The Amityville Haunting is a 2011 horror movie directed by Geoff Meed and starring Luke Barnett, Jason Williams, Amy Van Horne and Tyler Shamy.
This movie is a found footage horror and it is the same as all of the others you have seen. It starts with a family moving into the Amityville house. Strange things happen and they see spooky things etc etc. The reason I am not going into details for this movie is that it was crappy. I could see it all coming and there was little scares or originality. It was boring. One of the kids has a camcorder and he films everything that happens in the house. You just know that there will be some ghostly occurences and doors opening etc.
The Amityville story or whatever you want to call it has been done to death and this movie is just a reminder of that.
I loved the original Amityville Horror with James Brolin and Margot Kidder and some of the sequels were enjoyable too, but when you count how many bad movies have been based on this house, you realise that it has to stop somewhere. Anyway I'm sure there will be another reboot sometime so we will have yet another Amityville movie!Do yourself a favour and skip this movie and revisit the original. It is much scarier, there is better acting and it is a classic. This gets 1/10. Very poor.
