AMITYVILLE IN THE HOOD (2021) Reviews, trailer and release news



Amityville in the Hood is a 2021 American horror film in which a criminal gang uses the cursed Amityville property to grow their marijuana. However, it soon makes its way to the streets where it is giving users a killer buzz…

Directed by and starring Dustin Ferguson (Zombi VIII: Urban Decay; Apex Predators; Ebola Rex vs. Murder HornetsRattlers 2ArachnadoAmityville Toybox) [as Dark Infinity] from a screenplay co-written with Jerimiah Douglas (Axed to Pieces; Meathook Massacre Part VI: Bloodline). Produced by Rob Hauschild.


The SCS Entertainment movie also stars Jennifer Nangle, John R. Walker, Ken May, Thom Michael Mulligan, Allie Perez, Pat Kusnadi, Erik Anthony Russo and “Knife” Sotelo.


Although this purports to be a new production most of the horror content is comprised of chunks of footage taken from Dustin Ferguson’s previous Amityville Toybox and Amityville Clownhouse films.


“Look, it’s basically an hour of your life. This week has been horrible and this is the first time that I laughed in some time, if only when the cymbal-playing monkey started slapping his percussion together and the ghost of Mario Bava showed up in the lighting. This is my 38th trip to Amityville, not my last and not my worst.” B&S About Movies

“A lot of shots consist of random nothing like addresses on houses, wine bottles on top of cabinets, and spinning ceiling fans. And that’s only the quick cutaways. There’s also what feels like 40 minutes of montages featuring tents on sidewalks, parked cars, fences around apartment buildings, and more pointless padding that could stuff seven warehouses full of mattresses.” Culture Crypt

“The main plot is lousy enough, but including clips from a previous Amityville dud only worsens the experience. An all-around lazy effort that exists for reasons unknown, but the name of the weed is amusing so there’s that.” Splatter Critic


In the US, Wild Eye Releasing released Amityville in the Hood On-Demand (VOD) on December 10th 2021.
