Recently I watched the horror classic, Amityville. It was purported to be one of the scariest movies ever made. Well, it was a rather well done flick, I'll give you that. But then part of the argument would have us believe that this was based on a true story. Hang on a minute, that's stretching it a bit, especially since I have actually seen the flick.
I don't want to dwell on all the details about Amityville and why I scoff when folks bring up the 'real life haunting' angle. The wiki page covers it rather well and google search brings up the numerous controversies surrounding the flick/story. For starters, folks who moved into the house later on didn't experience any X-Files style activity. Some of the events mentioned have been contested by many. At the very least, some folks involved have changed their version of the story a few times.
