A haunting bit of eye candy for the upcoming Amityville themed docudrama Shattered Hopes – The True Story of the Amityville Murders has landed on our desks harder than a giant red-eyed pig along with some equally unusual release news.
From the Press Release
The wait for Shattered Hopes, a documentary trilogy five years in the making, is almost over. Part I of the film, at just under 2 hours, is heading to DVD before the end of November 2011, says producer, writer and director Ryan Katzenbach.
Additionally, the general public will get an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the installment, entitled “From Horror To Homicide”, on the 37th anniversary of the mass murder of the DeFeo family, November 13. The matinee screening will be held at a small venue in Los Angeles with details to follow. The screening was slated for October 30, but had to move because of a schedule conflict.
The exact release date of Part I has not been announced, and KatcoMedia will likely go public with this on November 13 at the screening. DVD availability to the public will come within weeks of this venue.
Part I will be followed up with Parts II (Mob, Mayhem, Murder) and III (Forensics…Fraud) subsequently within mere months of Part I’s initial launch. Katco expects the film to be released, in its entirety, before early spring 2012.
The film series is narrated by the Emmy-winning Edward Asner.
