The Amityville Horror

Decades after Jay Anson's creepy book (and the subsequent 1979 movie) were dismissed as a bad, money-grubbing hoax on the part of the Lutz family, the quintessential suburban legend returns to haunt a new generation of unsuspecting saps. Ryan Reynolds (Van Wilder, Blade III) takes over as the Lutz family patriarch, a dope who buys a big ugly house, is haunted by vague ghostly visions and thinks about murdering his family. This hip update throws in ten times the supernatural hokum, but very little of it sticks. 90 minutes R.
