Tim's Horror Tweet Reviews: "The Amityville Horror" Double Feature (1979 & 2005) | Slasher Studios
Our resident Twitter reviewer Tim Schilling is back with a double feature this time of both the original “Amityville Horror” as well as the well liked Ryan Reynolds “Amitville Horror” remake. This is the first time we have down a twitter review double feature so let’s see how it goes and let’s see which one of the two horror flicks Tim thinks is a cut above the other. The Amityville Horror (1979) Thoughts before the film: Original ‪#TheAmityvilleHorror‬. The remake will be the next movie I watch. I have never seen either, haunted house movies aren’t my thing. Actually, that’s a lie. I’ve seen the ending to this movie a bunch of times. One of my earliest horror movie memories. Thoughts while watching: 0:09 If the side of the house didn’t look like the freaking devil, I’d love to live in it. 0:16 Sneak into someone’s house, get attacked by flies. Karma, bitch. 0:17 That thing that screamed get out made me pee my pants. I dont do ghost movies cause they scare the shit outta me. 0:21 Dads in movies are always so brave to go down in the basement. Fuck that, I won’t go near the basement. 0:25 Little do they know, all the ghosties are watching them do the nasty. 0:29 If I wake up at 3:15 tonight I’m gonna cry. 0:34 Oh okay so my house used to have the same flooring as the house in this. Am I gonna be haunted tonight? 0:37 Nuns are overdramatic. 0:46 Nice headpiece. 0:48 Oh man she really wanted to get out of the closet. Her knuckles were bleeding after a minute. 1:00 George is getting a little grumpy. 1:10 This movie has way too much filler in it. 1:19 Jodi, your eyes scared me. You’re a jerk. 1:24 Hey lady you gotta pay for breaking my wall. 1:25 Oh no there’s something under the stairs. I need my dog right now. 1:28 Something as simple as turning the cross upside down is terrifying in this movie. 1:32 When horror goes all religion like, it freaks me out. I really don’t know why. 1:33 Like, that guy just went blind. What the heck! Que the creepy music. 1:34 Oh fuck me. Where were those drums coming from!? 1:36 Thank god my cat just came clawing at the door. He ain’t leaving my room. 1:47 What’s a pig doing in your house? 1:49 I bet they were waiting until the house started bleeding to finally decide to leave. 1:51 The dog asshole, get the dog! 1:53 It’s tar man from ROTLD! Final Verdict: After all of the horror movies that I have seen, ‪#TheAmityvilleHorror‬ is honestly one of the scariest. Even though it is really dated, it’s scarier than most crap that is made today. The Amityville Horror (2005) Thoughts before the film: Remake this time! Thoughts while watching: 0:04 I can never take Ryan Reynolds seriously. I just always think of him in Waiting and Just Friends. 0:08 The house isn’t as creepy looking as in the original. 0:15 I like that they have the same mirror in the bedroom as the original, they were unique and weird looking. 0:18 But I don’t like, is that they’re actually showing the ghosts… 0:19 I find it hilarious that this little girl ends up playing the bad ass Hit Girl in Kick-Ass. 0:24 Fuck ghost movies, not this again! 0:31 LOL, this babysitter. 0:34 I wouldn’t be able to stay in a house where people were murdered at. 0:46 Um what are you doing on the roof? 0:50 What I like a lot about the remake, is that the kids play a bigger part than they did in the original. 0:57 You killed the dog, you’re dead to me. 1:03 The guy saying GEEET OUUUT in this one totally failed, no way did it match the original one. 1:11 Why do all remakes have to try to be stylish? They all look exactly the same. Final Verdict: ‪#TheAmityvilleHorror‬ improved in some parts over the original a lot, which I thought was really good, but it went over the top when it tried to be as scary as the original. The entire ending didn’t work, & the fact you could see the ghosts this time made it less scary. To follow Tim on twitter: To follow Slasher Studios on twitter:
