The Amityville Horror

MAX: She’s safe.
LORELAI: She’s with my mother. No one is safe with my mother.
MAX: She needed some space.
LORELAI: No, that house is not safe. It’s like The Amityville Horror without all the good times.

The Amityville Horror is a 1979 horror film directed by Stuart Rosenberg, and based on the sensational book of the same name by Jay Anson. The book purported to be a true story about a demon-possessed house in Amityville on Long Island, New York, but investigation proved that the book was a hoax cooked up to make money (at which it succeeded spectacularly).

The Amityville Horror was a massive box office success, and the #2 film of 1979; it is one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time. Despite getting mostly negative reviews, it has had a number of sequels and remakes, and is regarded as a horror classic.
