The real Amityville Horror isn’t just what has happened in the past, but how it has continued to manifest itself in the present. I feel the real story here is the one that has never been told. It’s that gray area. It’s a story about the dynamics within the Lutz family at the time. No one can confirm or deny their veracity.

On November 13, 1974, the house at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York became a place that locals feared when 23-year-old Ronald DeFeo murdered his entire family under very mysterious circumstances.

Not so much because of the DeFeo murders, but because it told the tale of what happened to the next family who lived there, one year after the massacre. The Lutz family.
