Continuity mistake: In the scene where the two priests are driving to the Lutz house and the car goes out of control, they alternate between shots of Rod Steiger and Don Stroud. The car's windows switch between closed and open in various shots. (00:42:00)

Continuity mistake: When the stairs are first shown, there's carpet up the middle of the stairs. At the end when they flee the house it's gone.

Trivia: When James Brolin was offered the role of George Lutz, he was informed that they didn't have a script to give him. James bought a copy of the novel and began to read it. At two o'clock in the morning, while reading a very intense part of the book, a pair of pants that he had hung up earlier fell to the ground causing him to jump in fright. After that, James agreed to do the film.

Trivia: The image of the man that appeared in the "Red Room" was James Brolin's brother.


Kathy Lutz: I just wish that... all those people hadn't died here. I mean... ugh! A guy kills his whole family. Doesn't that bother you?
George: Well, sure, but... houses don't have memories.

Father Delaney: Oh, Lord.

Father Delaney: God's peace in this house.

More quotes from The Amityville Horror


Question: Who did the demonic voice that told the priest blessing the house to get out?

Question: What is up with that pig thing in the window? Does it have anything do to do with anything?

Answer: That's Jodie. In the book and the supposed "true" story, the Lutz' daughter said Jodie could appear to her in any form he wanted, but usually looked like a pig.

Chosen answer: According to the book (and you can take that for what it is worth), one of the characters saw a pair of glowing red eyes in a window. Later they went outside and found pig tracks in the snow. That is what this scene is trying to convey.
