First Trailer for My Amityville Horror | Daily Dead.

from My Amityville Horror (2012) – Plot Summary.

For the first time in 35 years, Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975. George and Kathleen Lutz’s story went on to inspire a best-selling novel and the subsequent films have continued to fascinate audiences today. This documentary reveals the horror behind growing up as part of a world famous haunting and while Daniel’s facts may be other’s fiction, the psychological scars he carries are indisputable. Documentary filmmaker, Eric Walter, has combined years of independent research into the Amityville case along with the perspectives of past investigative reporters and eyewitnesses, giving way to the most personal testimony of the subject to date.

From what I can make out, this movie is not necessarily about what actually happened at the house but how living there, with this family environment, affected him. Note interviews with memory expert Elizabeth Loftus. It looks intriguing and has some good reviews so far.

    Do the Novella boys know about this? From what I remember they had more than a few run-ins with the Warrens…

    (Gawd… I made that sound like the plot of a spaghetti western…)

    It is almost supernatural how this admitted fraud (by the author of the book about it) seems immortal.

    BTW – shouldn’t Ed Warren have come back as a ghost on some respected news show to prove that ghosts exist?

    It appears that there is another movie in the works JUST on the Warrens. http://doubtfulnews.com/2011/12/new-movie-pending-about-notorious-ghost-hunters-ed-and-lorraine-warren/

    Oh dear. From the look of the trailer, they are trying to focus on the paranormal rather than the people. Perhaps it is just the editing to draw in a crowd, but it feels more sensationalized that it needs to be.
