July 15, 2015
Not so much an "untold story" of the Amityville case as a psychological study of a troubled man.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 4, 2013
Though no new answers are presented, the questions should intrigue anyone fascinated by things going bump in the night.

April 2, 2013
Where Walter's film succeeds is in rendering Lutz, onscreen throughout, as an indelibly prickly and unsettling figure.
April 2, 2013
Not only a unique psychological spin on the entire story, but more importantly a truly heartbreaking examination of a 40 year old man who has spent his life trying to protect a wounded 10 year old boy within him.
April 2, 2013
If you're a skeptic like myself, this won't convince you, but it will provide some interesting insight into the type of people that spread these stories.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 2, 2013
Unusual doc should please both believers and die-hard skeptics.
March 15, 2013
Spooky stuff, effectively directed by Eric Walter, even as it rehashes much of what is well known from the books and movies.
Full Review | Original Score: B
March 15, 2013
A disturbing mixture of the paranormal and the psychological.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
March 14, 2013
The blurring of fact and fiction has been a part of the Amityville saga since it became public, but for Lutz there's no gray area in his memories, whose power is undiminished.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 12, 2013
Whether it was all a haunting or a hoax is left unanswered, but the film leaves little doubt that Amityville's greatest source of evil was, fundamentally, parental in nature.
March 12, 2013
The film is a tender character portrait rooted in deep curiosity and sympathy for its subject.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 8, 2013
This was a chance for something definitive. What we get, instead, is something as incomplete yet intriguing as the original tale.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 22, 2013
My Amityville Horror is extremely well-done for what is essentially one man sitting and telling his story.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
January 22, 2013
It is a film that adequately examines the line between reality and sensationalism and humanizes a story that, even in its mere forty year history, has become a cultural campfire tale.
Full Review | Original Score: B
January 22, 2013
Eric Walter's fascinating documentary offers a new perspective on the much-told story.
October 24, 2012
My Amityville Horror maintains a path somewhere between faith & agnosticism, adding manipulatively spooky music to underscore Daniel's tales, yet presenting a polyphony of irreconcilable perspectives from others without deciding between them for us.
March 26, 2013
A rudderless exercise in examination, ultimately the doc has no point of view, no upshot, and no reason for being.

Mr. Lutz prattles on endlessly about the paranormal activity he says he witnessed, the unpleasant family dynamics he grew up with and more.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 14, 2013
