Our Score
After exposing a pair of phoney spiritualists based in the notorious Long Island town, journalist Tony Roberts laughs at the legend and moves into the famous cursed Amityville house. Almost immediately, strange manifestations occur, resulting in unexplained deaths among his workmates and family, and he eventually uncovers a gateway to hell in the cellar. Decent special effects - rendered originally in highly effective 3D - dovetail neatly with director Richard Fleischer's creation of a creepy, claustrophobic atmosphere. A young Meg Ryan has a small role as a spooked teenager.

Summary

A sceptical reporter attempts to dispel the myths surrounding the infamous haunted house, moving in with his family to prove there is nothing to be afraid of. Naturally, his bravado soon fades, and they find themselves beset by all manner of terrifying happenings. Horror, starring Tony Roberts, Tess Harper and John Beal, featuring an early film appearance by Meg Ryan.
