OFFICIAL KEY ART
“One of history’s most famous haunted houses casts a long shadow in My Amityville Horror, Eric Walter’s tantalizing doc should please both believers and die-hard skeptics.“
“Eric Walter’s absorbing documentary My Amityville Horror stands apart from most Amityville-alia. He explores the hoax-or-horror debate, but his chief concern is the effect of a world-famous haunting on one of the people who experienced it.”
“Walter’s film succeeds is in rendering Lutz, on screen throughout, as an indelibly prickly and unsettling figure.”
“Daniel’s childhood demons are an impossible combination of supposed paranormal horror, true crime ghastliness, and childhood abuse. In the inferno that is his mind, they’ve become interlocked, and in the movie based on his life, they are essential and wholly riveting.”
“My Amityville Horror is extremely well-done. This is the definitive Amityville Horror story.”
