Trivia: The Amityville Horror
  • Actor Allusion: In Amityville II, a poster for Rocky can be seen hanged on a wall. Burt Young, who plays Sonny's father, was a costar in the Rocky movies.
  • Executive Meddling: The decision to make Jodie a Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl instead of a demonic pig, in the wake of The Ring's success.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: The house is haunting Lois Lane in the first movie.
  • The house that the film's plot supposedly occurred in still stands in Amityville, Long Island. While it remains a popular walk-by spot, especially on Halloween, the iconic wedge windows have been replaced and the paint is different, to make it look less like the popular image of the house.
    • The house built for the movies in Toms River, New Jersey has been extensively remodeled (the wedge windows are gone and the gambrel roof has been replaced with a regular one) and repositioned on the property as to not make it visible from the street.
    • Christine Belford, who played Regina Cunningham in the film adaptation of Christine, lived in the house at 112 Ocean Avenue from 1960-1965. Her parents sold the home to the DeFeos.
