Claiming that indefatigable and penetrating "voices" compelled him to perform the atrocious deed, DeFeo Jr. was found guilty on six counts of second-degree murder and, until now, he remains in the maximum-security Sullivan Correctional Facility, New York. However, a thick mystery shrouds the gruesome findings of the police. Did Ronald, indeed, plant the seeds of evil in the notorious Amityville House?

  • The Amityville Murders: I almost fell asleep

    Platypuschow2018-11-17

    Oh yay, another Amityville film! Because that's what 2018 needed *Sigh*. Starring a couple of industry veterans and former cast members of previous Amityville movies this dull lifeless effort has done nothing to reinvigorate a stale franchise or turn this dreadful year for movies around. Instead of covering the Lutz family as many of the previous have it tells the original story of the Defeo family building up to the tragedy that befell them. The trouble is alike the Lutz's we don't really know what happened and therefore a huge chunk of the movie is pure fiction and supernatural garbage. Ronnie Defeo went from room to room shooting his family as they lay in bed. The mystery being how none of them heard the gunshots, how they were all shot in bed (Blood stains proved they hadn't been moved) and why neighbours also were oblivious to what took place. Yes it's a mystery, no I don't believe it was demonic forces! The Amityville murders does have some good performances and it was fantastic to see Burt Young on screen in 2018, but it's so darn boring! For huge fans of the Amityville legend only I'd say. The Good: Dead Island trailer theme (Weirdly) Some good cast members Good performances in places The Bad: Criminally boring Just shouldn't exist Things I Learnt From This Movie: Mothers are more concerned with their kids art style than their drug use Changing the details in a true story makes perfect sense

  • The Amityville Murders: An accurate representation

    mrhalloween12019-03-04

    The Amityville Murders: An accurate representation of what it was like growing up in the 70s. Abusive parents bullying & beating their children, and finally one of them snapped. I'm surprised this kind of thing wasn't more common back then. No demons, devils or haunted house or other supernatural entities necessary. This isn't a bad addition to the series, but it's not "award winning" great either. The acting is good to mediocre, and the grandmother is by far the worst actor. The movie fills in a blank that's been left hanging for years bringing the series full circle. All in all, I'd say it's worth at least one viewing.

  • Déjà vu?

    claudio_carvalho2019-02-22

    "The Amityville Murders" is one of those movies that gives the sensation of dejavu to the viewer. The story is well-known by fans of horror movies and does not show anything new and does not surprise. The acting is not bad but watching this film is waste of time. My vote is four. Title (Brazil): Not Available

  • Shockingly good!

    reywal992019-03-11

    I was expecting little to nothing from this entry. Am not a huge fan of the series. Thought the original and the Ryan Reynolds reboot had their respective merits. Figured I could passively watch this while multi-tasking. To my surprise it was very good. By no means on any of my "all times" list but far better than I could have reasonably expected. Don't know how accurate it is--and the people that would know are not talking--but, assuming it is, it's a good account of the events that led up to the original film. If you are interested in a slow-burn thriller--ostensibly based on real events--check this one out.

  • Amityville...The chilling real story!

    shagee79772018-10-29

    Writer/Director brings us The Amityville Murders! This goes back to where it all started on the night of November 13, 1974. Ronald DeFeo Went on a killing spree killing his parents and siblings in cold blood as they slept! His defense the voices in the house made him do it! This movie is the real deal it is not like the sequels which are ridiculous or the now proven Lutz family BS. This actually happened and lives were lost. It is a terrible tragedy that befell the DeFeo family. There were a lot of variables the led to this. Maybe Butch combination of drugs and being in a family were the father was very abusive took him over the edge. But why kill the innocents. He claims he was possessed and he had no control. I had loved the original one this is based on and also includes 2 of those stars the lovey Dianne Franklin and Burt Young. The whole cast is very powerful and all are very convincing in there roles. A stand out is the eldest daughter who turns out to be the last survivor and is very effective up until the end. Everyone by now knows the story but this revisit brings to light all the actual events. The movie has a real feel and almost a documentary feel to it. Dianne Franklin play the daughter in the Original now plays the abused loving mom. I have not seen Dianne in awhile and missed her. She makes a great comeback and shows a range that tugs at tour emotions and really feel for her character. Paul Ben-Victor is disturbingly chilling and well cast at the abusive father and husband and is almost scarier then what is going on in the house. But the prize goes to John Robinson in his chilling Accurate Portrayal of Butch DeFeo. A sorrowful, torn and vengeful young man! The final moments of this are Such a payoff. It was carefully and well constructed as it built to the explosive ending. Yes we'll all know this story and how it ends. There was a movie and many specials but I feel this movie portrays this tragedy in the best light. Great lighting and shadows and imagery show more than what you actually see. The Director created a tense disturbing storyline that draws you from the beginning to the end. At first I was disturbed with the end scenes depicted the actual crime photos from the gruesome murders. But I feel the director wanted us to know yeah we just watched a movie about one of the most gruesome crimes in America history! But it was true and we should be reminded it was true and not just another Hollywood creation. I think after seeing those actual Death scenes it makes the movie even more effective and that they were actually real people that were killed. Very sad and very heart wrenching. This movie has to be seen to complete your Amityville movies and should be on top!
