      Howard H Great remake of classic horror film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Sparky K This is a good little horror film. Far superior to the original. Don't know what's going on with the critic's reviews, I think they watched a different film! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Fleegle B An okay movie, best thing about it is Ryan Reynolds is in it Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Stephen M Loved this as a teen & think it still holds up today, not a generic jump scare but a film with a good story Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/21/23 Full Review Aaron S This era of horror movie can simultaneously be great and quite stupid. There's a lot that can pointed to in The Amityville Horror remake that is assuredly stupid, needless, or corny, but I remember being absolutely mortified by this movie as a teenager and now some 20 years later I think it's still pretty effective. A lot of these 00s horror movies do a great job of providing jump scares with scary imagery but while not completely leaning on them and TAH is no exception. I love a good haunted house romp and this fits the bill really well despite its obvious flaws. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review Jes B I read the book long before seeing the 70s version and had many nightmares. I think this remake tried to stay true to its origins and I commend them for it. Also, who doesn't love Ryan Reynolds! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The problem with The Amityville Horror is that, in a very real sense, there's nothing there. Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 30, 2005 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle ... routine remake of a 1979 horror classic. Rated: 1.5/5 May 14, 2005 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …immediately forgettable and disposable stuff, without even the hook of sticking to the original details of the supposedly true story… Rated: 2/5 Dec 8, 2023 Full Review Joe Lipsett Bloody Disgusting The Amityville Remake is a serviceable mid-tier entry in the 2000s remake craze...It’s not terrible, but aside from the lingering body shots of Reynolds running around in low-waisted pyjamas in the rain, it’s not particularly memorable either. Rated: 3/5 Feb 28, 2023 Full Review Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News While I'll concede that the film has its moments stylistically, it is still a rather pointless journey into an already tiresome genre.
