One of the reasons I keep revisiting the Amityville Horror is that it's a classic ghost story. Don't get me wrong, the movies are terrible. The story itself is what I'm talking about. To this day I can still remember that feeling of doom whenever the classic picture of it in black and white (it always looked brown to me) would show up. It was one of those few things that made me feel as scared as it did. Not just scary, a threatening terror that was dangerous to even think about. Even though I've never been to there, it feels familiar. Instead of the movies, I prefer to watch the various documentaries about the whole thing. I can re-watch the same ones over and over. I wasn't there, but it some ways, the whole thing feels more like a memory than a story I've seen.
