Well folks, there you have it. The entire “Amityville Horror” series review.
I have to say it’s been really interesting looking back over this franchise.
Some of you may have noticed that there are some films missing such as “The Amityville Asylum”, “The Amityville Playhouse” and more. I omitted these as I don’t see them as an official part of the franchise, I don’t even know why I reviewed “The Amityville Haunting to be honest.
It’s been over 40 years since “The Amityville Horror” was released and it’s still talked about with fascination and wonder, but also a lot of scepticism. The legend of the house has kept people intrigued all this time and continues to do so, that interest seems to keep growing with each new generation.
If you’re interested to hear more about the goings on in the house then I highly recommend the documentary “My Amityville Horror”, it focuses on Daniel Lutz’s side of the story regarding the events. I also urge you to read the book that started it all, It makes for some truly terrifying reading.
Unfortunately due to all the unwanted fame the books and films had brought upon the real house in Amityville, the owners at the time sadly replaced the “evil eyes” windows with normal rectangle-shaped windows to try and deter tourists and fans.
“The Amityville Horror” is so much more than a series of films and books, it’s a part of pop culture whether you like it or not. I know some don’t like it due to the real life DeFeo massacre, a horrible incident, but yet here we are, still talking about the true story and the legends of the house. Whether you believe it all is up to you.
