Book written by Jay Anson/Film directed by Stuart Rosenberg The Amityville Horror was a best seller book that advertised itself as a True Story which would take the world by the storm to become a media franchise that still lives today. The basic history is that in 1974, Ronald DeFeo killed his family allegedly after hearing voices telling him to murder his family. One year later, George and Kathy Lutz and their three children move into the property where they experienced a haunting which would cause them to leave their house and personal belongs 28 days after moving in. We discuss the DeFeo Murders, the Lutz Family and all things Amityville. We look at the book and film and our feelings of the haunting and the mass media storm that would define true life horror to the pinnacle of what it is today. Come join us to discuss the phenomenon which is the Amityville Horror with your co-hosts Keith Chawgo, Jon Wilson and Vickie Rae and special guest Matthew V Brockmeyer, author of Kind Nepenthe.
