When Cinema Fiasco hosts Geoff Wallis and Janet A. McLeod first saw The Amityville Horror (1979) it scared the pants off them. It was 1980 and they were unworldly five year olds who found cat throwing and toilets that coughed up black stuff genuinely terrifying.
Now that they’re all grown up and fully versed in the craft of exploitation filmmaking, Janet and Geoff are only too happy to revisit this timeless classic and expose it as the laugh-a-minute romp it truly is.
The Amityville Horror tells the “true story” of a family that moves into its dream home only to discover the place is already occupied by ghosts and demons and blowflies and a giant invisible pig. All sorts of terrible things happen (like the lights going on by themselves) and Rod Steiger and James Brolin have a full-on bad acting competition which Rod wins thanks to a scene in which he shouts at a church and it blinds him with falling masonry. There’s also a fabulous spewing nun scene.
So if you fancy a good old scream (from laughter more than anything) join Janet and Geoff for another hilarious night of bad movie appreciation at Cinema Fiasco. The movie may scare you. The hosts definitely will.
The Amityville Horror will be presented with LIVE COMMENTARY THROUGHOUT. So there!

Giant lizard gives Australian man a fright – then a photo op
A 1.5m long goanna gave a man a fright when it scaled the outside of his home. Eric Holland had been working in his shed in Thurgoona, New South Wales, when he saw the unexpected visitor darting across his property. Holland, who managed to snap a picture of the goanna, said: “I saw movement as I came out of the shed and I had a look and thought, bloody hell what is this thing? When I recovered from the shock I went inside and got a camera.” Goannas are often found in eastern Australia but generally live in the bush. They are typically wary of humans but are considered potentially dangerous on account of their bite. This one, thought to be a lace monitor goanna, hasn’t been spotted since it scampered away. A spokesman for the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage said the lace monitor could grow up to two metres in length and weigh up to 20kg.
