Couldn't put it down!
, June 20, 1998
This review is from: The Amityville Horror Conspiracy (Paperback)
I've always had my doubts about the truth behind the "Amityville Horror." Even the "true" story points out the financial strain that the family took on when they purchased the property. I too believe deeply in the supernatural. There are things that just cannot be explained. But "The Amityville Horror Conspiracy" makes sense. And it makes a sad point: how quick we are to award the un-true. Oddly enough, many people I have spoken to about Amityville are still not aware that it was all a con. Some of them are from the New Jersey/New York area. You can bet they'll be interested in reading my copy of the book. I also find it interesting that around Halloween of 1994 or 1995, the 700 Club did a short piece on the Amityville horror. Kathy Lutz was interviewed and still claimed that the incident was true. She went as far to say that the incidents portrayed in the movie (i.e., the substance coming from the keyholes, the stuff oozing from the walls) were accurate. (I don't remember the movie mentioning any substance coming from the keyholes.) Unbelievable. This book lays it out quite clearly. The "horror" that occurred in Amityville had nothing to do with the supernatural. I applaud Dr. Kaplan's efforts to expose the truth.
