The "Amityville Curse" house found !

Post by Yofriends » Fri Aug 26, 2011 4:53 am

I finally managed to find the location of the house used in the direct-to-video movie "The Amityville Curse" (1989).

The movie was shot in Canada, and the house is located in the street of "Rue du Moulin", in the city of Saint-André-d'Argenteuil (Quebec, Canada).


Here are 2 screenshots of the house (click images to view fullsize) :

I know that this movie isn't very popular, but I think that now we have the location of all Amityville movie houses ! ;)

I remember watching that movie to about the halfway part, until I figured out who the killer was, then turned it off... Just wondering was this house supposed to be 112 Ocean or a different house that happened to be in Amityville?

Did anyone go through and see if they could see any film flubs where the street signs or business signs were in French?

The book "Amityville Curse" had a team of psychic investigators go to 112 Ocean but the movie had the investigators go to a completely different house that was supposed to be in Amityville.

Little trivia fact about Amityville Curse. It is the only movie in the Amityville series that does not feature the house with a gambrel roof and quarter-round windows.
Every other Amityville movie contains at least one shot of it.

You've been doing your homework, that's for sure! :D

Yes, and I wonder why the producers of this movie decided to shoot in a completely different house?...
They really thought that the audience would make no difference between this house and the the real one?

I feel that they've made absolutely no effort to make this house looks like the one in Amityville...

Especially since I spotted in the same city two houses that look like more the real Amityville house than the one used in the movie!:

So, is it a deliberate choice of the producers or a very poor work of the location manager?... :think:
