Remake time again, but I remember reading the book of this as a kid and being scared silly. Also enjoyed the 1979 film but here it’s all a little funkier and modernised. There’s more jumps and shocks and even influences from recent japanese horrors make an entrance. It’s pretty good in places but the house didn’t feel as spooky as the first time. One thing is for sure though – no matter how well this does at the box office they are not likely to remake Amityville 3D… and yes I went to see that as well first time around.
