Horror movies get the reboot treatment quite often. It’s very rare that the remake outdoes the original, but I feel like 2005’s The Amityville Horror, starring Ryan Reynolds, Melissa George, and a tiny Chloe Moretz, is the exception that proves the rule. After my recent re-watch, I decided to share the 7 reasons why it’s a better film than the 1979 original. I think you’ll find them all to be sound, provable, and concise.
