Dan Farrands is the perfect person to bring us a new Amityville film given his close relationship with George Lutz and his in-depth knowledge of the DeFeo murders. That’s just one reason we’re so stoked for his new film, The Amityville Murders: A Haunting on Long Island.
The other? We can tell you exclusively that it reunites Amityville II: The Possession stars Diane Franklin AND Burt Young! How very cool is that? Talk about a gift for fans!
In addition to Young and Franklin, the film stars Paul Ben-Victor, Lainie Kazan, Chelsea Ricketts, and John Robinson.
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 DeFeos weren’t so lucky. This is their story.
