Frame By Frame Brutality - Amityville : A New Generation

Let's be honest here. Even if you get queasy at the slightest hint of blood or violence in the real world, you get a thrill out of people getting seriously maimed and brutalized onscreen ... it's one of the reasons we all love to watch horror movies and there aint nothin' wrong with that. Chances are you've encountered many gore scenes in your days of horror movie watching that have been so kickass and happen so quickly that you can't help but hit the rewind button on your remote and watch them over again, sometimes several times and oftentimes even in slow motion. Sometimes watching those scenes of carnage in slow motion, frame by frame, exposes some pretty shady effects work that you wouldn't have otherwise noticed at the intended frame rate and other times you can't believe your eyes at how real it all looks ... so you inevitably end up watching the scene a few more times. Don't feel bad about it, we all know you only do it so you can admire the great special effects on display. At least, we hope that's why ...

Well in this new feature here on Freddy In Space i've decided to do the work for ya, screengrabbing brutal scenes of violent gore on a frame by frame basis, from the moments of impact to the horrifying end results. Though Amityville : A New Generation is a fairly crappy sequel, there's one incredibly brutal and memorable scene in it which sees a character killing his entire family in his dreams, a scene meant to echo the brutality of the real life DeFeo murders that the Amityville movies all stem from. This is one of those scenes that is pulled off so well, even in slow motion, and looking at it frame by frame really captures how the scene was done. So enjoy this first installment of Frame By Frame Brutality, ya sick bastard!

Murderously problematic, hideously objectionable, and totally unacceptable. (BUT BLOODY GOOD FUN ALL THE SAME).
