On November 13, 1973, police received a frantic phone call that led them
to a nightmarish crime scene at the Defeo residence in Amityville, Long
Island - an entire family had been murdered in their beds while they slept.
In the days that followed, Ronald Defeo eventually confessed to methodically
killing his parents and four siblings with a rifle, saying "voices"
in the house drove him to the massacre. One year later, George and Kathy
Lutz and their children moved into the house thinking it would be their
dream home. But soon the voices began again. Sleepless nights. Numbing
cold. Visions of a murdered little girl. Then George began to do what
the voices told him... 28 days after moving in, the Lutzes abandoned the
residence - lucky to escape with their lives. 30 years after the shocking
real-life events that inspired one of the most popular horror stories
of all time, revisit the house that started it all: The Amityville Horror.
