‘Something is going wrong in these woods…’
Amityville: Mt. Misery Road – formerly Mt. Misery Road – is a 2018 American found footage horror feature film directed by and starring Chuck and Karolina Morrongiello from a story by the former. Curtis Wyka also stars.
Charlie and his girlfriend Buzi are ghost enthusiasts fascinated by the legend of the oldest and scariest road in America – Mt. Misery Road located in Long Island, New York. This road and the surrounding woods are believed to be haunted and cursed for hundreds of years.
From the old asylum that was burnt down by a deranged patient named Mary that still roams the woods today, to the spirits and voices of asylum patients crying and moaning through their suffering still heard echoing in the woods, to the hellhound with his red glowing devilish eyes and the mothman sighted flying in the trees. The couple loves all these stories.
When being warned by a random drunk they met in a bar to stay away from there, they still make plans to visit the road, get spooked and have fun.
The couple continues their happy adventure until they realise they got into the whirlpool of paranormal activities in the evil woods. The old uneasy spirits from the burnt asylum, ghosts and creatures imprison them…
Reviews [click links to read more]:
“It does take some effort to make a film, even one as astoundingly bad as this one. So I can’t hate on it. Some people like to dress up their dogs. Other like to flip homes. It seems like Morrongiello’s like to use their iPhones to make movies about ghosts.” B&S About Movies
“If anything is to be taken away from Amityville: Mt. Misery Road, it is how important at bare minimum a decent script and believable actors truly are. A film where literally nothing happens can work, but there needs to be something to pull the audience in and not make the task of watching feel like a waste of time.” Cryptic Rock
“It’s not worth it at all. Every minute of this movie is a chore. The worst movie with the Amityville name attached? It’s a very strong contender.” Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
“The last twenty minutes are pretty creepy, the story of the road itself is enticing […] Chuck and Karolina produced a horror film that doesn’t need to rely on gore and jump scares, and although it’s tame with its material, it paints a very different picture of Long Island than the one we’re used to.” Horror Society
“It has the kind of innocence that puts a smile on your face. The budget is nonexistent. Shots are split in the midst of fascinating bits of dialogue, the camera zooms for no reason, and the subjects are framed randomly. I’ve seen many no-budget films, I’ve seen many kinos, but this is something else.” Tales of Terror
Chuck Morrongiello: “Wow! I’ve never seen snow. It’s amazing!”
