There are many movies made on infamous Amityville house which have focused on the creepy horrific ghost stories that surround it after the murders that took place in the house. This new upcoming movie, The Amityville Murders, will be based on the story of the family that was killed in the house earlier to the hauntings.
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. This is their story.
The prequel to the haunting of the Amityville home comes from writer and director Daniel Farrand, who has directed several horror-inspired documentaries, such as Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th, Scream: The Inside Story, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, The Crystal Lake Massacres Revisited, The Fear Is Real: Reinvestigating the Haunting (in Connecticut), and a few other films.
The movie stars include John Robinson (Lords of Dogtown, Transformers), Chelsea Ricketts (The Hole), Diane Franklin (Better Off Dead, Amityville 2, Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure), and Paul Ben-Victor (Tombstone, Monster).
