Seems to me like they made up their mind already
13 December 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

A rich family move into a house, and bad things start happening, possibly related to the building itself, or stuff about the people. This culminates in the eldest son killing the four siblings and both parents. After going over the DeFeo case, this changes its focus... about a year after those events, the Lutz' move in(and they apparently told their children about the murders), and they experience apparent supernatural phenomena and finally run away. This is one of the three documentaries and one of two episodes of a television show(albeit in spite of the two words making up the title being "history" and "mysteries", it doesn't supply all the facts(it would appear they went for those that support the claims of what occurred), and it's clear that those who put this together were determined to believe), on the 2-Disc Special Edition of The Amityville Horror of 1979. It consists of interviews, reenactments(some of them unintentionally funny), narration and still shots. The editing is fine. This doesn't spend much time on theories that don't involve demonic possession, and this really is made for those who either already are superstitious or are receptive to it. I recommend this solely to those that fall into that group. 6/10
