Living just minutes from the real infamous "haunted house" in Long Island, New York that inspired the events of Jay Anson's novel "The Amityville Horror," I have always been intrigued by the story of Ronald De Feo, the murders of his family, his subsequent claims of "demonic possession" that forced him to kill them, and the Lutz family's claims of a haunting in the same residence. While STILL waiting for a region 1 release of "Amityville II: The Possession" and "Amityville 3-D" on DVD, the original "Amityville Horror" has always been a guilty pleasure of mine....unfortunately, the bare bones MGM disc that houses the film on disc is a dissapointment to a fan like me. While the transfer isnt bad, the audio is in a congested 2.0 mono, and aside from a rather long trailer, there are no extras.... I was wondering, now with the announcement of an "Amityville Horror" remake (due out next year sometime) that will be produced by action guru Michael Bay (the pre-production photos look horrible, IMO...the house doesnt even look like the house did in the 1970s), does anyone think MGM will do a Special Edition re-vamp of some kind of the original film? Perhaps with some 5.1 remastered audio and MAYBE clips from the History Channel documentary about the murders and the haunting as an extra? As a fan, I would dump the version of "The Amityville Horror" that I have now and buy a Special Edition in a heartbeat.
