Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 701 comments 28 Days of Terror in a House Possessed by Evil Spirits

In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into their dream home, the same home where Ronald DeFeo had murdered his parents, brothers and sisters just one year earlier.

the psychic phenomena that followed created the most terrifying experience the Lutz family had ever encountered, forcing them to flee the house in 28 days, convinced that it was possessed by evil spirits.

Their fantastic story, never before disclosed in full detail, makes for an unforgettable book with all the shocks and gripping suspense of The Exorcist, The Omen or Rosemary's Baby, but with one vital difference...the story is true

I'm glad to have ticked off another horror classic but I wasn't highly impressed with it. Maybe it would have been more of an emotional read if it had been created as an entirely fictional read and only briefly based on the Lutz family ordeal, if it ever really occurred at all.
