As a member of both boards, I have to say that this board has some very rude, nasty people. I was even sent threatening, rude private messages on Facebook from some of these members. I turned them over to Ryan to add to his stockpile of harassment to him and his fans. Those same people tried to spew acid all over every post on the Shattered Hopes page. Ryan allowed those people to express their opinions until they became hateful and harassing. Why should Ryan allow his fans to be attacked? Even some fans who stay on Ryan's page have differences of opinion, BUT they continue to be respectful to eachother.sherbetbizarre wrote:Why are we still relevant?
With a $200,000 trilogy to promote - and the ghost of The Amityville Horror to lay to rest - you keep coming back here?
You weren't far off when you said only around 10 people view this site, yet - with the film out in the world - we're still a problem?
We wouldn't be if Part I was something you could stand proudly behind.
Why have none of the horror sites been notified Part I is out? Did you go for the True Crime market like you said you would? Or maybe you're content to sell a "few hundred copies" to Facebook fans, while $200,000 disappears down a black hole?
Point being - I think you are deliberately keeping the film from the mainsteam in fear you'll get "found out".
You may be happy as a dozen good notices make you "feel humble", but is Gail happy? Diana? How has this Facebook ghetto furthered their careers while you conspire to sell as few copies as possible? Don't they want their money back? Do Amityville Holdings? Who are Amityville Holdings anyway? Your parents?
The world is never going to see Amityville the way you see Amityville if no-one watches your film. So go and promote it. Properly!
Let's see what the big-boys make of it.
What are you scared of? That a real journalist will find your story and do some digging?
Better to keep things low-key, feel "humble" and live in the gutter where the FAQ are the big bad meanies.
Rubbish - you wanted to change to world. Shattered Hopes was going to be a game-changer. And yet... you come crawling back here and you sound broken. Where the hell has your confidence gone? It's not our fault that your Youtube clips cannot paper over the cracks...
So... man-up, quit the whiny blackmail techniques, and see if you can fool people on a GRAND scale.
What are you waiting for..?
Why are we still relevant?
There are always going to be unanswered questions in this story that no one will be able to answer, but I believe that Ryan has stayed subjective and has found and presented the facts better than anyone else ever has or ever will. As far as the Lutz kids go, they contiue to clash with eachother and flip flop on the "truth" when it fits their needs at the moment.
Some one mentioned that this film will be the end of Ryan's career in the industry. This statement makes me laugh as I personally have shown it to a good friend in the "real big players" industry and my friend liked it very much. I will not give out my friends name as I am loyal and do not want my friend to be harassed. It would be a big mistake for anyone to harass my friend anyway as my friend has many powerful friends in the industry.
Ryan and his fans and friends have every right to come on here and defend him and the lies being told about him. As far as Geraldine goes, you either believe her or not, but seriously, the only thing people with little minds can do is attack her appearance?! Making fun of how she looks does not make you look intelligent as any idiot can make fun of anyone. And that is the usual response by people who are not smart enough to back up what they are claiming. I do believe Geraldine. I believe she is legit and has way too much inside knowlege that no one else could come forward with.
