Movie Review

Ok, just watched “The Amityville Horror” (2005). Very bad. Number one, I can’t get over Ryan Reynolds as the dad. I just kept waiting for him to crack a joke. There was one saving grace about casting him though. The tub scene. Wow. What a hottie!

Number two, I don’t know what the fascination is with remaking old horror classics just because now we can add CGI and even more eye-popping special effects. Not saying the original was a classic, just saying. Leave well enough alone folks.

Number three, they spent way too much time on the whole Rev. Ketchum thing. I don’t remember that being in the original, but if it was, shame on them. There was no need to show the natives being tortured, etc. Just gore for the sake of gore.

So all in all, a big thumbs down from me. There’s two hours of my life wasted that I’ll never get back.
