It would be nice to see an Amityville-themed movie with a decent story line and some decent acting. I give every proposed movie project the benefit of the doubt until it finally gets released and the final judgement is made. I guess I am getting more tolerant in my old age.

Although what sounds particularly interesting from the above article is the film based on the '1974 events at a rural house in Amityville, N.Y.' and how Jay Anson's book The Amityville Horror 'detailed a family moving into the house (and) leaving a week later'.

Although I think unless Amityville was on Mercury a week could actually be a month or time is measured in dog's years, or it is an example of the Mandeal Effect where realities are starting to slowly diverge, I think the most plausible explanation would be lazy 'cut and paste' journalism we have all disturbingly become used to.

Agree. You'd think that they would do a little fact-checking first. Unless I'm wrong, Amityville hasn't been rural in a few centuries.

Personally, I think it would be interesting to see the narrrative told from multiple points of view (such as Dawn Defeo's and the other children's). In the History Channel doc from 2000, Kathy Lutz described her family's experience as a "three-ring circus" with everyone going through his or her own version of the ordeal. Maybe that would make for a more terrifying (or at least more involving) story.

But yes, some good storytelling, some decent acting...please.
