The Amityville Curse is a prequel to The Amityville Horror written by Hans Holzer. A film adaption titled The Amityville Curse was released direct-to-video in 1990.

Summary[edit]

The plot is entirely fictional and tells that the house at 112 Ocean Ave. was once a rectory and that one of the priests died there and the house became haunted.

Reception[edit]

The book was given mixed reviews. It confused readers with why the house was haunted. This was because Holzer's 1979 book Murder in Amityville tells a different story on why the house is haunted.

Film adaption[edit]

A film adaption loosely based on the book was released direct to video in 1990 titled The Amityville Curse. The film however deals with another haunted house in Amityville.
