On the night of November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr. took a high-powered rifle and murdered his entire family as they slept. At his trial, DeFeo claimed that "voices" in the house commanded him to kill. Thirteen months later, the Lutz family bought the house and stayed only 28 days before fleeing in terror. Their nightmarish ordeal shocked the world in The Amityville Horror. The Lutzes may have escaped from Amityville with their lives ... but the DeFeo's weren't so lucky. This is their story.
Previously titled The Amityville Murders: A Haunting on Long Island.
Actress Diane Franklin plays "Louise DeFeo" in the film and this wouldn't be her first Amityville movie. She was also in 1982's Amityville II: The Possession as "Patricia Montelli."
This marks Daniel Farrands' feature film directorial debut after serving as producer for films like The Haunting in Connecticut and most recently the long delayed Amityville: The Awakening.
It's said that this movie will "go beyond the story of the Lutz family and the house depicted in The Amityville Horror films."
