Just a quick reminder that Amityville Week kicks off tommorow here on Freddy In Space, a weeklong journey through the seven Amityville Horror sequels that will finally force my ass to get in gear and actually sit down and watch them all ... most of them for the very first time. As I said, there will also be some other little goodies including a giveaway and a rundown of a couple future Amityville film projects that are currently in the works. Should be a fun ... I mean, totally nerve shattering and frightening ... little week!
In preparation I re-watched the original Amityville tonight, which I hadn't done in a few years. Though it is fairly slow moving and admittedly a tad boring at times, I absolutely love watching that movie and getting swept up in the super creepy atmosphere of it all. I love Margot Kidder's little scantily clad stretching scene. I love James Brolin's beard. I love how he makes tighty whiteys look cool. I love that haunting score. I love the kickass headgear the babysitter sports. I love watching that nun shoot hoops. I love those little clay-like growths Kidder spawns on her face after she touches the upside down cross. I just love it all!
By the way I know i've mentioned this a few times in the past, but I actually live about 45 minutes from the house where the infamous Amityville murders took place in. Naturally, i've been to the location a couple times. Before I watch and review Amityville 2 tommorow, TAKE A TRIP WITH ME back to the very first time I visited the house back in 2009!
See ya tommorow!
