Sickle aka Amityville: The Final Chapter – USA, 2015

Sickle is a 2015 American supernatural horror film directed by Geno McGahee (Rise of the Scarecrows: Hell on Earth; Scary Tales; Satanic Meat Cleaver Massacre; et al) and Forris Day Jr. from a screenplay by McGahee. The X Posse Productions stars Logan Lopez, Crystal Aya and Brent Northup.

The film is currently available on Amazon Prime, misleadingly retitled Amityville: The Final Chapter.

Michael Hart (Logan Lopez) has spent fifteen years in a psychiatric clinic for apparently murdering his babysitter with a sickle when he was twelve years-old.

Taking pity on Michael and refusing to believe he carried out the homicide, his Uncle Bill (Dave Sauriol) attempts to help his nephew rejoin society again by employing him at his garage.

However, his uncle also doesn’t believe Michael’s bizarre explanation that the real murderer was a seven-foot demon wearing a top hat. Meanwhile, an elderly reclusive rich neighbour named Crane (Brent Northup) does believe Michael’s version of events while a group of disparate paranormal investigators become involved in the case…

Reviews:

” …very successfully spins its own yarn and gets its very own story from wherever it’s borrowing from. This is thanks to a multi-layered script that though is not too complex to bore its audience to death, to a well-paced direction, and a competent cast…” Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash

” …while it won’t set the world of indie horror movies on fire, this is still a lot better than some of the recent ones I have seen.  With some good direction, interesting kills and a creepy performance from Lopez, this is definitely one that is well worth seeing…” The Curiosity of a Social Misfit

“What bothers me the most is that Sickle is slow yet it’s almost there, just below the mark where I think it would be considered great by myself and others in the indie horror scene. So, so close and so, so frustrating at the same time.” Horror Society

“Logan Lopez is very good in the lead and Crystal Aya is likable and smart and has many layers to her character and then there is Brent Northup who is creepy and has too much going on with his monies.” Chris Mackey

  1. “Not a huge fan of the Amityville movies, though.”

    That shouldn’t be a problem since this has absolutely nothing to do with Amityville. Someone slapped that on there after the fact to fool people into watching their lousy flick. I don’t think the word Amityville was even used in the movie.

  2. Well, the demon wearing the tophat definitely didn’t look like what I imagined just from the brief description. I haven’t seen this one. Not a huge fan of the Amityville movies, though.
