The tagline is legendary…well to me at least. It’s larger than the film’s title on the poster and echoes the sentiment of many people in the late seventies when they read about what happened to George and Kathy Lutz in Amityville. “Get Out” they did, and kicked off a firestorm.
This week marks the 36th anniversary of the release of The Amityville Horror. It is still my favorite horror film and I rewatch it at least once a year. It was the highest grossing independent release in history (at that time) but no one could have predicted the horror empire it would spawn. A dozen books and movies later the story is showing no signs of going away.
