This is the shorter(with a running time of 17 minutes) of the two documentaries(well, in this regard, I can only use that term loosely) on the DVD of 2005's The Amityville Horror. It consists of interviews, stills and clips of the film(that it spoils, albeit it only refers to the aspects of it where it sticks to what some people insist on believing happened at that house in the early 70's. This mostly has individuals who belong in that category, and is an incredibly see-through sensationalist piece that seeks to remind audience members of the case(and yes, six people being murdered is tragic... that doesn't mean you need anything supernatural for it to happen) in an obvious attempt to drum up attention for the remake. You want the story? Watch the two episodes History's Mysteries did on it(if you can tolerate the goofy reenactments). This goes through the motions, if even that. And then there's who I refer to in my Summary... Lorraine Warren. "Interpreter for the dead" is her credited title. I can barely type that crap out. She even ends this by telling the camera that "the best protection the Devil has is a skeptical public". Is that so? Well, replace the word "Devil" with "powerhungry people who use religion to enforce their selfish ideas upon the rest of the world" and the word "sceptic" with "unquestioning"... yeah. I will take my chances with your big red bogeyman, lady. I recommend this to those who swallow this junk with ease. Everyone else, stay away. 4/10
