    The bar scene in the 1979 Amityville Horror was filmed at a bar on East Water Street in Toms River,NJ. The bar is long since gone and the area has been converted into a park

    The Witches Brew bar was actually a bar called “Reynolds”, if I remember correctly. The scene was shot at the rear of the building. It is currently the “Music Academy”, a place for music lessons.
    In the background of this shot you can see the roof of a hotel. It is currently called “The Red Carpet Inn”.
    That area is on the corner of Water street and Rt. 9, not far from the house used in the movie.
    I remember driving past the house, with my parents, as a kid while they were shooting a scene.

    On IMDB it says some parts were filmed in Scotch Plains, NJ. Does anyone know what part of the film was shot there? My guess is that it was only a couple shots, but I’m still pretty curious.

    You can see the traffic passing by on Arnold Ave at the railroad crossing in the scene where the detective is watching the priest leave his house. So cool! I think that was the Parkway when she was driving back to the house ty onwards the end too. There was a mile marker, but I missed the number on it. Go Jersey shore!


    Her race back to the house has her going over the canal on rt 88 in Point Pleasant and the Tunney Mathis Bridge headed toward the barrier island on rt 37. Love this stuff!
