I tried finding that damn picture using the search function and finally got to the point of pulling my hair out, lol. Anyway, I just finally said, "Aww screw it" and ended up hosting it for you.

Here's about the best I can do for now. I have another one of both Jim and Barbara Cromarty kneeling down inside of the red room for a publicity photo; I'll upload that tomorrow for you.

Not really. Kathy did find this room under the stairs in the basement, it was painted red and did smell like blood. The movie(s) blew it way out of proportion, though.
Ronnie DeFeo, in Holzer's interview, said it was nothing more than a storage closet, and another poster on this board noted that "a lot of things in the house were painted red; they must have gotten a discount on red paint" or something along those lines, lol.

Thanks for that...I knew I'd read about the "paint discount" somewhere. Glad I wasn't going crazy. :lol:

I also think the Lutzs' blew it out of proportion as well. Maybe all the read paint creeped them out.

I disagree. George Lutz didn't describe it in grandiose terms at all, he didn't describe it as large even. In fact I've only known him to give it three descriptions:

1. It was not large;

2. It had, at times, a horrific stench coming from it, although they could find no piping or anything else that might explain where a possible foul odor could be emanating from;

3. Harry, the dog, was acutely unsettled by it and refused to go near it. His reaction appeared to be that of fear.

I fail to see where this denotes "blowing it out of proportion." If you know otherwise, please show me, I'd like to see.

Likewise I never heard any of the Lutz family give a "supernatural" connotation to the room. The stench could be explained through a number of natural means. With dogs having a sense of smell that's far superior to humans, it may have been the smell alone that made Harry uneasy.

As a novice writer, i could take any mild mannered story and change it around so much that it would make ya stop and think...

Why is it so hard to comprehend or understand what anson did?

I mean i could tell ya a story about a nut case that jumps around in superman underwear and pretends to be a superhero whilst running thru the most populated streets in New Yuck..

think about it
