Sorry, why's it hilarious?

Evil Escapes is in the top 5 best Amityville films.

I just wanted to say. Anyone who thought this movie was hilarious really needs some help. The family went through huge trauma with the father who had died. Then the young daughter is being possessed and the mother has to go through the possibility she is seriously mentally ill. The demon even dispatches the family parrot.

Lamp or not there were some serious issues brought up in this film and its always overlooked.

It's a movie, a completely fictional movie.

It is also hilariously ridiculous.

Phelous' review is spot on at highlighting the silliness of it.

For the points I mentioned above it isn't

Your narrow field of view of fictional movies does not serve you.

To be somewhat fair to Amityville 4, the family based drama side of things was done surprisingly well. The lamp part of it is pretty ridiculous and the movie is barely able to even take itself seriously at times.

A good quote from another review of the movie sums it up pretty nicely:

"The Evil Escapes comes perilously close to acknowledging its own idiocy when the younger priest retorts, “On what basis? A satanic force has taken possession of a lamp!?”"

A slightly less mocking review which is very much worth reading as it highlights some of the major "WTF" moments in the movie.

Still, I happen to quite like Amityville 4, once you get past the silliness it is a half decent effort.

As far as YouTube movie review channels go this guy was okay. Although I tend to think that his take on the movie leans towards poking fun at the silliness of the movie premise. Yes we know the Amityville franchise is born from a true story but the lamp movie being fictionalised leans towards the absurd and even better is I think how the movie tries to take itself seriously and fails dismally.

Linkara, another YouTube reviewer and a friend of Phelous, reviews the entire series. His take is hilarious and pretty interesting as well. Check it out
