MY AMITYVILLE HORROR is a feature-length documentary directed by Eric Walter, where 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 Kathleen Lutz’s story went on to inspire a best-selling novel, and the subsequent films continue to fascinate audiences today. This documentary reveals the personal horror of growing up as part of a world famous haunting.  And while Daniel’s facts may be others’ fiction, the psychological scars he carries are indisputable.  Nate Hoeft was Co-Editor and Post-Production Coordinator on the film as well as editor for this teaser.

The film was released theatrically by IFC Films on March 15, 2013, and is now available on DVD and streaming via iTunes, Amazon and Netflix.  Visit for more information.
