  • George and Kathy Lutz along with their three children are moving into an elegant Long Island house. What they don't know is that six gruesome murders were committed there the year before - Ronald DeFeo Jr., the oldest son in the family, murdered his parents, his two brothers and two sisters by shooting them with a .35 caliber in November 1974. No sooner are the Lutzs moved into the house than they begin seeing horrible things - the ghost of Jodie DeFeo, horribly disfigured bodies - and hearing ghostly voices throughout the house. George seems to notice it the most, and it isn't long before he becomes a danger to those around him. When the local priest called in to bless the house, comes charging out in horror after being swarmed by flies, he issues a dire warning to Kathy - "Leave that house". But will they be able to escape before the house and its vengeful spirits take control of George - and make him into a deadly menace?

  • On November 14, 1974, police received a frantic phone call that led them to the DeFeo residence, where they made a grisly discovery - six bodies, the entire DeFeo family, all slaughtered with a .35 caliber as they slept calmly in their beds. Ronald DeFeo confessed to methodically murdering his parents and four siblings, and claimed it was the "voices" that told him to do it. One year later, on December 18, 1975, George and Kathy Lutz along with their three children moved into the house, thinking it was going to be their dream house. Especially if their dreams were nightmares. The Lutz family only lasted 28 days in their house after they were terrorized by demonic forces that drove them away. Based on the true story of George and Kathy Lutz, The Amityville Horror remains one of the most horrifying haunted house stories ever told - because it actually happened.
