    "The Amityville Horror" , a real event or a huge hoax??

    Since it is the Halloween season, the time for everything that "goes bump in the night" I thought I would ask if anyone believes in the "Amityville Horror"?  The supposedly possessed home in Long Island that spurned books and movies but has had no other issues with all of the future owners???

    I thought I heard once that the Owners fessed-up and admitted it was a hoax? Saw the movie on TV just recently and have to say - it was not very good.

    It's a great story but over the years more and more evidence has suggested that it was an elaborate hoax concocted by the Lutzes, who were supposedly in financial trouble.

    George and Kathy Lutz are both dead now, though, and as I understand it their children refuse to discuss the matter at all so we may never truly know for sure!

    Supposedly one of the children, now adults, I think it is Daniel is still making claims that it is true.  I saw recently where he was working on a website to support it.  I guess if you can still "milk the cow" then go for it.

    Well besides all of that - what happened in that house before the silly movie got made was what was truly frightening and has yet to ever be satisfactorily explained.

    Mr. DeFeo Jr. shot his entire family as they laid in bed...one by one, with a high powered rife.  No one was drugged - they just laid there waiting for him to come to their room, murder them.

      I wholeheartedly agree.  The Lutzes cashed in on a mindless tragedy.

      Ronnie Defeo....never tells the same story twice, even to this day....what an amazing psychopath, and a very sad story.
