Amityville references in modern culture

Post by Amit Y Ville » Tue Jul 09, 2019 1:46 pm

Please post references to Amityville in modern culture and entertainment.

It's no coincidence that popular TV show Stranger Things takes inspiration from the 80's. The Duffer Brothers made sure to give us an idea of their true inspiration by casting one of their main characters as a doppelganger of Sonny.

I think comparing Charlie Heaton with Jack Magner is like saying George Lutz was Ronnie DeFeo's doppleganger. This was just like the whole High Hopes thing by Panic! At The Disco being about Ronnie. :roll: :roll: :roll:

If you're going to compare Stranger Things with the Amityville Horror at least go with something tangible.

BTW....that's Gaten Matarazzo's (aka Dustin Henderson) band, Work In Progress, playing at a club in Amityville.

I don't appreciate your attitude.

I mean, if you don't think they look similar, I believe in you... desperately needing new glasses.

Would you like a tissue? Maybe some help getting to your 'safe space'?

I will pass the tissues to you. Looks like an amateur troll needs them.

Now now, ladies just admit that you love one another but cannot find the right words to do so. :D

The "haunting" is referenced in the song Spirit Of '76 by Clutch, which was released last year.
