Amityville: The Horror Returns

Well, I’m not sure what to think after having read all 5 of the Amityville books.  They’ve been debunked over the years, and I still can’t believe that they (especially the last four) ever got labeled as non-fiction.  The fourth one even says it is a work of fiction inside, but the spine says non-fiction.  This fifth book, especially, is as unbelievable as they come.  Indian shamen, a contrived love story, a shape-shifting flirtatious babysitter, a disappearing house…they’re all here and straight out of bad Stephen King movie.  The references to Madonna and Ghostbusters would place this story in the mid 80’s, when little Amy would have been about 11-12 years old, but apparently Amy is still about 5 years old.  Can’t quite figure out how that happened.  Guess the gun-toting demon had something to do with it.  I think one could make a good drinking game from this book by knocking back a shot every time a character says ‘The children!!!’.

If you are looking for a somewhat entertaining fictional ghost story, this book isn’t that bad.  But, please don’t try to convince me that any of this is true.
