The most haunted road in America, Mt. Misery Road in Long Island NY, comes alive in a new horror movie titled Amityville: Mt. Misery Road. The film is the chilling tale of a young married couple's journey on a byway near Amityville, N.Y. that has reportedly been cursed for hundreds of years.
"The frightful story unfolds as Charlie and Buzi, played by Chuck Morrongiello and Karolina Morrongiello who are married in their real life, travel to the mysterious road, which is haunted by legendary stories of creatures such as Mothman and Hellhound and ghosts from an old, abandoned asylum. Buzi and Charlie fight to keep their sanity through one throat-clenching episode after another. But the force of evil gradually takes over and Buzi - an attractive young Florida newlywed, decays into a wrecked victim of the gloomy woods that squeeze tight against the haunted road."
Chuck Morrongiello, who directed Amityville: Mt. Misery Road, grew up on Long Island and has heard stories about the haunted road since childhood. "I sometimes used to play in the woods around Mt. Misery," he said. "But it was always the most scary and spookiest place to be. I always thought it would make a great movie."
Chuck and Karolina created Amityville: Mt. Misery Road in a unique, organic way, spending $2,500 to fund the endeavor. Filmed on Long Island, the movie exudes a sense of unordinary realism. The film won an award for the best motion picture at the Horror Hotel Festival in Ohio in 2018.
Curt Wyka, Lloyd Goldstein and Joey Laspina also star.
Naturally, the couple is already hard at work on a follow-up film, which Chuck describes as being inspired by The Shining and Misery.
