Editorial Reviews

For the first time in 35 years, child eyewitness Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975. His parents story of their 28 days in the allegedly possessed house on Ocean Avenue went on to inspire a best-selling novel and subsequent film series that have both captivated and frustrated the public since their release. MY AMITYVILLE HORROR is a gripping documentary that details the struggle behind growing up as part of a world famous haunting and shows that while Daniel's facts may be other's fiction, the psychological scars he carries are all too real.

4.0 out of 5 stars More interesting than the actual Amityville Horror April 6, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting if occasionally repetitive revisit of the original Amityville Horror story, focusing on one of the children (Daniel Lutz) who was forced through what was unquestionably a difficult childhood experience. Daniel Lutz is now an adult with a lot of psychological issues and as he chain smokes and F-bombs his way through the interviews, the subject of his anger is clearly less about the paranormal questions around the house and more related to the introduction of a fairly deranged ex-Marine step father.

The documentary lets the audience draw their own conclusions but from my perspective I see a family that mentally abuses and confuses the children while seeking fame and fortune through an extremely elaborate lie. Ignoring the admitted hoax, lack of evidence and complete disappearance of these supposed paranormal activities once the family left the house, the more I listen to Daniel as an adult, the more I feel the experiences were a side-effect of living under an Occult-obsessed, detached and frankly scary step father. This is a same step father who convinced Daniel he could use telekinesis to make objects fly, which Daniel recalls actually happening. As one of the psychologists alludes in the interviews, the memories are a blend of fact and fantasy to make sense of everything that happened - which also helps explain why the family wouldn't allow the children to be interviewed at the time, since they would likely not support the fabricated story (Balloon Boy, anyone?).

It's also interesting how Daniel's memory of the facts - and he clearly truly believes these things happened to him - have been influenced by fictitious details introduced by subsequent films that weren't part of the original descriptions of the haunting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting March 17, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is nothing like I thought that it would be, but at the same time it is exactly what I thought that it would be.
I understand a lot of the frustrations that Danny has in regards on how to explain things. It is very difficult to explain things to someone who doesnt understand. From paranormal experiences to even natural phenomenon. Men will not understand fully what it is like to give child-birth, and woman will never understand the feeling of getting kicked in the nuts. Same goes for paranormal experiences.
Now, do I believe that Danny went though these things? Absolutely. Do I believe the George (the father) was the cause of these things occurring? That is highly possible. Is Danny angry? Ohhhh yes, but I also believe that he has a right to be angry. It isnt fair to force a child to deal with these kinds of psychological instances, and it isnt fair for him as an adult to be expected to casually "waltz" though these memories. They bring emotions that are not pleasant.
Put yourself in Danny's shoes. This crap all happens. Your life is turned upside down. You cant go to regular school because of everything that has happened.
Anyways. It is not particularly expensive. Watch this video for what it is. Accounts of what took place for 1 family, to 1 child at that time. Try if you will to put yourself into his shoes. It will be difficult, but you can at least try to give it a shot. I enjoyed it, so I gave it 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars It all makes sense now..... April 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
When I was a kid, I think I read the Amityville Horror, and saw the movie, like a dozen times even though it scared the bejezus out of me. So I watched this the other night...

Danny Lutz, one of the kids, is the main subject. He is a hot mess, it is kind of like a episode of Intervention and Paranormal Witness rolled into one.

There are a lot of varying opinions to what exactly went down at the Amityville House and after watching, I think this is evil manifesting from human energy.

I too grew up in a house possessed by an alcoholic, military/post war, control freak, abusive demon with anger issues, as did many people in the 1970's........

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sad, True Account June 6, 2013
By Kelli
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
It's good to finally get a first-hand account of the Amityville haunting from one of the children who lived through it. I believe Danny's account to be true to the best of his recollection. He comes across as sincere, in spite of (or maybe because of) his unapologetic bitterness towards his step-father, George Lutz. The fact that he has run from the publicity of this incident his entire life, rather than attempting to profit from it as his parents (or at least George) did, increases his credibility for me. He relates his story in an unadorned fashion, almost reluctantly, and the pain in his voice is not masked by the guarded, profanity-laced defensiveness in some of his responses to interviewers' questions. I could sense a sweet, vulnerable guy under the gruff exterior of Danny Lutz---a very damaged guy. I hope doing the documentary was cathartic for him. I hope he finally finds some peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mistaken for something else? March 31, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
There are alot of negative reviews floating around out there and I think it's because viewers were expecting some sort of thing like a documentary one sees on tv sometimes with setting up cameras or celbrity ghost stories. If you go into the film thinking those ways it makes sense not to appreciate it for what it was, which was a documentary about psychology, and how the human Brian remembers things, and what it is capable of doing. It was rather interesting. Made me think more of my past life experiences in which, some I can be remembering wrong,
