Galeras 🔥. I love her, but her hair was matted and tangled when I opened her up 😩. Had to untangle and boil wash her hair, & she shed a whole bunch too. Still think she’s beautiful ❤️
I'm not a big fan of ghosts, haunting, possession, paranormal, supernatural or demon type of films. Don't get me wrong, there are multiple films fitting this criteria I do like but for the most part I'm not very high on these particular genres. Recently I re-visited two films for the first time in years that I really enjoyed and rank amongst my favourites of these particular genres: The Amityville horror- 1979 and The Amityville horror 2- The Possession. I'll give a brief explanation as to why these two movies appealed to me in the genre that I don't take to frequently. I'm only discussing the films and judging them based on their own merit, I won't be discussing the "real" cases.
The Amityville horror- 1979. The Amityville house itself is very unsettling and fits perfectly into the movie, it's not deliberately over the top but it has enough creep factors to make you initially worried for the characters. The house has personality, thus making it a character within itself. George Lutz's seemingly caring stepdad is believable, whilst his slow decent into evil is paced perfectly and works well within the parameters of the film—yet if I'm being honest "The Shinning" done this much better. This film works perfectly in making you care for Kathy Lutz and her children, with the breakdown of the family unit due to demonic forces is the backbone of this movie and is done well. This movie never takes the cheap way out whilst making the scares worthwhile and fit therefore fit perfectly within the situations.
The Amityville horror 2- The Possession. This movie has a lot of disturbing elements that shows the depravity of humanity and is an interesting contrast between the demonic forces. The Montelli family obviously has some major issues before the demonic forces take hold, including physical abuse, sexual abuse and verbal abuse. The Montelli's are nothing like the Lutz's and are therefore more easily influenced and controlled by the evil. I find this film to be more entertaining than the original, but by no means is it a better made film. Each cast member of this family, especially Burt Young, are very convincing.
