My Amityville Horror trailer, telling the true story?
Daniel Lutz is the oldest son of George and Kathleen Lutz. Why do those names sound familiar? Well perhaps as they are the main characters in the series of films started with the famous The Amityville Horror, and they are the names of the people from the real life story that inspired the books and the films.
Now Daniel Lutz is going to tell his story and experience of what happened to his family, of the events that they experienced, and in his eyes what really happened as well as what has happened to him since living in a world fascinated by what happened to his family.
I was surprised to discover that these two teaser trailers actually did relate to this story and I'd really forgotten all about it, mainly due to the less than exciting attempts to continue the series of films since the original and the effect that has on the power of the alleged truth of the events.
Now these two teasers, the second in particular, look as though they are promising a real insight into what happened and what affect this worldwide attention has had.
Here's the blurb for My Amityville Horror:
For the first time in 35 years, Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975. George and Kathleen Lutz's story went on to inspire a best-selling novel and the subsequent films have continued to fascinate audiences today. This documentary reveals the horror behind growing up as part of a world famous haunting and while Daniel's facts may be other's fiction, the psychological scars he carries are indisputable. Documentary filmmaker, Eric Walter, has combined years of independent research into the Amityville case along with the perspectives of past investigative reporters and eyewitnesses, giving way to the most personal testimony of the subject to date.
I really do hope that Eric Walter has indeed "combined years of independent research" into the story and really does present a strong and unbiased look into the events rather than a horror film inspired analysis.
There are two teaser trailers through TrailerAddict to accompany the write-up, the first is the weakest and you can see it right here:
The second is by far the strongest, most likely due to that single face shot that hangs just long enough:
