Am 13. November 1974 ging bei der Suffolk County Police ein verzweifelter Anruf ein, der sie zur Adresse 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, Long Island, bestellte. Im Inneren des riesigen, im Kolonialstil gebauten Hauses entdeckten sie ein entsetzliches Verbrechen, das die eigentlich so friedliche Gemeinde zutiefst erschütterte: Eine komplette Familie war in ihren Betten regelrecht abgeschlachtet worden. In den folgenden Tagen gestand Ronald DeFeo, Jr., seine Eltern und vier Geschwister mit einem Gewehr im Schlaf erschossen zu haben und erklärte, "Stimmen" in dem Haus hätten ihn zu den grausamen Morden getrieben. Ein Jahr später ziehen George und Kathy Lutz mit ihren Kindern an den Ort des Verbrechens und meinen ihr Traumhaus gefunden zu haben. Aber kaum sind sie eingezogen, geschehen unheimliche und unerklärliche Vorfälle - albtraumartige Visionen und quälende Stimmen aus einer schrecklichen Vergangenheit tauchen auf, die noch in den Mauern zu stecken schien. Verstört und besorgt über den merkwürdigen Umgang ihrer Tochter mit einer - ihrer Fantasie entsprungenen - Freundin namens Jodie, kämpft Kathy darum, ihre Familie zusammen zu halten, während George sich zunehmend verändert und ganze Tage und Nächte im Keller des Hauses verbringt. Dort entdeckt er schließlich einen Geheimgang, der zu einem mysteriösen und gruseligen "Roten Raum" führt. Visionen und böse Stimmen quälen ihn und das Haus entwickelt ein Eigenleben, das letztlich zu den entsetzlichen Ereignissen führt, die als THE AMITYVILLE HORROR zu erschütternder Berühmtheit gelangten.Darsteller: Jimmy Bennett, Chloe Moretz, Melissa George, Ryan Reynolds, Annabel Armour, Brendan Donaldson, Danny McCarthy, David Gee, Isabel Conner, Jesse James, Jimmy Bennett, José Taitano, Nancy Lollar, Nand Buyl, Philip Baker Hall, Rachel Nichols, Rich Komenich

John Harris Rogers (1863?1930) served in Texas law enforcement for more than four decades, as a Texas Ranger, Deputy and U.S. Marshal, city police chief, and in the private sector as a security agent. He is recognized in history as one of the legendary "Four Captains" of the Ranger force that helped make the transition from the Frontier Battalion days into the 20th century, yet no one has fully researched and written about his life. Paul N. Spellman now presents the first full-length biography of this enigmatic man. During his years as a Ranger, Rogers observed and participated in the civilizing of West Texas. As the railroads moved out in the 1880s, towns grew up too quickly, lawlessness was the rule, and the Rangers were soon called in to establish order. Rogers was nearly always there. Likewise he participated in some of the most dramatic and significant events during the closing years of the Frontier Battalion: the Brown County fence cutting wars; the East Texas Conner Fight; the El Paso/Langtry Prizefight; the riots during the Laredo Quarantine; and the hunts for Hill Loftis and Gregorio Cortez. Rogers was the lawman who captured Cortez to close out one of the most infamous chases in Texas history. Rogers was wont to use the Bible as often as his six-gun, both with dramatic effect. That and his constant devotion to his family set him apart from the usual lawmen of that era. He was a man of the law and a man of God, a rare combination at the turn of the century. The book is published by University of North Texas Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie Curtis. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/038002/bk_acx0_038002_sample.mp3.
