Do you think the events in Amityville & Amity Island are linked in any way?

I’m a huge “Jaws” fan, and it’s on my list of movies that I will stop and watch no matter what. Other than “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, movies don’t get any better, in my opinion.
I’m also a big fan of the Amityville mythos, and have read the book multiple times. At one point in my life, I wanted to believe it was a truly “true story”, but now I enjoy it for what it really is, which is a really great haunted house story.
For more information on the original DeFeo murders and the story of the Lutz family, there are a few good documentaries on it, including this one on Netflix. There’s also one called “My Amityville Horror” which follows one of the Lutz children, now an adult, and still absolutely convinced the events were real.
I’m really happy with the artwork in this one. I actually drew out the entire Amityville house, only to mostly cover it up. Hope you like it as much as I do.
