Amityville 3-D

Amityville 3-D proudly announces that it is not a sequel to The Amityville Horror or Amityville II. Even so, there is hardly anything original about the picture. A new cast of characters and the addition of 3-D does little to pump new life, supernatural or otherwise, into this tired genre.

Amityville 3-D proudly announces that it is not a sequel to The Amityville Horror or Amityville II. Even so, there is hardly anything original about the picture. A new cast of characters and the addition of 3-D does little to pump new life, supernatural or otherwise, into this tired genre.

This time around a doubting tom journalist (Tony Roberts) and his partner (Candy Clark) expose a occult hoax only to have their intervention literally backfire on them.

Roberts ignores the warnings of Clark and his estranged wife (Tess Harper) and thinks nothing of the sudden death of the realtor (John Harkins). His teenage daughter (Lori Loughlin) and her friend (Meg Ryan) can’t resist the temptations of the house either, despite a series of strange occurrences.

The story itself, involving the daughter being swallowed up by the forces which apparently live in a well in the basement of the house, moves along at a snail’s pace enlivened from time to time by some nice special effects and 3-D images. Images tossed about by the ArriVision 3-D process include a man being engulfed by flies, a pole impaling a car and a free floating Frisbee. The film would have worked better played for laughs.
