Another in our occasional series of "people who over-react to criticism, just like Katzenbach"

Take a bow, Dylan Saccoccio...
Dylan Saccoccio wrote:Sorry that my book evoked such a horrible response. May I ask how you discovered it? I'm an indie author. I work over 100 hours a week to get my books to succeed so that I don't have to be a slave anymore. This review is not good for my business, so unless your desire is to ruin my dreams, it would mean a great deal if you could remove this review from my work and forget about it. But if it's your desire to hurt me financially and ruin my business, then it's understandable why you would post such a harmful review.
Dylan Saccoccio wrote:Leaving a 1 star review on a book says much more about what kind of person does such a thing, and then attacks it for being "pretentious," which is an erroneous statement that is defamation at best.
Dylan Saccoccio wrote:Do you have empathy? Do you know what it's like to make something for a living? Are you human? Or do you just look at other people like they're automatons that you can slander as though your actions don't manifest consequences?
Dylan Saccoccio wrote:The only thing I'm concerned about is how people that don't my book even find it. It's not being advertised other than social media. For all the people that observe this exchange, when you leave a negative review on someone's work, you are potentially driving away a person that could have had their life changed for the better by that work. For someone to leave such a toxic review on a book that contains so much gnosis, that people had to die in order to learn in the past, is an utter disgrace to the human condition.

Ha, looks like Dylan deleted his profile and all his posts have vanished.

And Sherb, since you will get to see it before the rest of us, don't spoil it for us either. ;) I really would hate to think that the ending was something we knew all along. . .

I'm gonna say something nice about Shattered Hopes...


Here goes...


*deep breath*


I like the house model, it looked great. Although those famous eye windows were far too big. The oversized ones worked great in the first three movies but look kinda wrong on a model of the real house.

That's the only nice thing I have to say about this crap. :D

A friend of mine supplied this awesome quote on Shattered Hopes when we were discussing the model:

"Yeah the house model is incredible, but then you watch the film itself... and quickly realize that the only thing you'll find dripping down it's walls is pure bull****!"

I laughed so hard!

Agreed! Sad that a low budget mess like SH was able to get the house so right and Hollywood couldn't (or just didn't want to).

is this defeo interview dvd ever going to be released its taking forever to get one and am anxious to see it

SHATTERED HOPES: THE TRUE STORY OF THE AMITYVILLE MURDERS
There's been a switch-over from Amityville Holdings to a new distribution plan, so the change has delayed the release. But, we anticipate news any day and instant availability of DVD's


:think: I wonder who thought distributing this would be a good idea?

I'm confused. I haven't been following the latest on shattered hopes for a while now so have no idea what's going on anymore or what parts have or haven't been released after part II.

Last I heard they were thinking of spliting part III into two CDs (technically creating a fourth part) but did this ever happen? Also do the two interview DVDs count as part of the shattered hopes series or are they spin-offs?

Ok... Yeah, Part III became so unwieldy it was split into two discs - with the first half available for streaming - but when it arrives, both parts will form "Part III".

Nothing has been released since Part II, but the Ronnie interview disc is immanent. Ryan is meant to be putting the final touches to it (it's out before Part III) but has gone silent, except to say another company have expressed an interest in releasing it, causing the delay.

Traditionally, this is when Ryan fires off another lawsuit, right when he's about to release a disc. He moans about all the legal DVD "paperwork" he has to file, goes silent, then emerges with an epic suit.

It's like an extreme form of procrastination - F*ck all this paperwork, I'm gonna sue somebody!

When SH was first talked about, I was kind of interested in seeing it. Once I saw Part I (thanks Kathy!), I was not impressed. I basically lost interest in the remainder of the series because somehow I just knew RK wasn't going to give us anything new in the way of evidence or anything else. To think that the whole series isn't available on DVD or streaming is absurd. It seems like it's been 10 years in the making and people are still waiting on the release of the last part and I see a lot of excuses as to why it hasn't been released. Totally unprofessional IMO.
