Review: The Amityville Horror (1979)

“Houses don’t have memories.”

James Brolin and Margot Kidder

More Amityville Artwork!


The internets are full of artists reimagining classic movie posters to the delight of film geeks everywhere.

I will admit I’d love to see someone use the 1979 movie house in one of these but I ain’t bitchin. You can pick one of these up for yourself by visiting their online store. Act fast though, this is a limited run.
