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


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.


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 adaptation[edit]

A film adaptation 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.
