Yes, I am feeling a bit blue, but I an still going to write this review!!

"There are no bad houses, just bad people," is the quote that one of the main characters state as he and his family finally decides on purchasing a huge house in Amityville. However, curious to learn that the house is selling at such a low price, the new owner decides to inquire about it. He learns about the family that lived in the house prior to their arrival and how one of the members of the family went crazy and killed everyone else. This is where the story begins to make hairs stand up in the back of your head. The new unsuspecting family move into the house and day by day learn of the horrible secrets that lie within the house. Within 28 days, each member in the family experiences some extraordinary phenomenon and the truth comes out that the house is taking over their lives in the house.
The film has some gory scenes, no doubt, but it is not the goriness that is frightening. Similar to "based no true story" films, like "The Exorcist," "Amityville Horror" touches on the fact that a house, filled with evil, can corrupt innocent minds. It is knowing this fact and watching how the director takes this fact and displays it on the screen is the true horror that lies within the film. The film is easy to follow, but the secret of the house does not unfold until the end of the film, so be warned there is much more to the house then what you see in the first 15 minutes. A lot more, and throughout the film, you are kept in the dark about it. However, just as the horror unfolds, the history does too, and before you know it, you realize that the house is nothing but pure evil, regardless of what you may think earlier.
Trust me, this film is gripping. The story behind the house mesmerizes you. The film does not waste time with trying to build a plot before you find out about the horror, but puts you in horror's living room, with evil serving you black tea. You stay still and watch as the family changes and how the house affects them psychologically. This film may not leave you with the, "I can't go to sleep" feeling, but it will make you think about may issues and scenes, like why the little girl ghost makes her human friend try to commit suicide? What is the true motive of that scene? Is it for what the human girl character stated, or was there a hidden motive lying behind the ghost's words? That is just one of many questions that fill my mind while watching and after watching this film. If you like horror, check out this film!!

things could be better, but nonetheless, I enjoyed this film. I really want to hear your opinion about this movie. I have always felt that women who enjoy horror films are just unique and special, so when you do see it, you have to tell me your opinion.
