040: The Amityville Horror (1979) – The Book vs. The Movie!
Inspired while reading The Amityville Horror on the beaches of Varadero in Cuba, Jason the Terrible delivers a solo-cast exploring the fascinating “true” story of the Lutz’s and their turbulent 28 day stay at 112 Ocean Avenue. How does the movie, starring James Brolin and Margot Kidder, differ from the original book? What subtle and significant changes in theme were introduced? We know the book was written to sell books, and the movie was made to sell tickets, so how can we expect the real story to survive? Does Jason think this is all a hoax, or is he a believer?
