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.
I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero.
1. My favorite place in the world is Atlantic City. The food, the smells, the beach - I love it all.
2. I am particularly good at crafting. Especially scrapbooking and cross-stitch.
3. I am mixed. My dad is black and my mom is white. I'm very proud of both sides of myself.
4. My favorite food is either the cheesesteak or the hoagie. Not the sub, not the grinder, the hoagie. Totally different experience.
5. I have a number of pen pals I write snail mail to. We exchange stickers and little gifts sometimes, too. I have an extensive sticker collection.
6. I just reconnected with my father after 15+ years. It's going great so far. I've missed him.
7. My brother is my best friend, hence the reason we do this together.
8. I don't have a favorite book. I like too many to have a favorite. But Paul Zindel is my favorite author. Stephen King and Jane Austen are close seconds. I know, eclectic.
9. I'm not very religious at all. I consider myself agnostic.
10. I would say that my most prized possessions are my dogs, but I don't consider them possessions. I consider them people. They are my people.
