    I saw "Amityville: The Evil Escapes" when it was a TV movie with that title. On VHS it was re-titled "Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes" and given a R rating, and on DVD it was re-titled again as "Amityville Horror: The Evil Escapes". I remember a DVD with the sixth movie removing the 1992 from the title, for some odd reason. Just putting this out there for anyone reading my words.

          Once you find out it's all fake, it just really makes it a bit of a slog. IMO, anyway.

            Yes, I find the first very slow these days. Even the second one, which is my favourite, is pretty slow. Prime example of a franchise that I don't quite understand why I watch them. I draw the line at anything that dates beyond the remake however. They're not big or clever.
            I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

              The Damiano Damiani directed Amityville 2: The Possession still holds up, in my opinion. Great film. Haven't seen these other ones in quite a while.

                I still like the first film, but it's been a few years since I've seen it. The third is fun. The fourth, sixth and eighth are all watchable. I can't stand the fifth and seventh, nor the 2005 remake. I haven't watched any beyond this, and I'm not sure I want to.

                    I meant to comment on your post when you first made it, because I wanted to recommend the 2017 Blumhouse production AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING, if you haven't seen it by now. I suppose a complaint could be lodged against it that it didn't really need to use this setting for its storyline, which involves an exploration of the fascinating phenomenon known as locked-in syndrome. I thought it was pretty memorable.
                    VHS will never die!
