The Amityville Horror

A tedious, lamebrained horror movie (1979), which begins with the promising premise of a haunted house in the suburbs (poltergeists in the barbecue pit?) and quickly degenerates into a display of pretentious camera angles by director Stuart Rosenberg. Someone should buy this man a tripod—he can't seem to get his camera off the floor. Or his drama, either: the effects are spare and limp. With James Brolin, Margot Kidder, and Rod Steiger.
