Great documentary
7 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought it was a great documentary to watch, it gave a lot of information about the Defeo case, and The Lutz haunting that may be of some very good help to those trying to prove whether if it's a hoax or not. They didn't really give a lot of details on the haunts, but they gave good points to why it would have to be a true story. Something indeed had to happen in that house, but some of it may have been made up for money. Also for fans of the movie, you'll learn things about the true story that you may not know. Also You get to see some pics of the famous house. It's really cool. It's not the best documenatary out there, but it has some good details and reincarnation scenes of how some see the murders and haunting occurred. It was neat. Bye for now
