The Amityville legend lives on when a resident of a local boarding house dies under mysterious circumstances. Her two best friends, Brigitta and Bermuda, Bermuda’s sister Sentinel, and the owner of the boarding house, Ms. Ernie, are absolutely devastated. This is not helped by the arrival of an eccentric and crude detective who never takes off his cowboy outfit, Hank Denton. Tensions run high as the girls begin to suspect their friend Margaret may still be alive; and as the detective’s behavior becomes more out of control, the house itself may very well be turning on it’s residents.
“A House is Not a Home”. At least, not for the homes in these “Amityville Horror” films, that are filled with bad spirits. Every house has a story to tell. “The Amityville Horror” has become quite the franchise. The original film released in 1976 by director Stuart Rosenberg. Since then, it has spawned several sequels and remakes, as well as a television series. “Amityville: Vanishing Point” is the latest installment in the franchise. From director Dylan Greenberg and Disck Pictures.
The trailer for “Amityville: Vanishing Point” is very intense and confusing. It looks like it’s part movie, part found footage, part documentary. The source of the film appears to be Margaret, a woman who had disappeared, and every essence of the film relays back to her. This “Amityville” film also looks like it takes a very different path from the previous “Amityville” films, which usually takes place in a house that holds dark secrets.
The trailer for “Amityville: Vanishing Point” kind of reminds me of “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”. There is so much going on and so many different angles, that it’s hard to actually understand what angle it’s trying to take until you watch the film itself. I feel like there are several different stories or points-of-view condensed into one film, but it all eventually comes back to the source.
