Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mr. Lutz prattles on endlessly about the paranormal activity he says he witnessed, the unpleasant family dynamics he grew up with and more.
Fresh: Where Walter's film succeeds is in rendering Lutz, onscreen throughout, as an indelibly prickly and unsettling figure.
Fresh: The blurring of fact and fiction has been a part of the Amityville saga since it became public, but for Lutz there's no gray area in his memories, whose power is undiminished.
Fresh: Unusual doc should please both believers and die-hard skeptics.
Amityville (A tough film)
This is a really tough film to watch. This isn't a scary movie and isn't intended to be. No ghosts will jump out, no furniture will be flung, I think there is one unsettling photgraph and that is it. The content of the story , however, will set your teeth on edge. This is a very deep and personal look of the life of one of the children to live inside of The Amityville Horror house, this American iconic place of legend. And it breaks your heart. From the first few minutes, Danny, begins to recall the story of what happened inside of that house and what his family was like. Whether or not the story is true, doesn't really matter here. What does matter is that Danny believes that the story is true. What I think we see here is an man who had to deal with some of the worst kinds of child abuse there is and that is pychological abuse. It breaks my heart that no one loved this kid, and possibly his siblings, the way a parent should love their kids. Danny's tale, while dramatic given the legend of that house, however isn't that unfamiliar. He tells his story in a crass, unpolished, passionate, and heartfelt way that keeps the viewers attention through the entire thing. I just hope that after this video, Danny, can find the peace he was looking for.
Amazing! Must see!
This film is an incredible look at the now grown man who lived through one of America's most famous hauntings. A must see!
If you can't get enough amityville...this is for you!
I read this book when I was a kid and have always been fascinated by the story so to hear from one of the people who actually lived through it was a real treat. Definitely worth the price of admission!
