Rating:
R
The Amityville Horror is a classic 1979 horror movie centered around a family plagued by the demons which lie within the very walls of their house. The film is based on a novel by Jay Anson who claims the events he narrates actually took place. Skeptics reason the happenings are an exaggeration of the truth. George (James Brolin) and Kathleen Lutz (Margot Kidder) are interested in realizing their dreams of living in a big mansion on Long Island. As they search for the perfect home, they come across a beautiful estate where a family murder took place just one year earlier. George is undaunted by the realtor's forewarnings and claims that "houses don't have memories." But George and Kathleen Lutz, along with their three children, start to experience strange, paranormal activity within the house. They desperately call on a priest, Father Delaney (Rod Steiger), whose efforts to exorcise the house prove useless. The film was directed by Stuart Rosenberg (Cool Hand Luke, Voyage of the Damned, The Pope of Greenwich Village) and co-stars Michael Sacks, Helen Shaver, Amy Wright, Don Stroud, Murray Hamilton, John Larch, Natasha Ryan, K.C. Martel and Meeno Peluce.moreless
