The murder of the DeFeo family by Ronald DeFeo, Jr. is not the only real life reference in the film. The inmates of the Amityville Asylum are also loosely based on true cases. The back story for the character of Sadie Krenwinkel is based on the crimes of Manson Family members Susan Atkins and Patricia Krenwinkel. The murder depicted in the film by the character of Dennis Palmer is based on British criminal Robert Maudsley, who gruesomely murdered fellow inmates at Wakefield Prison. See more »
Even in an institution for the criminally insane, patients have floors, lights, and beds. It is not legal to put someone in what can only be described as a cell with a dirty floor and nothing else. See more »
The scariest thing about this is that I attempted to watch it
As I am currently on a trek trying to find some decent horror/thrillers I have been scouring the web high and low for movies that fit into that genre and after a quick read of the synopsis of this I thought I would give it a try. I actually lasted 47 minutes, after wanting to turn it off after 8 minutes then again at the 14, 23 and 31 minute marks I could not harm my television or my eyes anymore as to be brutally honest this is just plain bad. I have shown a lot of patience in my quest to find some decent horror movies but I could not bring myself to watch anymore as the acting was atrocious although I did learn more about cleaning products than what the actual movie was supposed to be about so I guess that is a plus. So my recommendation?? don't even consider watching this as the 1/10 I gave it is more than I wanted to give it.
