you forgot to mention lutz's buddy, osuna! it's his baby now. but how can osuna release any "ghost pics" from the house when he discovered it was never haunted?

The book never happened in 2000 because Osuna quit the project!

I wonder which Lutz's (ric was speaking of) spilled the beans (so to speak) as the whole thing being "fiction", back in the friendly days?

hmm? I would toss out a couple guesses...

he claims that he was told by several lutz members of a (the) hoax. tossed that in as well. very interesting wouldn't you agree? but yeah, not much of a point here of him being on to something. old news that haunting.

you stated about osuna and publishing rights. he did publish some.

You know something interesting is in at least one interview Laura Didio talked about this picture. She didn't know what it was. I would think the people there would come out and say "oh that was just Paul Bartz". I honestly don't know. He did wear glasses but the hair doesn't look like his.

I think it may have had something to do with Ric Osuna being told by George Lutz that Osuna's book (which apparently was written like just a plan) was actually Osuna's finished product. When politely suggested he should take some lessons in writing and then they would reconsider that is when Osuna took offence. I got the impression that Ric Osuna was not big on taking what he deemed to be criticism, when the reality of writing is that it always needs re-working and editing.

When The Night The DeFeo's Died was released a few years later it was not just a retelling (or reimagining) of the murders but more an expose on George Lutz and the allegations of a fraud as far as the haunting was concerned.

:lol:


The idea for a picture book was around before Ric Osuna was on the scene. I think that maybe Osuna wanted to do more than the picture book project and do an actual written book (mentioned above which got pooh-poohed) whereas George was only interested in a picture book. It was a long time ago that I first heard an interview on Lou Gentile where George and Ric Osuna had an on the air heated discussion where Osuna (I think) mentioned something about not being interested in the picture book.

according to osuna, at some point lutz was only interested in putting out another piece of fiction, such as film/book. why the idea of a picture book may have been around beforehand, I doubt it never got off the ground and was merely only an idea. but then one wonders why osuna would write up a manuscript (pro-haunting) then do the usual in the Amityville world and flip-flop and do his own thing? sour grapes perhaps? my guess is he just couldn't keep forcing himself to buy into the haunting after being around George for a while? enter gates. :?
