'The Amityville Horror'
(Jimmy Bennett, Ryan Reynolds, Philip Baker Hall, Jesse James, et al / PG / 92 mins / MGM)

Overview: In this horror remake, residents of a Long Island, N.Y., suburb are terrorized by a haunted house in which a disturbed man murdered his family recently.

Verdict: On a positive note, low-key creepy rather than outright scary, the new "Amityville" marks a modest improvement over the original, partly because, from acting to bloody effects, it is better executed. Shorter and punchier but nearly as hokey as the original, the movie is a procession of unregenerate B-level goosing. But there's definitely a smirk beneath the muck! Basically, you'll get exactly what you expected: Scared and tickled, within an inch of your life!
