Join the crew from Rifftrax live as they riff Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes in theaters on October 26, just in time for Halloween. For those who don’t know, Rifftrax is the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew of Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy. I’ve seen a few of the live shows and they are worth going to if you can make it. Here’s their breakdown of Amityville 4:
There’s still evil up there at the old Amityville house. A group of priests gathers to quell the demon that has long plagued this lovely five-bed, four-bath Dutch Colonial full of old-world charm and lots of curb appeal. BUT – the evil escapes! Which should have been made obvious by the movie’s title. And how does it escape? Like all evil does: by possessing a tacky floor lamp, getting sold at a garage sale and shipped to Los Angeles, where most evil household décor eventually finds a home.
Soon the demonic floor lamp begins its reign of terror in the home of an innocent family, killing pets and home repairmen, forcing children to use power tools in unsafe ways, and possessing the soul of the youngest sister Jessica, who immediately begins to act like a total jerk.
It’s up to the young priest Father Kibbler to save the family and confront the evil lamp, face-to-bulb, before more people die. Okay, more people DO die, but can Father Kibbler finally put an end to it?
It sounds amazing. You can check if a theater near you will be hosting this event and get tickets here.
