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 Kathy 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.
Filmmaker Eric Walter will participate in a post-screening Q&A via skype after the 9pm screening on Saturday, April 6th.
“Whether seen as an investigation of the occult, a portrait of a deeply troubled man, or something in between, the canny and stylishly shot film has a broad enough appeal to justify a limited theatrical run before what should be a leggy video career.” – Hollywood Reporter
“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.” – Fangoria
“What is most impressive about this documentary is how inclusive it is….director Eric Walter does an incredible job of showing both sides of the story, without turning Daniel Lutz into a crazed lunatic.” – Bloody Disgusting
“MY AMITYVILLE HORROR is extremely well-done…this is the definitive Amityville Horror story for me.” – Film Threat
“The film becomes absolutely fascinating, with it taking a pragmatic, skeptical approach most documentarians working in this genre might have been scared off by.” – JoBlo’s Movie Emporium
“It is a film that adequately examines the line between reality and sensationalism and humanizes a story that, even in its mere forty year history, has become a cultural campfire tale.” – Film School Rejects
