Nothing great, only the eye-like windows were creepy n Brolin’s performance was good
Saw this on a VHS in the mid 80s. Revisited it recently on a DVD. To be honest, i found the movie to be tedious n tame then. Now i jus forwarded some boring scenes. The film opens on a dark and stormy night as we hear gunshots and see flashes of light through the home’s famous eye-like upstairs windows as an entire family is killed. A new family moves in after a year n unsettling things begin to occur. Ther are scenes where the walls drip blood. Was it blood or tar i don’t know. Whose blood it was or where it came from was never explained. There’s a hidden room in the house the dog always barks at. In one scene James Brolin climbs the stairs above that room, only to fall through them and into a pit of the same blood/tar. Was that suppose to be comedic? Also the scene involving Rod Steiger with the flies wasn’t scary at all. The movie was boring considering the length n nothing happens. Somewhere around 01.16, Josh Brolin breaks open a wall n his facial expressions n eyes r epic scene man. What he sees that makes him so startled, we never come to know n we don’t get to see also. The film is helped by an extremely creepy score composed by Lalo Schifrin n Brolin delivered a good performance. Margot Kidder did a decent job.

This is one of the horror movies that gets as much as it can out of those “things that go bump in the night.” A family of a woman with her two boys and one daughter and her recently wed husband move into a steal of a deal house where, oh by the way, a year ago a guy blew his parents and siblings away. The story is the story of the family that buys the house after the Defeo killings – the Lutzes. They were consultants on the film and their 28 days in the house serve as the basis for the script. Both now – strangely perhaps – are no longer with us having died in the mid-2000s. Anyway. The house it appears is haunted – perhaps a gateway to Hell or the place of an Indian burial ground or the property of a former Salem Witch. Who knows? But what I do know is that director Stuart Rosenberg who directed films like The Pope of Grenwich Village, Voyage of the Damned, and the awesome Cool Hand Luke along with mega-producer Samuel Z. Arkoff make one heck of an atmospheric film here and bring to the screen one of the most menacing, sessile monsters in film to us – the Amityville House. The house looks haunted and creepy. Rosenberg does a great job feeding that tension to the viewers with scenes that are subtle and then go way over the top. High production values( for an Arkoff film – I once heard him say this movie was one with which he had the most pride) and credible acting from leads James Brolin and a very perky and pretty Margot Kidder along with Don Stroud, Murray Hamilton, and Val Avery and a mega-performance from Rod Steiger as Father Delaney who goes out to the house and is treated to flies, voices, vomit, and a burning hand holding a phone later all make this film one worth seeing. Steiger is a slice of ham to be sure but his scenes were for me some of the most memorable if but for nothing more than his commanding voice with dubious dialog. The Amityville Horror is fraught with continuity issues and stretches of logic and relies way too heavily on feeling rather than story, but it stays afloat nonetheless and would spawn several sequels – none rivaling it in any category.
