The Amityville Horror

On day 28, Kathy heads to the library to find out about the house that she once so badly craved for. She dicovered that a derranged Reverend Ketcham built the home and used it as a torture chamber to torture Native Indians in disgusting ways. Since the beginning George has been hearing the familiar evil voice and on day 28 goes completly nuts and tries to kill the family. After George chases the family around the house they end up outside Kathy hits George in the head with the end of the shotgun that Ronny DeFeo used to kill his family. (George tried to kill his family with it.) The family puts George in the speedboat and sails off away from the house. George wakes as is coming out of a coma and tells Kathy to not look back at the house and just sail on. The last thing we see is Jodi at the bottom of the stairs, turning back all the clocks to 3:15, and getting pulled through the floor by these huge hands. The Lutz family spent 28 days in the house. They never returned to Amityville not even to retrieve their possessions.


Continuity mistake: When Billy is holding logs still for George to chop, the second log he puts on the stump is stripped of any bark. But when George swings down to chop it, the log is suddenly covered in bark. (00:50:45)

Question: Probably it's for dramatic impact, but it seemed strange that Ryan Reynolds' character would rush out to the boathouse on seeing the red balloon. It would have made more sense to check her room first, but he leaves (and even dives into the icy lake) without telling anyone. If it was out and out panic, wouldn't he wake his wife? Apart from as a plot device, any ideas why?

Answer: He sees the balloon, and instantly assumes his step-daughter is inside the boat house, and hence is in danger of slipping and drowning (or perhaps already in such a situation). He rushes straight out to get there as quickly as possible. Checking her room, or telling his wife would take up time, not to mention he is probably running on adrenaline.
