I am gonna go see it.
If the new movie is anything like the old Amityville Horror it'll be cool.
The old one is one of the most fucked up movies I have ever seen.

People put up with too much shit in the theaters.

One day one of my films will make it to the big screen and I'll let you all know and it'll be sweetly psychedelic and good.

I saw the original at the theatre back in the early 80's. They gave us out these retarded 3D glasses and at one point it felt like one of the branches that was blowing stuck me in the eye, of course i was on valium and beer at the time which may have served to enhance the effect :grin:

New York Times critic Manohla Dargis begins her review of the remake of The Amityville Horror with a lesson in horror film economics. "In a world gone drearily mad with sequels and recycled television shows," she writes, "it is merely rhetorical to ask why anyone ... would revisit a stinker like the 1979 flick The Amityville Horror. The answer, of course, is that these days, even the dumbest horror movie scares up decent big-screen business before being shuttled off to DVD perpetuity. Just as crucial, horror is relatively cheap to churn out, especially when the supporting cast features interchangeable no-name guys and gals, and the real star of the show -- in this case, a spacious waterfront Long Island house -- doesn't require its own trailer, a piece of the gross or any of the usual perquisites."

Lou Lumenick in the New York Post laments the fact that Horror is "the once mighty" MGM's final release before being absorbed by Sony. "Even by the low standards of contemporary horror movies, this remake of the old American International Pictures' biggest hit (grossing $86 million in 1979 dollars and spawning six sequels) is shoddily made, boring and, most shockingly, without a single decent scare," he writes.

Other critics write in the same vein. Wesley Morris in the Boston Globe: "An incompetent retread of the equally inane 1979 hit."

Sean Daly in the Washington Post: "A nasty exercise in gore, torture and strobe-like MTV-style cuts."

Jack Mathews in the New York Daily News: "Why remake a horror film if you can't make it scarier?"

Bob Longino in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "Amityville is noise followed by more noise."

Claudio Puig in USA Today: "The performances are bad, the special effects ho-hum, and it's not even particularly scary."

Come on mang, you really don't expect me to read all that in this state do you? :grin:

Btw: Are you really a maker of films or were you just being facetious in a previous post?

I broke it up a little for you (the last post I mean). I am a maker of films...only shorts for now, but I'm working on a couple of full length screenplays. IT's what I want to do with my life, along with writing fiction.
