This movie was set in 2014, but Belle's username in the movie poster in Instagram-style says she is '99. However, in the movie it's mentioned she's 17 which would mean she was born in '97. See more »
Obviously the average crtic thinks that a movie with the Amityville name should never ever happen again especially when it's a bigger budget film. Well they did and did an amazing job. This movie proved many critics wrong so much that it was prevented from being released for years. A 5.1 on IMDb? I think not!! A solid 6.8 definitely.
It's a shame us horror fans were punished because of egos and Hollywood bs. If you go in to this just wanting to be entertained and not thinking what should and shouldn't be you'll whole heartedly enjoy this film. Obviously there was no one that moved in to the amityville house that was based on any character in this movie. But I don't care same way I didn't care that penny wise is a fictional character
