True Terror with Robert Englund

f you ever dreamed of having Robert Englund tell you a horror story, your dream has finally come true! He’s as obsessed with horror stories as the rest of us. Robert has scoured news stories dating back to the 1880s.

Amityville, Long Island. You know the name. But before The Amityville Horror, there was something much more horrific…and 100% real.

The movie opens with a black screen, spooky noises, and a couple of floating heads, giving you a little taste of what’s to come. Based on the book by Shirley Jackson, It is a low-budget, no special effects, piece of classic horror brilliance…
