Explanation of the Book:

“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).

Explanation of the Book:

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.

Explanation of the Book:

The “extraordinary” true story of the St. Louis, a German ship that, in 1939, carried Jews away from Hamburg—and into an unimaginable ordeal (The New York Times). On May 13, 1939, the luxury liner St. Louis sailed from Hamburg, one of the last ships to leave Nazi Germany before World War II erupted. Aboard were 937 Jews—some had already been in concentration camps—who believed they had bought visas to enter Cuba. The voyage of the damned had begun. Before the St. Louis was halfway across the Atlantic, a power struggle ensued between the corrupt Cuban immigration minister who issued the visas and his superior, President Bru. The outcome: The refugees would not be allowed to land in Cuba. In America, the Brown Shirts were holding Nazi rallies in Madison Square Garden; anti-Semitic Father Coughlin had an audience of fifteen million. Back in Germany, plans were being laid to implement the final solution. And aboard the St. Louis, 937 refugees awaited the decision that would determine their fate. Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan Witts have re-created history in this meticulous reconstruction of the voyage of the St. Louis. Every word of their account is true: the German High Command’s ulterior motive in granting permission for the “mission of mercy;” the confrontations between the refugees and the German crewmen; the suicide attempts among the passengers; and the attitudes of those who might have averted the catastrophe, but didn’t. In reviewing the work, the New York Times was unequivocal: “An extraordinary human document and a suspense story that is hard to put down. But it is more than that. It is a modern allegory, in which the SS St. Louis becomes a symbol of the SS Planet Earth. In this larger sense the book serves a greater purpose than mere drama.”

Explanation of the Book:

Thirty miles outside of New York City, nestled in the Long Island town of Amityville, stands the house forever linked to the Amityville Horror phenomenon. On November 13, 1974, the estate was the scene of mass murder. Using a .35 Marlin rifle, 23-year-old Ronald J. DeFeo Jr. murdered his entire family while they were asleep, which included his parents and four siblings. Thirteen months later, the Lutz family purchased the home at a drastically reduced price of $80,000 (due to the murders) but only lasted 28 days before leaving it. Their spine-tingling tales of paranormal activity are what propelled the legend of the Amityville Horror and spawned a torrent of books, documentaries, and films. 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.

Explanation of the Book:

We've all heard of the Amityville house (mostly because Ryan Reynolds starred in the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror). Just the mention of the phrase "Amityville Horror" is sure to send chills down any horror fan's back-the house, inspiration for a book about its demonic haunting and a variety of slasher films, has become famous in its own right. But did you know the series of horror films are based on alleged real-life events that happened in an actual house that *still exists* in 2018? And the IRL details are just as freaky as the Hollywood versions, which, like, never happens. Everything on the Amityville case is right here for you. Now it is up to you to decide what you believe. There is an evil, an evil so real that it seeps into the very core of one's being somewhere between this world and the next. Sometimes what lays between the realms of reality and fantasy lies darkness waiting to seep into our world, grabbing hold and plunging us into the bitter brink of hell itself, the darkness of which there is no escape. Could one household such an evil presence that it could cause a man to murder his whole family in their beds as they sleep? An unseen force that speaks out within the darkness of the early morning hours? We have all seen the movies or read the many books on the house that once held the address of 112 Ocean Avenue, a house that has been nicknamed the horror house, but until now the truth has never been told and the true-crime photos and court documents have never been released to the public. Was it real or a hoax?
