There's no doubt that this makes for interesting viewing, and having followed the Amityville story for most of my life, first as a infant and total believer, and now a very skeptical adult, this story never stops growing arms and legs it seems. Mr Lutz is the focus of this very well made documentary in which we see him recount the story of his childhood, the haunting and ensuing life-long nightmare as "the Amityville kid".
One can't help but feel uncomfortable around this guy who aggressively maintains that the story is true. Yet none of what he says feels true. Most of his odd rantings feels like some wild tales told by the crazy guy in a bar who wagers his Harley that what he says is gospel, backed up by his buddy at standing at the jukebox. Some of his accounts are excruciatingly fantastic, and you'll find yourself mildly embarrassed. The visit to Lorraine Warrens home where she produces a crucifix and offers Daniel the chance to kiss it is actually vomit inducing. But great entertainment all the same. And when asked to take a polygraph test...oh dear. I just would not want to hang out with this guy.
I always find it slightly saddening to watch a group of so-called experts sat round in a table relating their paranormal experiences, reveling in the potential that this story has grounds in truth, choosing to ignore that well, no-one else who lived in the house has had problems, that the Lutz family were in need of a scoop and very disfunctional, that there is not one shred of evidence, that the 70's seemed to be for ghosts like the 50s were for UFO's, that many of the accounts were inconsistent and so on and so on.
Time has a way of making the fantastic seem rather dull and silly. And looking back at the saga of the house, its movies, books and sensation, the cold light of 2013 renders a very different result. Enjoy.

THERE ARE SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW.

This documentary has a fascinating idea. Take a famous 'true' story that most people are at lest vaguely aware of and get a new perspective on it from a supposed eye witness. It could be, and for the most part is, an absorbing and intriguing film. The final product is, however, overall an unsatisfying experience. This is not due to the makers of the film, rather it is its focus.

Danny Lutz does not come out of this well. He seems to be an angry man haunted by the ghosts of his childhood, but not any demonic pigs. Rather the real monster of 112 Ocean Avenue was his step-father, George. In this sense, the film is a success as it takes a story many of us know and gives us new information that changes how we can view it, but Danny himself makes this film hard to watch. As stated he is angry and over all a rather unlikable presence. For a man so insistent that what he says is true, he does himself no favours. His stories of George's psychic powers, versions of events that seem inconsistent with other accounts, and his ultimate refusal to take a polygraph don't help his case.

It is to the documentarians' credit that they seem sceptical of his tale and don't fall into the parapsychological babble that some of the interviewees do and also interview subjects who can help the viewer form an opinion of Danny's memories removed from his personality. In this sense, the film is a success and I am interested to see what they go on to do next. My three stars are for this film as it stands, however, and on that basis the figure of Danny lowers it as his demeanour and refusal to accept scepticism wear very thin.

I found this film really interesting and compelling. It is more about Danny Lutz's experience of the house and his family than the overall story itself. The film delves into his view point and asks questions about the true nature of George Lutz. I really felt for Danny and everything he'd been through.

This receives 5 stars as a comic piece of work!
You won't learn anything new from this at all, in fact it's a documentary about a spoilt, drink addled guitar playing idiot who doesn't want to be known as 'the amityville kid' and no one would know, but he clearly has nothing else to talk about. A self centred, deluded, rude, woe is me prat! The best moment for me was when he went to visit Lorraine warren who appears barking mad, and the two continue to ignore the facts and milk this story for ALL its worth! Only buy if you want a giggle, not to be taken seriously

This documentary is actually good, not because it gives a greater understanding of the Amityville story, but because it shows how the story has affected one individual in particular.

After watching the documentary, is 12 Ocean Avenue really haunted? Highly unlikely, but in Danny's mind it may have occurred, he was only 10 at the time.

I feel sorry for Danny as throughout the documentary he comes across as being an angry individual, and he is the only one that knows the true reason for this anger.

I've always been fascinated by The Amityville story so the chance to hear what a family member of The Lutz family had to say was really intriguing.
I have to say it didn't dissapoint, he was clearly traumatised by the time he lived in that house as a boy.
Definitely a good rent to now look at buying.
