18 Truths Behind What Actually Happened At Amityville

 

Since 1977 a house on the lake in Amityville, New York has been the subject of multiple books, television programs and almost 15 movies, including Amityville: The Awakening, which hit theaters April 1, 2016.  For some reason, the real story of the Amityville Horror is rarely told in the films, which spend more celluloid on a fiction based around the Lutz family and their haunting that might have happened, but definitely not to the degree they’re saying it did. One of the most interesting facts about the Amityville case is that the hauntings have been debunked numerous times, and the lawyer who initially represented the family at the heart of the case has stated in multiple court documents that the entire haunting was a hoax. Still, the mythology of the Amityville Horror lives on. Read on to find out the truth of what actually happened at Amityville.

As you read through this examination of the fact and fiction of the Amityville case you’ll see that much of what takes place in the film, The Amityville Horror, and its subsequent sequels like Amityville: The Awakening is either a beefed up version of what actually happened to the families who lived in the house, or a complete fabrication of a few people who were trying to make a few bucks. What you believe of these Amityville facts is up to you, and they are presented here next to their film counterparts to help you decide the truth about Amityville.
