The Amityville Curse (1990)

Directed by Tom Berry. Written by Michael Kreuger, Doug Olson and Norvell Rose. Starring Kim Coates, Dawna Wightman, David Stein, Anthony Dean Rubes, Cassandra Gava, Jan Rubes and Helen Hughes.

Plot: five people buy a house together because it’s a steal, but it quickly turns into a nightmare.

This movie is all over the place and does not actually revolve around the Amityville house we’re used to. It’s just a house in the same town where a priest was shot to death in a confessional booth. After he was dead, they removed the booth and put it into the basement of the clergy house. And then, years later, five people move into the house: Marvin, Debbie, Frank, Abigail and Bill.

Debbie (Wightman) is immediately annoying and immediately starts having visions and nightmares centered around the basement. Marvin (Stein), her asshole husband, dismisses her for the most part. And, spoiler alert, it’s really easy to figure out that Frank (Coates) is the one who is going to go crazy at some point in the future. There’s nothing really redeeming about this movie. It needs to be thrown on the scrapheap asap. The motive is stupid. There are no rules. The effects are terrible. It’s really almost unwatchable.

DJ didn’t watch it. How lucky for him.

My score: 16.
