For Immediate Release
Katco Media and The Amityville Murders? Further the True Story in 2006
Las Vegas, NV (October 30, 2005 ) ? Autumn 2006 promises to be an exciting season with the revisiting of America's most infamous, alleged haunted house. Katco Media Publisher Ryan Katzenbach explained, "Next fall, Katco Media will release a 90-minute exploration of the tragedy that befell the DeFeo family in November 1974. The untitled documentary project is based on Ric Osuna's The Night The DeFeos Died*, and will mark the company's debut to the world of multimedia and film entertainment."
The project will incorporate on-screen interviews with author Ric Osuna, whose five-year research endeavor resulted in his true-crime book, which continues to sell today. The documentary will incorporate not only on-camera interviews with various eyewitnesses, including Geraldine DeFeo, but it will also incorporate archive footage, crime-scene photos and re-enactments of the murders and Ronald DeFeo's subsequent trial. While interviews will begin taping in November, the reenactments will likely be shot throughout winter and early spring in California and New York.
Katco Media and Ryan Katzenbach plan to take the Amityville story one-step further. In February 2006, Katco Media will release The Amityville Courthouse that will expose nearly 30 years of legends, lies, and litigation centered on the alleged haunting of the "Amityville Horror" house. The book is being developed in-house by Katco Media.
"The book will take a historical look at the various lawsuits filed through the years," Katzenbach said, "as the Amityville players fought to maintain control---and money---by perpetuating a hoax upon the public."
Also in 2006, Ric Osuna will be publishing The Amityville Murders? in paperbook format through Noble Kai Media. More details on this project will appear at http://www.amityville98ders.com over the coming weeks.
Will we still get Amityville Courthouse? Up-to-date to include Katzenbach VS Peter Pisasni?
Anyway, Shattered Hopes and proved to be the gift that keeps on giving. So let's raise a glass to...
