For God’s Sake, Get Out!
The beautiful, three-storied colonial in Amityville, New York, seemed like the dream house that George Lutz (James Brolin) and his wife, Kathleen (Margot Kidder), had always wanted. The fact that the previous tenants had been brutally murdered there didn’t disturb the unsuperstitious couple. But as soon as the Lutzes and their three children moved in, a series of terrifying and inexplicable events began. When the local priest (Rod Steiger) tries to bless their home, he develops red welts all over his body. Cold winds and eerie sounds range throughout the house. Menacing eyes glow from the barn window. And the very walls of the house seep with a strange ooze. After 28 days, the Lutzes decide to escape from this nightmare, but will it let them leave? Based on the shocking true story, “The Amityville Horror” has become the ultimate haunted house story of modern times.
