While he accepts that some people have extraordinary abilities, any talk of the possibility that ghosts or demons may be responsible for the unexplainable events plaguing his family is totally absurd in his opinion.
But when a horrific murder takes A supernatural thriller revolving around a series of mysterious voices accidentally recorded on an old reel to reel tape recorder. Seemingly they are the voices of the dead, lost in limbo, reaching out through the darkness for someone to hear them, to help them find peace.

It's better and scarier. Not that dreadful remake. May 01, Martin Rondina rated it it was amazing. En esta historia nos encontraremos con la familia Lutz, compuesta por un matrimonio y tres hijos.
Dec 17, Rebecca McNutt rated it it was amazing.
This book was definitely horrific, though kind of cheesy at some parts. What I enjoyed much more than the horror itself was the vibrant imagery, and the way that this Kodak moment family's subtle trip towards insanity is described. Definitely worth reading if you're a fan of all the nostalgia of 2oth century horror such as Audrey Rose , Magic or The Shining.
Sep 18, Obsidian rated it really liked it Shelves: Please note that I gave this book 3.
The facts are these: He was convicted of second-degree murder in November In December , George and Kathy Lutz and their three children moved into the house. After 28 days, the Lutzes left the house, claimi Please note that I gave this book 3. After 28 days, the Lutzes left the house, claiming to have been terrorized by paranormal phenomena while living there Jay Anson then wrote a book about the Lutzes experiences they had and what ultimately caused them to flee the house.
First off, if this was a fiction book I would have given it 5 stars. Parts of the book you start to think of as too outlandish to be true I will get to that later , but Anson takes a deft look at George and Kathy and manages to make you feel everything that they experienced.
Where can i download free ebooks about the amityville horror?
The story is broken up between these two and a priest that came to bless the house who reportedly became ill shortly after visiting, and felt as if he was being spiritually attacked by a presence from the house. The reason why I gave this 3. I did not really like George Lutz most of the book. It didn't make a lot of sense what was going on with him. I think that Anson also unwittingly revealed an angle for why the Lutzes would lie about something like this too based on a couple of things that George was upset about IRS audit, paying a lot of money for the home, etc.
Kathy I felt detached from a lot in the book because we don't really get a sense of her until things progress further along. I had a lot of questions about her first marriage, how she met George, and her family. The two of them felt very cut off from me as a reader. The priest in the story didn't come off well at all he pretty much leaves the Lutzes to their fate and that whole aspect didn't really make a lot of sense. Plus I was curious how Anson would go and interview someone and get them to admit that they pretty much didn't care about an innocent family, he just wanted to be safe from harm.
The writing definitely sets the mood and you keep waiting for something more terrible to happen to the Lutzes. Part of you starts to wonder if they are not just feeling things because they moved into a home where several people were murdered. The flow at times gets a lot choppy because a lot of things really didn't make sense here or there the pig named Jodie and the book at times would have an event happen but the family would ignore it. Anson brought in some details about the home there are drawings included , but not much about the neighborhood or even the founding of Amitville.
George Lutz makes an outrageous claim about a former owner and an Indian burial ground isn't there always one and it doesn't appear that Anson fact checked him at all. After I completed this I of course found out that it is more than likely 99 percent true that the Lutzes in league with a defense attorney of Ronald DeFeo Jr. The Lutzes were in trouble with the iRS, they had spent too much on the home. At one point a brother in law comes over and his money is misplaced and the Lutzes heavily imply the spirits must have done it yeah my bet is they stole it.
The Lutzes went and sued a host of people just Google and the trial showed that the book was fiction. I do say that since it is a classic horror novel I read this not only for bingo, but also for my Horror book list that is recommended to horror readers, I am glad that I finally read this. I can finally say I've read Amityville Horror. I took a star off because it wasn't scary.
If you are unfamiliar with the Amityville Horror, this story is about the Lutz family. Long Island. They lived there for 28 days before they fled. Backstory, this is said to be a true story. As in, these people are real.
They actual Well They actually lived at Amityville house. What could be a fabrication, is their account of the 28 days they lived in their new home. George and Kathy, along with their 3 children Chris, Danny and Missy were very excited about this new and very spacious house. They knew, prior to purchasing the home, that the Dafoe family was murdered in the house. They even went as far as purchasing the dead families furniture.
George and Kathy knew a family was murdered in the house a year before. That the family was killed in the very bedrooms they planned on sleeping in. They even went as far as buying the very beds the children died in. I don't understand. That right there is asking for paranormal backlash.
Okay, so for 28 days the family experienced horrifying unexplained phenomena and continued to stay there against the advice of the mother in law, a priest, a friends girl-friend, even the realtor was iffy selling the house. After the first incident I would have fled He was obsessed with warming the house up. He was obsessed with checking the boat house. But he never wanted to kill his family like it's shown in the movie.
I have only seen the most recent movie from Why do directors create violence when there isn't any? In the book George is a very loving man. Concerned about his family and their well being. At times he is in a trance like state, but isn't homicidal.

That always irritates me, when movies change the tone or personality of a main character. Bottom line, this was a fun and entertaining book. Is it scary? In my biased opinion, nothing is scarier than The Shining. I stand by that answer for a long time to come.
Find me a scary book! To those that read this review. Help me search for a really horrifying read: View 2 comments. The Amityville Horror is said to be a work of non-fiction as it is the story of the Lutz family and the 28 days they spent in what was supposed to be their dream home.

In his defense he claimed to have heard voices telling him to kill his family but he was instead diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder and sentenced to six consecutive life sentences. He remains in prison to this day. There was never anything mentioned about paranormal activity, just a horrifying mass murder. George Lutz constantly suffered from a chill and spent the majority of his time feeding the fire.
Kathleen Lutz felt a presence in the kitchen which laid an innocuous hand on her shoulder only to feel that presence again later which squeezed the air out of her so much that she passed out. The two state that their emotions would often get the best of them for no apparent reason which led them both beating their children which had never happened before. But that was only the first few days of their stay. Even the green goop that ran down the walls failed to horrify but what did horrify me was when George actually stuck his finger in it and proceeded to taste it.
Taste random shit running down their walls. For fucks sake. I did make the mistake of reading this in bed, in the middle of the night, only stopping at a part where a character woke in the middle of the night to find some ghosty child touching her foot trying to wake her up.
Suffice it to say I felt little fingers touching my feet all night. It would have helped, maybe, if Anson had eased up on his use of the exclamation points whenever something ominous happened in order to be taken more seriously. I just did this with Psycho the Hitchcock version not the one with Aragorn and enjoyed the hell out of it. I may even have to watch the newer Amityville as well because 1.
Aug 29, Sarah Sammis rated it it was amazing Shelves: The s seems to have been the decade for the horror genre, especially ones focusing on demonic possessions.
Mix horror genre with true crime and you'll end up in a gray area that includes The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson. The book reads like a novel and the Wikipedia entry calls it a novel but the Library of Congress categorizes it as non-fiction, specifically demonology case-studies and parapsychology New York and it's call number is BF U6 A So what are facts? In December t The s seems to have been the decade for the horror genre, especially ones focusing on demonic possessions. In December the Lutz family moved into a farm house in Amityville that had been the scene of a grisly murder.
In January of they moved out the house citing demonic activity as the reason for their short stay. Over the course of the book Jay Anson lists out a number of clues that point at paranormal and perhaps even demonic activity. Except for the white hooded figure at the end which may very well have been invented to prove a point the rest of the book's events seem pretty common place.
The house still exists, by the way, though the front facade has been changed as has the address. It even has it's own wiki entry. Like the Lutz's, my family and I are living in a fixer upper. We've had our own series of strange events in our home but we've managed to stay nearly five years. Since my home shares a lot of things in common, I thought I'd make a check list to see if my house is haunted.
Signs your house might be haunted: Fly infestation even in winter? Strange cold spots? Strange sounds at night? Waking up at the same time each night? A pet who likes to sleep all day?
A crucifix turning itself upside down? Strange hidey holes under the stairs? The smell of excrement? Misbehaving toilets? A broken banister? Random and bizarre damage to doors and windows? Other things randomly breaking? Other strange smells? Or it could just be old and not well maintained. How about your house? How does it hold up against the Amityville test? Sep 21, Brandon Burrup rated it it was amazing. I read this a couple years ago during the summer.
It only took a day or two. It wasn't so much scary as morbidly fascinating as I read it. However, after reading it, I simply could not get certain images out of my head. A white entity coming down the stairs, red eyes staring at me through a window in the dark, etc. I am forever scarred by that second image. I simply can not deal with open blinds at night. The other image The problem was there is a staircase right in that room and for months when I would come up to sleep there I would close my eyes and be too terrified to open them for fear of seeing some white demon ghost thing coming to get me.
So I'd lay there with my eyes closed too afraid to open them, yet too afraid to fall asleep. What misery. The scary thing about the book is how things happen so slowly and gradually that as a reader you are caught in the same delusion as the family living in the house. Needless to say, I will not be naming any of my children Jodie and they will not be allowed to have any imaginary friends.
Heh funny note: Feb 28, Michael rated it really liked it Shelves: If you in no way, shape or form believe in this event or the supernatural, why did you read this book? I mean, knowing things you've never seen would mean that you have the very supernatural type powers you so vehemently claim aren't real.
I'm not saying all the things in this bo I have never seen so much disdain and anger directed towards a BOOK as I do in some of these reviews for The Amityville Horror. I'm not saying all the things in this book happened. But as far as the book is concerned, the actual story I read? Well, I'll say this, whether it's all true, partially true or none of it's true Having grown up in the 70's I remember when this story was at it's peak.
And all the hoopla surrounding it. So it's kinda a walk down memory lane. My only advice is, if you don't have a taste for the supernatural. Or at the least an open mind. And if you don't like a book, just say it wasn't your cup o' tea or you just don't believe it to be true. There is no reason to try to destroy it for others with a lecture in your review. Or to talk about others like they're idiots for feeling compelled to believe the story.
All the hateful reviews are uncalled for. This was a very enjoyable ghost story, true or not. Pero dejando todo esto aparte, hay momentos en que se pasa verdadero miedo leyendo este libro, sobre todo si se lee de noche. Eta historinha tensa que me deixou com medo hein? Eu moro sozinho, gente. Apesar de todo o desespero, eu tive uma dificuldade com a escrita.
Enfim, estranho. Nov 24, Maxine Booklover Catlady rated it it was amazing Shelves: I need to read this again and do a fresh review! As a teenager I would read my dad's book collection, he was big into horror, this one was very scary especially as based on truth and Images from this book stayed with me for years! That pigs head OMG! I hope it scares the crap out of me again.
How can The Devil explain what Communism exists for? August Reading Assignment 1 13 Sep 15, Readers Also Enjoyed. About Jay Anson. Jay Anson. After the runaway success of that novel, he wrote , which also dealt with a haunted house.
He began as a copy boy on the New York Evening Journal in and later worked in advertising and publicity. With more than documentary scripts for television to his credit, he was as Jay Anson November 4, — March 12, was an American author whose most famous work was The Amityville Horror. With more than documentary scripts for television to his credit, he was associated with Professional Films, Inc. He died in This we may call the religious stance. One certainty is that the phenomena reported in this book do happen-and to ordinary people and families who are neither exhibitionists nor attention seekers.
Often the response of the positive scientist is to deny the reality of reported data and to refuse even to examine the evidence; here, it appears, we are dealing with a prejudice.
On the other hand, those scientists who credit the evidence and apply scientific methodology to attempting an explanation generally restrict the possibilities to science as it is known today, or presume that projected findings of empirical science will one day explain the phenomena. This is one reasonable and integral approach. Superstitious people seize on psychic phenomena as justification for a sometimes unreasonable approach to life.
Interjecting irrational fears and senseless preconceived notions or explanations into situations like the Amityville case Jay Anson describes here simply increases the suffering of those involved. The prejudice thus exhibited is clear.
See a Problem?
Needless to say, incorporated in a religiously oriented person's point of view are the data of revelation. Since revelation presumes communication from God, and in turn presumes the existence of God and His interest in human affairs, we can see that here, too, a prejudice is implied-to wit, the prejudice of faith.
The balanced person of faith will admire and accept the findings of modern science but conclude that, even projecting future developments, it is myopic to think that nature does not reveal a depth of reality beyond the empirical realm of natural science.
As is the case with an open minded scientist, a sensible believer may also accept an integrated approach to psychic phenomena. Thus we observe that whatever stance an individual adopts, it will rest on certain prejudices that cannot be proven to the satisfaction of those who choose to adopt a different construction. When psychic phenomena occur in the life of a family, and that family looks for help, its members may be repelled equally by the naYvete of the superstitious, the uncertainty of those who profess belief in the supernatural but seem ashamed and confused at their own beliefs, and by the haughty pride of the positive scientist asserting with certainty things contradictory to one's own experience.
Unfortunately, this complex web of ignorance, bias, and fear causes a great deal of suffering for the unsuspecting family suddenly tossed into an upsetting and frightening situation. It is just such a case to which Jay Anson addresses himself. If the story were fiction, it would easily be dismissed as irrelevant.
