityville will be a full on horror that is genuinely scary instead of a glossy effects heavy movie such as the remakes of house on haunted hill and 13 ghosts.

Correct me if I am wrong. But it seems to me that I had read several years ago that the investigations into the the actual accounts of Amityville were unfounded.
I watched the made-for t.v. movie starring James Brolin and if I remember correctly shortly after this aired there was a publication denouncing the actual events.
I would greatly appreciate any feedback before I elect to see the remake of this movie.

I agree I didnt care for the movie as much as I did the originals even if they didnt really depict any facts. The poor thing about the latest rendition is the movie makers trying to equate the movie with facts; I dont think there are many Amityville movie go'ers out there who are very happy with that.
I am so glad I read the interviews, and now I have a more realistic feeling of what possibly happened.
Anything is possible and I think one would have to look back into history and research the whole area, not just the house, for psychic disturbances.
Please follow my own ghost research at:
One must keep an open mind, and not discount any 'ghostly' possibilities.

I liked it a lot, much scarier but still not scary enough for me.

It's a film. Treat it like that and don't expect too much truth in this film. If you want the facts you will have too reserch the case for youself.
I thought that the James Brolin version was great.
This 05 version is gripping .:)
