Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The tagline for this film is "What happened over the next 28 days has never been explained".
- Principal filming on The Amityville Horror began on August 4th, 2004 and concluded on October 12th. Filmed on location in Buffalo Grove, Illinois.
- Horror film debut for director Andrew Douglas. Originally, Samuel Bayer was being considered for the role, but turned it down. Instead, he went on to direct the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
- Actress Melissa George, who plays the role of Kathy Lutz in The Amityville Horror, will go on to portray fire marshal Stella Oleson in the 2007 vampire film 30 Days of Night.
- Actor Ryan Reynolds chose not to become close with his "movie" children. He wasn't mean or rude to them, just very distant. So distant in fact that the children often confided to those on the set that "Ryan doesn't like us!" Ryan said that he didn't want to "fall in love" with the kids. Ryan did this so that when "George" started changing, he'd have no trouble easing into the verbal and physical abuse. 
- In the original script, the poster on Billy's bedroom wall during the babysitter scene was of a different band. However, when the crew realized how long of a tongue actress Rachel Nichols (who played the babysitter) had, they decided to change it to a poster of the rock band Kiss, because of band member Gene Simmons' very long tongue.
