    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "i hope the first films transfer/print is much improved. if it is, i won't mind double dipping as the film continues to be a guilty pleasure for me. curious about the trailer(s) for this film- i seem to recall seeing a teaser for this and the way i remembered it was shots of newspaper...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    I saw the article on DVD Answers....wow...this is what I was waiting for...but I have some concerns, friends: -First of all, this is far from complete because there is still Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes (which I own on DVD and looks and sounds great for made for TV film), Amityville 1992...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    Steve, Are you SERIOUS? This is GREAT news! How did MGM get rights to II and III, though? Oh, well, yeah....II was originally Orion, right, and so was III....so that would make sense that the Lion would put out a box set trilogy.....I GOTTA go check this out now....thanks a lot man!

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    Mike, I live just minutes from the real house in Long Island and go there often just to check it out; it has changed much since the events of the Amityville Horror in the 1970s...I dont think Ryan Reynolds was a good choice for this remake; I mean, American International casts James Brolin in...

    Yes, I know, and I mean how are you running it if not in mono one channel......

    This is a mono track; how are you running it?

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    I cannot believe this....I just watched a trailer for the upcoming Amityville Horror remake online, and not only does the house look nothing like the real 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville (which we knew already), but the beginning of the trailer actually gets the ADDRESS OF THE HOUSE WRONG....it...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    Scott, Are you running the mono track through the center channel only? I can detect a great deal of lack of dynamics on the track and some distortion when voices get raised, etc; its not the best mono mix in the world. I would sure love some kind of 5.1 remix along the lines of MGM's Escape...

    Very cool Steve....thanks a mil! PS Did you ever let me know where in Vegas you are located? My parents live in Henderson; are you far from there? I have been contemplating moving there for years now, but never seem to make it...do you like it there?

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    Thanks Jon, I'll have to look into this when I have a second to breathe! The main question for me is, getting back to the point of the post, will MGM do a Special Edition of Amityville Horror, with full blown 5.1 perhaps, in conjunction with the remake coming in '05. The ideas for the box art...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    And Rat Shack sells them? I think at this point Im probably gonna end up just waiting for the (hopefully) eventual Region 1 release of AT LEAST The Amityville Horror remaster...keeping my fingers crossed on Amityville II and III ever making it here....

    Oh, a Cyberhome is only a portable player? There are no home players they sell at the Rat Shack?

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    Wow... I just checked out that article on Zeta Minor, and it claims that the UK Special Edition of The Amityville Horror (while not confirmed at all) is supposed to contain LOADS of extras on this case....INCLUDING the History Channel documentaries I mentioned in my first post: "AMITYVILLE...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "The BBFC have already begun to classify special features for a new DVD edition of the original in the UK, so of course we'll be seeing it in R1 also to tie in with the remake. See www.zetaminor.com for info. The new R2 AMITYVILLE II disc is great. The R2 AMITYVILLE 3-D disc doesn't have a...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "I have to agree with Pat. The Amityville Horror isn't above Halloween, so why shouldn't it get a 5.1 makeover as well? And I'm getting SICK AND TIRED of other regions getting apparently better discs than us! Don't give me that "just buy a non region DVD player" stuff either. Why does Japan get...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "Why wait? You can pick up a multi region player for $20 or $30. Less than a lot of DVDs." Are you SERIOUS? $20 or $30 BUCKS? For the PLAYER? "True, but to a lot of people around here, the original soundtrack is the most important thing. Any remixing or anything of the sort is akin to...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "Parts 2 and 3 just got released in R2 DVD, part 3 in both flat and 3-D versions (it comes with glasses). Great transfers on both. The Part 2 DVD has an excellent essay on the story of the house. And as for the soundtrack on 1, wasn't it released to theatres that way? It was before...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    David, Interesting piece on the Amityville Horror....but when they say "European 5.1 tracks," do they mean there is actually an ENGLISH 5.1 track available for this film? If so, why didnt MGM use this on their Region 1 DVD release???

    "Check out Film&Video magazine this month. They have a story about film audio restoration that includes a few comments about a 5.1 track on this film." David, Thanks for the info...I'll have to check that out....

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "Which house are they using for the remake? The one in the original film wasn't the real house, but a look-alike in Toms River, NJ. When I first visited the real house, it threw me off a little beacuse I was used to how it looked in the movie." Jeff, I live 10 MINUTES from the real...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "this is a guilty pleasure of mine also, but i think the transfer is bad...or at least very weak. the thing should have been 16:9 enhanced at least (the R2 is, iirc), and i wouldn't mind a few extra features as well. pre-produced docs on the real incident would be a great value added addition."...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    Living just minutes from the real infamous "haunted house" in Long Island, New York that inspired the events of Jay Anson's novel "The Amityville Horror," I have always been intrigued by the story of Ronald De Feo, the murders of his family, his subsequent claims of "demonic possession" that...
