yeah, so the Amityville haunting is an admitted hoax... This photo is "real" in the sense that it is a real, unmanipulated photo. However, the person in the photo is no ghost. It is obviously one of the investigators. It looks more like a woman than a kid, and a woman wearing glasses. The glasses are reflecting light from the flash or some other source of illumination (because as we all know, film records light be it infrared or visible). My guess is that a female investigator popped her head in setting off the motion sensor (if the camera was actually attached to a motion sensor) or just getting in the way of a photo being taken. Because of the fame of the photo, no one wants to fess up that it is them or someone they know in the photo, because that would make their group look sloppy and silly. So, they just roll with it. Bottom line: no ghost in photo.

Quite an impressive image if it is genuine!

For a spirit to create an semi-physical form must have allot of energy!

If the picture is real or not, it is almost impossible to decide since we only have small low res pic to work with.
But, in response to all people who years ago said the pictures wasn’t taken in the house, for granted, looking at the blueprints we can see perfectly it is the house in question.
I will not state anything regarding a photoshop analysis since for the reasons stated above, BUT, just looking at the picture as “technically correct/incorrect”, you have to note the shadows! Among the most important aspects in photography are the shadows to give the feeling of dimension. Note that there is a source of light since the railing cast a shadow below the lion painting, meaning the light source is above and aligned to the handrail top-left of the camera yet the head is not casting any shadow in the door frame.
Second, an infrared capture would turn the color different than what we could see in real life. So, perhaps a filter was used. Depending on the filter used, the capture would tell the story. So thinking that it was close to pitch black, with some kind of minor lighting from the third floor (as the shadows reveal); the eyes of the kid would be in total darkness, the proper rendering would be white which is consistent to the picture; BUT, the mistake there would be the handrail, being dark wood, it would be really dark and it should appear white too! Same would happen with the background on the two open doors.
Now, let’s think there is no infrared capture but a conventional high ISO black and white picture. In this case and with the technology in that time, even an expert would get a film about ISO 800. In this case, the picture would require a long shutter speed, depending of how dark it is, it could go from a couple of seconds up to minutes, meaning, the kid should have been static for all that time… but it looks too sharp in the picture to be a long exposure.

Photographers should know that recreating this is very easy. Looking at the un-cropped picture, the entire image appears to be in focus, telling us it was taken with a small aperture (say between f5.6 to f16) yielding that more light was required (hence the shadow) so a flash carefully located to conceal as much as possible the shadows is places along the railing… but then again, where’s the shadow of the figure?
Double exposure could be my answer.
The eyes? Easily done in post processing in darkroom work burning the area.
Possible? For the right amount of money, yes.

Is it real? I don’t know, but I’m inclined to say no.
After all this years, why the photographer or the owners of the picture haven’t made it public in high resolution for scrutiny? Perhaps because it is better to sell millions of small ones that can’t be analyzed instead of a real one which could be proven fake and therefore stop the profit.

What do you think?

I thought this was originally a video camera that was recording while the investigators were in another room?

Well, i dont know if the stories are true or false. That the murders where commited is the iny FACT there is.

As of 2010, the house is still standing and you can find it on GOOGLE EARTH:

There is a little something though that recently has bothered me. On a youtube video, theres an EVP thats says "I HAVE THE BODY OF A PIG, OINK OINK OINK", and didnt the littke girl say her imaginary friend was a pig???
When i find the link i'll post it up asap.

It's been discussed on ATS before quite a few times. And from what I can remember, the picture is as "legit" as it can get.

In my opinion, the picture sends shivers down my back each time I see it. I have several books back in the states about the paranormal and there's a picture of this house in it. I had to put some duct tape over the picture. Crazy as it sounds, the house just sends shivers down my back.

Considering that there was no actual demons/spirits/entities in the house before the murders, and they already proved that the guy was a total nut case who killed his family, I doubt this is a real photo.
However, it could be a spirit of one of the kids there whom he killed, that too is doubtful though. I wouldn't consider this picture to be real at all.
Why would they take a picture at that angle? What were they trying to photograph rather than a boy? These questions I have to ask, because really I highly doubt it is real... If I can be proven otherwise I would love that, because I wish this was real, but I really doubt it.

Well after reading all the posts about this picture, I'd like everyone to see the actual video, where it seems the "boy ghost" materializes. The photo wasn't discovered for three years, and I think that makes it all the more believable.

Just found this page and not sure if you all are aware of a documentary that will be out soon regarding the Amityville Murders that spawned the Amityville Horror movie franchise. Check out the website for the trailer, never before seen photos, legal documents, etc. on....

Be curious what you all think!

Thanks!
