The Amittyville Haunting. 2011.

The Amityville Haunting is a direct to video film released in December 2011. It is the tenth production to be inspired by the 1977 book The Amityville Horror. NetflixThe film was produced by The Asylum and Taut Productions. The film was directed by Geoff Meed, and stars Tyler Shamy, Devin Clark and Jon Kondelik. The tagline is “The family did not survive. But the recordings did.” It claims to be based on “actual found footage that documents the horrifying experiences of a family that moved into the infamous haunted house.”

What an absolute waste of time this was. I tend to take alot of chances on unheard of or micro/no budget movies and it’s really hit and miss. More misses than hits really, but that’s part of the fun. So when my brother called me up for some Netflix action (the wifey’s were gone) I took him up on the offer and we decided on Amittyville Haunting.

If I had $100 I could write, direct, act in, produce, edit, cast, mix audio, program the cgi, cater, grip, 2nd direct, 2nd assistant direct, market, drive, scout locations, conduct still photography, score and distribute The Amittyville Haunting without a doubt, and I’m not exaggerating here, at least a billion times better than they did.

In my humble opinion I think it is a travesty that the name Amittyville is even attached to this piece of garbage, let alone having a picture of that iconic house on the cover; needless to say it is never even shown at any point throughout the movie. The acting if that’s what it’s called was atrocious, constant stumbling, stuttering and over emphasizing . Which brings me to the father; what a trainwreck. I actually despise him, as far as movie dads go this guy gets the award for the biggest prick of the year. If you see this pop up on crackflix please do yourself a big favour and run……run as fast as you can….
