What Scares You? Horrorshow: The Amityville Horror(1979)-September 26, 2014 The Hollywood 3 Cinema



Greeting Ghouls,
This month I've decided to dust off one of the most famous haunted house tales ever told, The Amityville Horror!

Come Creep back to 1979 when morbid movie goers were invited into a gateway to hell with the supposed "true" story of Gorge & Cathy Lutz & their Eerie Experience with at Horrid Horrid house in an Atrocious little town known as Amityville. 

You see, What George and Cathy didn't know before moving into their dreary dream home, is that a mere 13 months before an young man by the name of Robert DeFeo Jr. murdered his entire family in cold blood. Haunted by demons & plagued by voices, young Robert (better Known as "Butch") picked up his fathers rifle and systematically executed his mother, father, and 4 younger siblings in their sleep.

After only a few days in the haunted house George starts to suffer from dreadful dreams that seems to mirror the morbid mind of demented Defeo boy. Was the same evil forces at work on young Butch now possessing George, was something even more sinister afoot. Watch in horror as one of the most controversial "true events" terror tale unfolds this month at Horrorshow..... FOR GOD'S SAKE GET OUT!
