You have heard the stories about the Amityville house being haunted by evil spirits. But you don't know the terrifying story of the family that died in the house at the hands of the eldest son. 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. Starring John Robinson ("Transformers"), Chelsea Ricketts ("Jackals") and featuring Diane Franklin and Burt Young (both seen in 1982's "Amityville II: The Possession"). Q&A with writer/director Daniel Farrands and cast members after the screening. Moderated by Lydia Hearst. Screening sponsored by Skyline Entertainment.

About the Director
Daniel Farrands sold his first screenplay to TriStar Pictures (a modern version of THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW) when he was only 18. By the age of 24, his passion for horror landed him the assignment to write Dimension Films’ HALLOWEEN: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS, starring the late Donald Pleasence and Paul Rudd in his feature film debut.
