Horror Review: My Amityville Horror (2013)

For the first time in 35 years, Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975.

For as long as I can remember I've always had a fascination with the infamous Amityville house, was it real? Was it a hoax? Who knows but finally we get to hear from one of the residents of the house, Daniel Lutz.

George and Kathleen Lutz's story inspired a best-selling novel and the many subsequent films have continued to fascinate audiences to this day. But what about the effect it had on the people that actually lived there? Especially children of a young age.

After 35 years Daniel Lutz finally shares his story with the world, it soon becomes no holds barred, no stone unturned as he finally gets everything off his chest. Here is a guy who has opened his world to us and he isn't holding back anything at all.

One thing that is clearly evident is the psychological damage it has done to Lutz, damage that still affects his everyday life almost 4 decades later. You can see the relief on his face when he vents his frustrations and anger that has been brewing inside him all these years, he finally gets to tell his side of the story.

Whether you believe him or not there's no denying that Lutz believes what happened to him and who are we to say it didn't, he lived it, we didn't. The one thing you can't doubt is that this is the most personal and touching testimony on the subject of the Amityville house to date.

"My Amityville Horror" is a very insightful and fascinating documentary into one of the most infamous houses on this planet, I highly recommend that if you get the chance you should watch it.
