The Amityville Curse (1989)

Director: Tom Berry

Stars:  Kim CoatesDawna Wightman,Helen Hughes  
A man enters a confessional booth and shoots the priest on the other side, then he kills himself in a house.  A couple purchase the house with three other friends to fix it up and make a huge profit.  The house needs a lot of work, so they spend the weekend to work on it themselves.  They start to see ghosts, demons and killer insects which drive them mad.  One of the guest becomes possessed by a demon and kills the others.
The movie has nothing to do with the Amityville house, except for the fact that it takes place in the same town.  The movie is hard to hard to watch simply because it is so bad.  They throw in some nudity to maybe keep people watching. I don't know. I would skip this one.  The real bad thing about it is that the ones made after are better than this one.  These people were something trying to make money off the name.

Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes (1989)

Director: Sandor Stern

Stars: Patty Duke, Jane Wyatt, Fredric Lehne                        

Two priest walk into a bar, no wrong story.  Two priest enter in the Amityville house to cleanse it once and for all.  As soon as they walk in and start praying all hell breaks loose and the demon enters into the power cord of a floor lamp.  You read that right.  The priest confirm the house is now rid of demonic spirits, so the owners sell all of the belongings left in the house.

Helen comes walking pass the sale and stops to look at the lamp and thinks it would be a funny gifts to send to her sister in California.  She cuts her thumb on the lamp and still buys it.  I think I would let a sharp lamp go, but she is old and has money to blow.

Nancy Evans, Patty Duke, and her three kids are on their way to live with her mother in California.  When they get to the house so does the lamp, at the same time.  Her mom, Jane Wyatt, greets Nancy and the kids with open arm, well the youngest girl hides away.

Everything start messing up in the house, and the grandmother says that it all started when her 
daughter and the kids showed up.  The two women have not been on the best terms over the years, so the tension flairs up.  The youngest child talks to the lamp thinking it is her dead father, but the demon just ends up talking over her body instead.

I know this was a TV movie, but there was no way I could not complete all of the Amityville movies.  This move was so fart fetched and stupid.  A demon goes for a ride in a lamp to mess up another family.  You could probably catch this movie on Life Time during Halloween.

The Bay (2012)

Director: Barry Levinson

Stars: Will RogersKristen Connolly,Kether Donohue                         

In 2009 a panic breaks out in a small town in the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.  Two researchers are testing dead fish in the bay, and a reporter from a blog is trying to find out what is happening to the people in the town.
This is a found footage movie which I normally cannot deal with watching.  This is one best ones that I have seen.  It is something that could happen or has happened.

The movie starts out showing real news footage of dead animals.  It flows in to showing the town getting ready for the Fourth of July weekend.  People start flooding the hospital with cases of severe skin rash and boles.  Comes to find out that the entire water supply and the bay is infested with isopods that  have mutated from companies dumping waste in the water.  They are eating people from the inside out.  It makes the scenes bloodier.

This could happen that is the scary part of the movie, and the gore.  This movie is pretty bloody.  There were a few slow scenes, but that is going to happen in any movie.  It was not that whole shaky camera crap that gives me a headache.  The one thing about these movies is who would be the ass that would keep filming if something like that really did happen.  Watch it.

The Lords of Salem (2012)

Director: Rob Zombie

Stars: Sheri Moon Zombie, Meg Foster, Bruce Davison, Patricia Quinn,  Dee Wallace

Heidi Hawthorne host a radio show with two other guys, so one night she gets a gift, a wooden box containing an album, which she thinks it from a band, The Lords.  The next night Francis Matthias, a writer on Salem witch history, is the guest for the night.  After Francis pushes his new book, the album that Heidi received is played.  Francis hears something familiar on the album.  Heidi has a physical negative experience from the album.

Heidi's landlady and her friends have a secret that involves Heidi.  The Lords are coming to town  and Heidi's radio show has the tickets, but Heidi does not know how involved she will be with the show.

Rob Zombie has made his fifth movie that barely made a squeak.  He brought back the late 60's early 70's witch movie.  Witches are a genre that most people have forgotten about, and it is probably because of the Harry Potter movies.

The cast for the movie is the usual lost horror actors and just forgotten actors from the past.  Of course Sheri Moon, Rob's wife, is the lead.  She does a better job in this movie that in the past.  She is not all squeaky and annoying.  She seems high, but her character is an ex meth head.  The lovely Dee Wallace is one of the witches.  I've missed her from horror movies.  Patricia Quinn is another one of the witches.  You know her from playing Magenta in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Even Bruce Davison plays Francis. I'm a fan of his.

I did not hate the movie, but I did not like it either.  It is mostly a visual movie.  The storyline is pretty small, but the movie looks great.  The satanic references, symbols and images were just overwhelming.  It was too much. He could have made the story longer.  One thing to notice is most of the scenes that Heidi was in the colors were black and white.  Even her apartment had overblown black and white images from classic sci-fi movies.  
Heidi's clothing was beyond vintage, but the rest of the movie was modern day, so I never was sure the time period.  It takes it was modern, and her character was just the coolest person ever.

Lots of old and fat full frontal naked women in the movie with some other odd sexual images.  I am just warning you.  The movie is worth watching.

Teeth (2007)

Director: Mitchell Lichtenstein

Stars: Jess Weixler, John Hensley, Josh Pais, Hale Appleman

Dawn is a normal high school student who is highly involved in the promise ring club, and I don't mean the band.  She and her friends have made the choice to never have any type of physical contact with a man till marriage. Dawn feels like she has a mutation in her body.  She does live next door to a nuclear power plant.  She has rows of teeth in her vagina, like a shark does.  She is a rare girl who needs to find the one guy to conquer her "teeth".

Tobey has joined the club to get closer to Dawn, so one afternoon he gets too excited with her and she bites off his penis, and he dies.  She now has a weapon to keep cruel mean off of her or they bleed to death.

This was an odd movie.  She goes to the doctor to get checked out, and when he examines her vagina, he takes off the glove and starts fisting her. I was shocked.  Her step-brother wants nothing but to have sex with her.  It is stranger, but watch the movie for yourself.  You will see a few guys getting their dicks bitten off.  Watch out boys.

Amityville 3-D (1983)

Director: Richard Fleischer

Stars: Tony Roberts, Tess Harper, Robert Joy, Lori Loughlin, Meg Ryan

John and Melanie are investigative reporters meeting an older couple that are renting the notorious house to scam people that are wanting to contact dead relatives.  The next day John is at the house with the owner talking pictures of the work the older couple had in the house.  John ends up buying the house at a great deal since him and his wife are separating.  He tells his wife Nancy, Tess Harper, and his daughter Susan, Lori Loughlin, so Susan goes to the house to pick out her bedroom, and her mother knows the history of the house and does not want her near it.

Susan's friend Lisa, Meg Ryan, stops by to see the haunted house for herself.  The night that John brought the house Melanie comes by to check on him, and she gets scared to death by the house and now will not go inside.  Susan friends decided to make a spirit circle to contact the spirits still living in the house.  Terrible events happen in the house to his friends and family by the demons that are still in the house.  It takes a team of paranormal scientists to convince him that here is something in the house.

This is considered a bad movie, but to hell with that, I love it.  It was in 3-D when it first came to theaters, but not in 3-D on DVD yet.  The 3-D scenes in the movie are few and not scary or frightening by any means, just mainly to show that they did it.  3-D was the new trend that was going on at the time.  There were several horror films that were coming out in 3-D.  The original subtitle for the movies was The Demon.

For a third chapter in a horror series, there are some up and coming actors in this movie.  This is Meg Ryan's second film and Lori Loughlin from Full House is in it.  Tess Harper was getting a name for herself and she did this movie.  The 80's were an interesting time for horror.

Amityville II: The Possession (1982)

Director: Damiano Damiani

Stars: James Olson, Burt Young, Rutanya Alda                        

Anthony and Dolores Montelli and their children have just moved into a new house which was built on an Indian burial ground.  The father is an abusive drinker while the mother is a good church going Catholic woman.  They have four children, two boys and two girls.  The father and oldest son fight and argue and the mother and oldest daughter get in between them to stop the fighting.  One night Sonny, the oldest son, hears his parents fighting so he puts a shotgun barrel under his father's chin.  This is when the fun really begins.

Sonny starts hearing a voice speaking to him through his headphones, saying "Why didn't you pull the trigger? Why didn't you shoot that pig?".  One night while Sonny is alone in the house, a demon enters his body and starts to take over his actions.  Several days later, he kills his entire family.  A priest helps his sees that a demon was responsible and not Sonny.

This was the best chapter in the entire Amityville series.  It still scares me to this day.  There are some messed up scenes in this movie.  The two older children have sex and they both want it, and they even talk about their parents sex life.  That is gross.

The two young kids just scream and hold each other a lot.  Boring! The scene where the brushes start painting demonic pictures on the wall is classic, so it makes the younger ones have a good scene.  Of course the father, all stupid and fat, comes in yelling at the kids and whips out a belt to let the beatings begin.  The kids wish that they could write in cursive that well.

The best scenes in the movie are the ones with Sonny.  When he is being possessed by the demon and his stomach is all bruised and gross and sinking in, love it.  When his face is all demonic when he kills his family and then when he is breaking out of the demon.

This is a great horror movie.  It is one to buy, and they need to put it out on blue ray!
