Fangoria Reviews My Amityville Horror

myamityvillehorrorrevthumb Fangoria Reviews My Amityville HorrorFANGORIA, Jul 23, 2012  -  There have been many—probably way too many—movies made about terrible events within and surrounding the house at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York, most purporting to be based to some degree or another on fact. It can be unequivocally stated that MY AMITYVILLE HORROR is the most true-to-life film to deal with the phenomenon, and pretty much as unequivocally stated that it’s the best of them too.

World-premiering at Montreal’s Fantasia festival (where it has its second screening this Friday, July 27), MY AMITYVILLE HORROR is a documentary re-examining the case from the point of view of Daniel Lutz, who was a preteen when he, his parents George and Kathleen and two siblings moved into that house, then fled a month later, claiming to have been beleaguered by supernatural forces. Looking older than his 45 years, Daniel is seen speaking directly to director Eric Walter’s camera, in a session with a psychologist and, for the most screen time, recounting his experiences with Laura Didio, the journalist who spearheaded an investigation into the truth behind George’s claims of the haunting. The fact that Didio is his primary confessee says something about how the Lutzes’ quickly came to be defined by their media coverage.
