The actual address of the house when the Lutz family moved in was 112 Ocean Avenue. When George and Kathleen visit the house for the first time, the address is 412 Ocean Avenue. This is because not only is the movie not meant to be historically accurate in any way, but for legal reasons they were unable to use the house's original address. For the same reasons, the children's names have been changed from the original Lutz family names. See more »

"From Michael Bay, the producer of 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', comes the true story of Amityville. In November 1974, a family of six was brutally murdered. Now, a year later, an unsuspecting young couple, George (Ryan Reynolds) and Kathy Lutz (Melissa George), and their children move into the house that was the site of the horrific event and is now haunted by a murderous presence. What follows is 28 days of unimaginable terror. With demonic visions of the dead and relentless screams of terror, this is the haunted house story that isn't just a movie - it's real," according to the film's official description.
Writer Jay Anson along with "The Amityville Horror" house residents George and Kathleen Lutz essentially made up this story, which was a media sensation even before the first movie appeared in 1979.
"Based on the true story," all of this was supposed to be about a "real" haunted house, with ghosts possibly vengeful due to desecration of sacred Indian burial grounds. Apparently, some religions share the same devil. Gullible people gobbled up the ghoulishness revealed in the original book and movie. It may also be a tribute to the storytellers' imagination that "The Amityville Horror" continues to be taken seriously. This re-make bears mysteriously little resemblance to the original story, however; the flies are sorely underused. Admirers of the male physique will appreciate a generous sampling of Mr. Reynolds' killer body.
