The Amityville legend continues to grow. A new film about the allegedly haunted house will premiere this October, The Amityville Murders, from writer-director Daniel Farrands. But this time, we will witness the original events that led to the night an entire family was gunned down in their sleep by one of their own.
“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.”
John Robinson, Chelsea Ricketts, Paul Ben-Victor, Diane Franklin, Noa Brenner, Zane Austin, and Kue Lawrence star as the DeFeo family.
Eric Brenner, Lucas Jarach, and Daniel Farrands (A Haunting in Connecticut) produced. German Michael Torres of CineTel Films and Jim Jacobson serve as executive producers.
The Amityville Murders open in theaters on October 15, 2018.
