Shattered Hopes: The True Story of the Amityville Murders is a documentary trilogy into horror, homicide and hoax; mob, murder, mayhem; death, dysfunction; forensics and fraud. Nearly six years in the making, Shattered tells the story behind one of America's most infamous mass murders---the DeFeo family slaughter in November 1974---which spawned The Amityville Horror franchise of haunted house movies. PART I: FROM HORROR TO HOMICIDE chronicles the genesis of the DeFeo family, their acquisition of their now infamous Dutch Colonial home and its history while capturing an intimate narrative of a dysfunctional family on the verge of disaster. Joining in the narrative, DeFeo family friends, people who have NEVER been interviewed before or since, paint a vivid picture of what was transpiring in the DeFeo home leading up the fateful night of November 13, 1974. Their narrative is nothing less than shocking. Shattered, through its recreated scenes of life at 112 Ocean Avenue, coupled with a gripping narrative by those who were there and tell their stories firsthand, will leave you on the edge of your seat. This film pushes the boundaries of documentary filmmaking to the edge. Narrated by the Emmy-Winning Edward Asner, the Shattered Trilogy is a documentary the likes of which have never been seen.moreless
