Watch the child who lived in the Amityville Horror house recall his scariest nights

The Lutz family may have made up the entire Amityville Horror haunting to sell books and make money, but their son certainly believes that evil still lurks in the home. Check out an exclusive clip from the documentary My Amityville Horror, which chronicles Daniel Lutz's childhood experiences.

Seriously, can you imagine being raised by paranormal hoaxers in a murder house that may or may not be haunted? Lutz grew up inside the spooky old house in Long Island, New York, and in the clip above, he reveals a few of his creepiest memories. Here's the official description:

For the first time in 35 years, Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975. George and Kathy Lutz's story went on to inspire a best-selling novel and the subsequent films have continued to fascinate audiences today. This documentary reveals the horror behind growing up as part of a world famous haunting and while Daniel's facts may be other's fiction, the psychological scars he carries are indisputable.


My Amityville Horror is currently select theaters and on Cable VOD and digital outlets (including SundanceNow).

I saw this last year, and it is a really great documentary. You really, really feel for the guy because you can see the impact that this event had in his life, but he is the textbook definition of the unreliable narrator. I firmly believe that he believes it, but I have serious doubts that there was ever a legitimate haunting (if there is such a thing).
