Trailer For THE AMITYVILLE MURDERS, Which Tells the Story of the Family Murdered in the Infamous House
All of the films that have been made about the infamous Amityville house have focused on the creepy horrific ghost stories that surround it after the murders that took place there. This new film, The Amityville Murders, will focus on the story of the family that was murdered in the house prior 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 film stars 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).
The Amityville Murders set to hit theaters on February 8th in the US.
