The Amityville Horror

 (1979)

The Amityville Horror Blu-ray despite solid video and great audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

George and Kathy Lutz, a newly married couple with three children from Kathy's previous marriage, purchase a large house in Amityville, New York, where a multiple murder took place the year before. Strange things happen as soon as they move in. Father Delaney, Kathy's friend and priest, is stricken ill when he tries to bless the house, and he becomes convinced that Kathy and her family are in danger. The policeman who investigated the original murders notices an odd resemblance between George Lutz and the man convicted of those crimes. Based on a true story.

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 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: James Brolin, Margot Kidder, Rod Steiger, Don Stroud, Murray Hamilton, Natasha Ryan

The Amityville Horror Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Whatever one's opinion of the film, there is nothing to fault with the Blu-ray presentation of The Amityville Horror, which doesn't necessarily mean every viewer will like it. What you get on the 1080p, AVC-encoded disc is an image much like you'd expect to see if you went to a movie theater in 1979 to catch the latest release from American International Pictures, which was one of the leading independent producers of the era. You didn't expect glossy, super-sharp images from A.I.P., and you rarely got them. The Blu-ray's image is moderately grainy, but the grain looks natural, neither artificially reduced nor digitally manipulated into odd patterns that "hang" or "clump". Detail is sufficiently well-reproduced that you can always make out the fine patterns of the terrible Seventies fashions and, in too many instances, the unconvincing makeup on James Brolin and Rod Steiger.

Colors are natural-looking, though somewhat on the pale side. Black levels are generally good, though night scenes and dark interiors sometimes look more gray than black, a phenomenon I attribute more to the original photography than to "crushing". Compression artifacts were non-existent, as this is fairly undemanding material.


The Amityville Horror Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 remix, presented in DTS lossless, of the original mono soundtrack aggressively moves specific sounds into the surround field and is surprisingly effective. Examples include the sound of George Lutz chopping wood, the family dog barking, and various slamming doors. (It's the isolation of these sounds that gives them such impact.) Major sound sequences like the opening storm take full advantage of the multi-channel system to register their presence, while dialogue remains anchored to the front (most of the time) and always clear. Bass extension is relatively modest, which is undoubtedly a limitation of the source material. Lalo Schrifin's original score supplies as much atmosphere as it can.
