The eldest son in the 'Amityville horror family' has revealed how his experiences in the haunted house in the 1970s ruined his life.

Now a 47-year-old Queens UPS driver, Danny Lutz, was just a 10-year-old boy when his family moved into the Long Island property which had previously been home to a brutal murder.

He and his parents reported 'paranormal activities' at the two bedroom property and fled - their experience inspiring a book, a 1979 movie and plenty of column inches disputing their claims.

Yep.  Danny needs a payday.

I'm guessing he is now short of cash?  If something troubled you so and you just wanted to forget about it, why do a documentary on it and go back to the house (even just to stand outside)??

Nah, I don't think so. I think they learned after they bought the house that a brutal series of murders took place there and it spooked 'em. If paranormal stuff was going on, why didn't it happen to any of the subsequent residents of the house?

The original crime was evil and terrifying enough. The mass murder of your ostensible loved ones doesn't need any embellishments to make it worse. Who needs demons when you have depraved, disturbed people like this? A no-holds-barred documentary on the crime would be much scarier than a vault full of dishonest Hollywood straight-to-DVD schlock.

There is one reality with billions of versions.

Check out their website for the movie: http://www.amityvillemovie.com/
If you can, read the Wall Street Journal story on the documentary.

Here is some of it in part:

Quote

Now a new documentary, "My Amityville Horror," makes it personal, introducing a man who is still living through that nightmare. The film, which will have its New York premiere Saturday at IFC Center as part of the third annual DOC NYC festival, features the first-person testimony of Daniel Lutz, the eldest of the Lutz siblings, who was 9 when the events occurred. A recluse who had a troubled, combative relationship with his stepfather and claims to have been homeless for a period after leaving his family in his early teens, Mr. Lutz has kept his secrets to himself until now.
"He's been carrying around this weight for nearly 40 years," said Eric Walter, the young filmmaker who devoted three years to making the documentary, amid a decade of obsessive amateur research into the case. "It's not easy to talk about."

Nor is it easy to hear. Whatever happened, Mr. Lutz, now 46, appears to have suffered from it for much longer than the month he spent in the house. He recounts stories of abuse and family dysfunction, combined with claims of continued paranormal disturbances that he has struggled to move beyond. The film revisits the original "haunting" and its many complicated tangents—including its ostensible source, the murder of six family members by one of the home's previous residents, Ronald DeFeo Jr.—through TV footage and newspaper clippings, but its focus remains on Mr. Lutz, both as an adult and as a child.

If I remember correctly, there was abuse and family dysfunction going on in the Defeo home as well. If there was a lot of abuse and family problems going on when the Lutz's moved in, and George was messing around in the occult as Daniel Lutz claims, that may have acted as a type of catalyst. Maybe the house itself isn't haunted, but the family was. I believe I read somewhere that the activity followed them after they moved. Anyway, I would really like to see this. It looks interesting.

Look up City Confidential on YouTube. There's an episode about the DeFeo family.

Think it's called something like Horror in Amityville or something like that. I think if you look up City Confidential and just Amityville you'll find it.
