Amityville Survivor Speaks!

Christopher John Quaratino [43], formerly known as Christopher Lutz, (one of the REAL children of George and Kathy Lutz, the protagonists of The Amityville Horror movie) has confirmed the haunting and is taking a stand-- challenging the makers of the new Amityville Horror movie!

In a rare comment from Quaratino, he said:

“George Lutz, brought the troubles on himself (and our family) by dabbling in the occult, it wasn’t just the House that was the problem. That’s why it followed us.”

Bob Weinstein in his joint deal with Miramax and Dimension announced at Cannes film festival that his company is moving forward with its new movie “The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes,” to be released in theaters 27 January 2012. Jason Blum who produced the “Paranormal Activity” films, which have grossed close to $400 million worldwide, is set to produce. Blum is quoted by Variety as saying, “I'm thrilled to be working with Bob to reinvent one of the all-time great horror franchises, and I think this new installment will really hit home with a new generation of moviegoers.”

In a recent comment Weinstein said, “We are thrilled to return to the mythology of the Amityville Horror with a new and terrifying vision that will satisfy our existing fans and also introduce an entirely new audience to this popular haunting phenomenon.”

In response to the films announcement, Quaratino has made a clear challenge to the makers of the movie:

“They want to reinvent the story? A whole new generation won’t know what really happened? Just as all those that don’t know, who have followed this story for the last 35 years. The time has come for me to set the record straight, a fresh look from an alternative perspective, through the eyes of one of the children who peered out from those iconic quarter round windows. An eyewitness to the actual events that occurred in the Amityville house and what followed.”

“Therefore, I am calling out The Weinstein brothers, Bob and Harvey, your producers and writers. And Hannibal Films who have already begun making the next movie sequels to the story that should have died so long ago “The Amityville Horror". To these companies, who are bowing down to the golden calf milking the story one more time allying themselves with the top horror writers and producers in the business.”

“I SAY THIS, at what you do, you are good, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO ‘AMITYVILLE and what happened after...I CAN TELL A CREEPIER STORY THAN YOU!”

“I am challenging you to a contest. The contest should be judged in the vein of American Idol, where the public casts their vote to decide the outcome, and ultimate winner. The specific categories to be judged, should be the very thing your audiences so desire. The best stories of all time are what they are, because of the very things I am challenging you in.”

“The specific categories are as follows:
1. You keep it Realistic. I'll keep it Honest.
2. Thought Provoking
3. Genuine Chill Producing (shocking jumps, don’t count)
4. Psychologically Impacting”

“If you choose to accept this Challenge, do so publicly. I await your answer!”

Quaratino is looking to generate enough media attention that the movie companies and the media take him seriously. He also appears very serious about setting the record straight.
