The Amityville Horror

 (2005)

The Amityville Horror Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

In November 1974, a family of six was brutally murdered. Now, a year later, an unsuspecting young couple and their children move into the house that was the site of the horrific event and is now haunted by a murderous presence. What follows is 28 days of unimaginable terror. With demonic visions of the dead and relentless screams of terror, this is the haunted house story that isn't just a movie - it's real.

For more about The Amityville Horror and the The Amityville Horror Blu-ray release, see the The Amityville Horror Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Melissa George, Jesse James, Jimmy Bennett, Chloë Grace Moretz, Rachel Nichols
Director: Andrew Douglas

The Amityville Horror Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

If there's one benefit to this slick remake it's that it looks terrific on Blu-ray, with a crisp 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, framed fairly closely to the film's original 2.39:1 aspect ratio. Horror films have an understandable reputation for being bleak, dingy affairs, but this one is almost vibrant in comparison, with dense autumnal colors in early outdoor scenes, balanced skin tones, and a vivid bluish cast as the film moves toward its rainy climax. Black levels are deep, contrast is strong—without going into the realm of the overly stylized—and darker scenes often have surprisingly revealing shadow delineation. The image is satisfyingly resolved as well, with readily visible fine detail in facial features and clothing texture, like the weft of the shawl that George wraps around himself while watching Super-8 films down in the basement. A thin layer of grain gives some warmth to the image, and there are no signs of DNR, overzealous edge enhancement, or other unnecessary tinkering. Aside from occasional softness and some mild color fluctuations during certain scenes—like the rooftop sequence—I can't really dredge up any complaints. All in all, the picture is sharp, clean, and cinematic.


The Amityville Horror Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I could say the same for the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which lives up to the horror movie expectations for creepy-crawly, heebie-jeebie sound design. The fact is, the few scares that The Amityville Horror generates are the direct result of its emphasis on loud, jarring sounds—accompanying imagery that would only be mildly disturbing on its own—and while this in a cheap narrative cop-out, it does provide some great immersive moments for your home theater system. The rear channels are used to strong effect here, both in quiet scenes, where the soundfield is filled with ambience—rustling wind, leaves skittering across the yard, hard rain, disembodied voices floating out of air vents—and in the more outright horrific, jump-out-of-your-pants sequences, where impressionistic swooshes and demonic sounds circle from one speaker to the next. Likewise, the music by Steve Jablonsky has plenty of dramatic oomph, and taken as a whole, the track is well balanced, with grounded low-end and clean highs. Dialogue, throughout, is clear and easy to understand. Optional subtitles are available in easy-to-read white lettering.
