In Memory of George Lutz.
George Lee Lutz, whose brief stay in an Amityville, Long Island, New York, spawned one of the most famous haunted house stories ever. At the age of 59, George died of natural causes on May 8, 2006. In 1975, Mr. Lutz, a former land surveyor, became famous after moving his new bride and three children into a three-story Dutch colonial home in Long Island. About a year earlier, six members of the DeFeo family had been fatally shot in this particular home. Ronald DeFeo Jr., the eldest son, was convicted of the six murders in 1975. According to Mr. Lutz, the Lutz family lived in this home for 28 days before being driven out by spirits. The family's eerie stay became the source for Jay Anson's 1977 popular book entitled "The Amityville Horror". The book spawned a 1979 film by the same title and a 2005 movie remake. Both the book and movies, chronicled the horrors that the Lutz family went through including; visions of walls oozing slime, moving furniture, a visit from a demonic pig named Jodie, an invisible band playing music and spontaneous levitations. The franchise made a cult figure of Mr. Lutz, who some claimed bore a creepy resemblance to Ronald DeFeo.
