The Amityville Murders – aka The Haunting on Long Island: The Amityville Murders – is a 2017 American horror film written, produced and directed by Daniel Farrands (co-writer and producer of Amityville: The Awakening; producer of The Id and The Haunting in Connecticut; director of Crystal Lake Memories). It stars John Robinson, Diane Franklin and Paul Ben-Victor.
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 DeFeo’s weren’t so lucky. This is their story.
The film is currently in post-production.
