While many of the details surrounding the most infamous house in the U.S. and the murders that took place there may have been forgotten with time, at least there are 11 movies to loosely remind us what happened in the legendary Long Island suburb of Amityville. The folks at Scream Factory! have created a nice box set of the first three films: The Amityville Horror (1979), Amityville II: The Possession (1982) and Amityville 3D: The Demon (1983).
