“A fascinating and frightening book” (Los Angeles Times)—the bestselling true story about a house possessed by evil spirits, haunted by psychic phenomena almost too terrible to describe. In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into their new home on suburban Long Island. George and Kathleen Lutz knew that, one year earlier, Ronald DeFeo had murdered his parents, brothers, and sisters in the house, but the property—complete with boathouse and swimming pool—and the price had been too good to pass up. Twenty-eight days later, the entire Lutz family fled in terror. This is the spellbinding, shocking true story that gripped the nation about an American dream that turned into a nightmare beyond imagining—“this book will scare the hell out of you” (Kansas City Star).

The Amityville MurdersThis quiet suburban street looks like a normal New York suburb but Lutz family who were the main characters in The Amityville Horror book went through hell in their newly purchased dream home. The said house has a tragic history and Lutz family supposedly experienced it first hand. Yes, it was confirmed that the book featured plenty of false accounts and recollections, but it helped put Amityville on the map and the story soon became well-known throughout the United States and the rest of the world. However, not all scary stories are made up and there has to be something to them, right? The real events that occurred on a cold autumn day in November of 1974 at a lovely house on 112 Ocean Avenue were as chilling as the most intense work of fiction out there.

On November 13, 1974 the quiet village of Amityville was rocked by the murders of six members of the DeFeo family at 112 Ocean Ave. The only surviving member of this tragic ordeal was Ronald DeFeo Jr., who was later charged and convicted to six-life-sentences. Still, the evidence shows that Ronnie "Butch" DeFeo could not have killed all six of his family members by himself, while they lay sleeping in their beds. Thirteen months later, the Lutz family moved into the lavish Dutch Colonial home and moved out mysteriously after just 28-days with only the clothes on their backs, claiming that the house was haunted; they would never return! Then came a media frenzy and with the release of Jay Anson's runaway best selling book, "The Amityville Horror," which was later transformed into a blockbuster movie, the story became an international phenomenon. What really happened at 112 Ocean Ave. in Amityville? Mentally Ill in Amityville (MIA), is the true story of the events as they occurred, with exclusive interviews and official documents of these dramatic events. MIA is a must read for anyone who wants to know the complete story behind the most famous haunted house in the world.

In November 1974, 23-year-old Ronnie DeFeo was convicted of murdering his entire family. Decades later, he was haunted by a terrifying demon from his past. But no one wanted to listen. Except one woman. For years, as the legend of the Amityville Horror murders were retold in print and film, DeFeo withdrew, growing more bitter as his twisted celebrity status increased. Then he received a note from Brooklyn psychic Jackie Barrett, saying she had been made aware of his presence by an unknown force. She didn't know if he was guilty, innocent, or insane--but she sensed that he was besieged by a fearsome evil. As Jackie began to talk to Ronnie DeFeo and discover the truth, she realized something startling: She hadn't been guided toward him merely to help him find salvation. There was someone else whose soul needed saving. Someone much closer. Here, in her own words, Jackie Barrett reveals the details of her astonishing relationship with Ronnie DeFeo, and, for the first time, his revelation of what really happened in that terrible night.

THE REAL AMITYVILLE HORROR: The True Story Behind The Brutal DeFeo Murders Settled in an affluent neighborhood in Long Island, New York is the one of the most infamous houses in all of America, or perhaps the world. The house with the iconic double-windows, white siding, and chimney at 112 Ocean Avenue is the home to the one of the most horrific family massacres in history, as well as an infamous haunting hoax. The haunting of the Amityville house is much more prominently known than the murders that took place in the same house. The Amityville or DeFeo family murders committed by Ronald "Butch" DeFeo Jr. have gone down in both true crime and pop culture history. The book and the subsequent horror film series about the case continue to fascinate and fear audiences years later. Both cases are clouded in unreliable testimony, profiteering, admitted fabrication, and greed. This is the real story of what happened at Amityville, and the events leading up to this horrific crime.

Demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, the original ghost hunters, sit down with fellow demonologist Tony Spera to discuss their most famous cases. Ed Warren began his ghost-hunting career at a young age because he lived in a real haunted house and witnessed paranormal activities firsthand. Clairvoyant and light medium Lorraine Warren discovered her psychic abilities such as reading aura, hearing spirits, detecting evil presences and/or preternatural entities with more and more exposure to the supernatural world. Lorraine appears on A&E's Paranormal State TV series. The one thing Lorraine has learned, there are no atheists in a true haunted house. The Amityville Horror, a true story, is the Warrens' most famous haunting investigation. The house at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, Long Island, New York, is the subject of international newspaper articles, thousands of websites, over a dozen books and at least ten films. The alleged diabolic possession of Ronald Defeo, Jr. and the Amityville murders by an evil presence is an ongoing debate. Were there ghosts, spirits and other invading psychic entities in the house? George and Kathy Lutz claimed they fled the house from an invading entity or entities. Was it a hoax? What happened to the Amityville Horror house? The Warrens tell all. Allen and Carmen Snedeker experienced the real horror of living in a possessed house in Southington, Connecticut, when they unknowingly moved into a haunted funeral home infested with paranormal activity. Only an exorcism sanctioned by the Catholic Church brought peace to the house. The Snedekers' story was made into a horror movie titled The Haunting in Connecticut and summoned more media attention the second time around than the first. Ed referred to the Jack and Janet Smurl family as the "chosen ones." The chosen is a person or persons God chose to prove to the world he is more powerful than any demon or devil. A book and TV movie titled The Haunted was made about this case. Ed describes methods used to provoke the spirits in the house and how they responded. Lorraine and Ed were in a friend's home when Ed noticed a "Werewolf in London" movie on television. This werewolf film was featured on the TV show Sightings and real London police officers were talking about being attacked by a real werewolf with real werewolf characteristics including hands, eyes and teeth. The Warrens knew about the werewolf myth, folklore and werewolf syndrome. They knew the many names associated with the werewolf mythology such as lycanthropy, lycanthrope and lycan. Ed explains how Lorraine got him involved in this case, why Bill Ramsey turned into a werewolf and what happened during Bill's exorcism. The Brookfield Demon murder trial is the first known court case in the United States alleging innocence due to demonic possession. The Warrens alleged David Glatzel, a boy at the time, was possessed by many devils. When Arne Cheyenne Johnson challenged the devil to possess him the devil took him up on his offer. Ed Warren shares why he thinks the courts were wrong not to allow "the devil in Connecticut made me do it" defense. Taking psychic photographs comes naturally to some people but others need a little guidance. Lorraine and Ed discuss the art of psychic photography and how to get psychic images with any camera. Ed shares a story about a psychic photo of a couple whose love survived beyond the grave. The conversations with the Ed and Lorraine are not limited to famous cases. They share stories about the mysterious places they have visited such as Borley Rectory, Cross Keys Hotel and Pub, Stonehenge, Whitby Abbey, the Fairy Glenn, haunted castles, the grave of Merlin the Wizard, Loch Ness, Transylvania and St. Joseph's Oratory. They also share stories of miraculous miracles and discuss human vampires and sorcerers.

Given the long-standing belief that children ought to be shielded from disturbing life events, it is surprising to see how many stories for kids involve killing. Bloody Murder is the first full-length critical study of this pervasive theme of murder in children’s literature. Through rereadings of well-known works, such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories, and The Outsiders, Michelle Ann Abate explores how acts of homicide connect these works with an array of previously unforeseen literary, social, political, and cultural issues. Topics range from changes in the America criminal justice system, the rise of forensic science, and shifting attitudes about crime and punishment to changing cultural conceptions about the nature of evil and the different ways that murder has been popularly presented and socially interpreted. Bloody Murder adds to the body of inquiry into America's ongoing fascination with violent crime. Abate argues that when narratives for children are considered along with other representations of homicide in the United States, they not only provide a more accurate portrait of the range, depth, and variety of crime literature, they also alter existing ideas about the meaning of violence, the emotional appeal of fear, and the cultural construction of death and dying.
