Are you sure you don't mean John Underhill (no reverend)?

You are confusing the character in the movie, Jerimiah Ketcham with John Ketcham. Jerimiah is a fictional relative of John Ketcham. The property in the nieghborhood of the house was owned by John Ketcham.

The Amityville 2005 writer, who is of a certain historically unpopular group, said he created that character to "Stick it" the he white man. I guess he also defamed Christians.

The event in the movie never happened.

The person who led the killing of the Indians in the area in bahalf of the Dutch was John Underhill.

Horror movies are aimed at a certain demographic: teenagers to early 20's group.

So according to the wisdom of the writers and producers of many schlock movies such as The Amityville Horror remake et al, as far as they're concerned nobody from the aforementioned demographic will actually chase up or research the so-called facts in which the "remake" are based on. Why not? Because they want to be entertained.

As far as they (the writers and producers) are concerned, the demographic I have mentioned will believe that if it says "based on a true story" then it might as well be 100% accurate, having little respect or concern for the audience who pay good money to watch this crap!

For shame!!
