Amityville in Space (2022)

Part of the Amityville Horror series
0.5/5

They say there are more films titled “Amityville something” than there are galaxies in the whole universe. They are right. Amityville is the name of a town and can’t be copyrighted or trademarked, so anyone can make an Amityville film. Some say that there were only seven sequels to the original The Amityville Horror (1979), Amityville Dollhouse (1996) being the last, while others (like IMDb) count Amityville: The Awakening (2017) as a sequel. Most everyone agrees that all the rest are just knock-offs.

Most of them aren’t even knock-offs—just random (incredibly) cheap horror films that the producers slapped “Amityville” in the title of. Amityville in Space at least features the house. It opens with it, as a priest tries to exorcise it and it ends up in space and found by a motley crew of astronauts who are flying around in a spaceship. The spaceship’s interior looks exactly like a rented office space in Pennsylvania. What follows is some nonsense.

An actual shot from the film.

The film was made by the Polonia brothers. They make mockbusters with zero budget. Imagine if Asylum made their pictures with the pennies they found in garbage cans, and then you can imagine what kind of picture this is. Some of their other films are Dune World (2021), Empire of the Apes (2013), Cocaine Shark (2023), Conjuring Baba (2022) and five other films with “Amityville” in the title.

Now, I don’t judge a film by its budget if it was an earnest endeavor in film making. These films aren’t made for the love of films. They are rushed crap, produced just in hope that someone mistakes them for real films on streaming services that have no standards in what they offer. There is nothing redeeming about them. They aren’t “so bad they are good,” they are just bad. They are the equivalent of a Chinese knock-off you buy for a few cents on AliExpress.
