When George and Kathy Lutz and their children move to Amityville, Long Island, they believe they have found the perfect family home. But the house has a shocking story and within its walls a demonic presence lies in wait that runs the Lutz’s lives into a living nightmare. Their only hope is to get out before it's too late.

One of the most acclaimed and terrifying horror films of the 1970s, director Stuart Rosenberg's (Cool Hand Luke) The Amityville Horror features powerhouse performances from James Brolin (Westworld), genre film icon Margot Kidder (Superman), Rod Steiger (In the Heat of the Night), and cult star Don Stroud (Django Unchained). With a chilling screenplay by Sandor Stern and an unnerving score by Lalo Schifrin (Mission: Impossible), 88 Films is proud to present The Amityville Horror on UHD, stunningly restored in 4K from its 35mm original camera negative.

Artwork is decent but I actually prefer the regular version. Interesting to see 88 Films branch out with some store exclusive variants though
