If you haven’t seen either of the two movies or aren’t familiar with the real-life incident, I’m sure you would recognize the iconic house that is at the center of the stories. The colonial style home is iconic due to the twin arched windows placed near the roof line that give the appearance of the house having eyes. Recently, the arched windows were removed from the real life home but the image is still burned in the minds of horror fans who remember the classic film. In 1979, The Amityville Horror was released and was based on real life occurrences that occurred in Long Island, NY. Apparently a father killed his entire family in the old house one night while they slept and went on to say he was possessed by demons. Flash forward a bit and the Lutz family then moves in brushing off any fear or doubts about the house. Suffice to say, bad things begin to happen. Ryan Reynolds starred in a creepy and memorable remake of the same name in 2005. There have been many debates regarding what exactly happened and what was fictionalized by the movies and the book (Jay Anson’s 1977 book The Amityville Horror: A True Story) with which they stemmed from. Now, a documentary is coming out that recounts what happened through someone who actually was involved in the events: Daniel Lutz. My Amityville Horror shows interviews with the now adult Lutz who was a young boy when his family moved into the doomed home. The film is set to make its premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal this Sunday. The Playlist has the new poster for the film that can be seen below.
