Amityville haunting survivor Christopher Quaratino aka Christopher Lutz is one of the three children of George and Kathy Lutz. Christopher is breaking his silence taking issue with the facts regarding his fateful 28 days in what became known as "The Amityville Horror."
Now 43 years old, Christopher has read that two new Amityville films will be released in 2012 by major film companies and wants to set the record straight...TO TELL EVERYONE WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.
Christopher, who maintains the haunting was real, yet very different from how it has been portrayed to the public, had this to say in response to the new film announcements, “They want to reinvent the story' A whole new generation won’t know what really happened' Just as all those that don’t know, who have followed this story for the last 35 years. The time has come for me to set the record straight, a fresh look from an alternative perspective, through the eyes of one of the children who peered out from those iconic quarter round windows. An eyewitness to the actual events that occurred in the Amityville house and what followed.”
In a rare comment from any of the Lutz children, Christopher at the time the 2005 Amityville Horror remake released in theaters said, “George Lutz, brought the troubles on himself (and our family) by dabbling in the occult, it wasn't just the House that was the problem. That’s why it followed us.”
Christopher concluded by throwing down this challenge to the film makers “I SAY THIS, at what you do, you are good, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO "AMITYVILLE" and what happened after.... "I CAN TELL A CREEPIER STORY THAN YOU!" I'm calling a contest and the pubilc shall be the Judge.
Jason Blum, the producer of the movie "Paranormal Activity" is the producer of one of the new movies christopher is competing against.
