Amityville: The Cursed Collection

In the late 80s the Amityville franchise was kept alive by a man named John G. Jones who wrote a series of books expanding the universe beyond the Lutz’s story. One of those books, Amityville: The Evil Escapes, provided the seed for several direct to video features loosely based on the evil that lurks in Amityville. You can read my review of it here. The concept that objects from the home were cursed and would bring misfortune to anyone who happened upon them allowed the series to venture far from Long Island and confines of 112 Ocean Avenue. I like to call these the Garage Sale series.

This month, Vinegar Syndrome brings these movies back in glorious hi-def in a gorgeous collector’s set called Amityville: The Cursed Collection. The set includes Amityville: The Evil Escapes, Amityville 1992: It’s About Time, Amityville: A New Generation and Amityville Dollhouse. Each disc has a 4k restoration, bonus features including cast/crew interviews and reversible cover art.

I had these movies on standard DVD and the transfers were mostly terrible, so I haven’t watched them in years. I’m anxious to relive The Garage Sale series and will certainly review them here. With Halloween on Thursday I know what I’ll be doing this week.
