Amityville III: the Demon
Film Review

3 out of 5

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.
