A valley man spent decades trying to escape the ghosts of his past. He lived in one of America’s most famous haunted houses — in Amityville, New York.
Now, the man who lived in the real home from “The Amityville Horror” is separating fact from fiction.
Lutz said the book — billed as a true story — exaggerated the facts. By the time Hollywood had the story, it became pure fabrication.
Oh, this sounds promising considering it has been exposed that the original book business was cooked up. However…
Lutz said his stepfather, George Lutz, was dabbling in the occult — reciting the names of demons after the family moved into the home.
And THAT was what triggered the events that terrified him as a child. Oh.
I calculate that he was 7 or 8 at the time. All these years and now he is capitalizing? I’m not really interested in another version of the story (from childhood memories possibly influenced by tremendous media coverage) when there is no evidence that these events were genuine. In addition, his estranged brother Daniel is making a movie.
