CHRISTOPHER QUARATINO (LUTZ)
First Time EVER Speaking Engagement on Long Island, NY
On Wednesday, November 13, 1974 Ronald "Butch" DeFeo Jr shot his parents, 2 brothers and 2 sisters in the now well-known "Amityville House". It was 13 months later the "Lutz" family moved into the house on December 18, 1975 when Christopher was just 7 years old. Within 28 days the family fled the house on January 13, 1976 and since then their story has been seen and heard through several documentaries and film adaptations with the "Amityville Horror House" film being the scariest one of them all. BUT...there is a completely different story you haven't heard. What the public was NOT told was of George Lutz' involvement with the Occult and how that sparked the family's problems within the Amityville House and afterwards. Christopher, George's stepson, was witness to it and will be joining us on March 4-5 to share his story.
Is the story of the "Amityville Horror House" really the TRUE SCARY one the film depicts it to be? Or is the story actually a whole lot scarier than what you know? For the first time, here on Long Island, we will hear the story as only a "Lutz" can tell it.

Chris Di Cesare
"The Ghost Boy of Geneseo”
As a young college student, Chris Di Cesare's view of life was forever changed by a series of horrifying events in and around his dorm room: C2D1 at SUNY Geneseo. From early February through late April of 1985, he and his college friends endured what is now referred to as 'The C2D1 Haunting'. Apparitions sighted, disembodied voices heard, moving objects witnessed and frightening physical attacks all became part of the ordeal suffered by Chris - who quickly became the focal point of the haunting - and several of his college classmates. Long suppressed by the participants themselves, the extreme haunting eventually moved into the realm of ‘urban legend’.
An accomplished lecturer who recently appeared on Coast to Coast AM, Di Cesare has released his memoir, Surviving Evidence, (Dark Moon Press) which became an Amazon best seller, and offers a compelling first-hand accounting of the infamous extreme haunting from the person who found himself at its center … and survived it.

Those who saw the film "Fire in the Sky" know the story of Travis Walton and we're absolutely delighted to announce that "THE REAL" Travis Walton will be joining us at your Bizarre Haunted Flea Market on March 4-5!
Travis Walton has said that on November 5, 1975 he was working with a lumbering crew in the Sitgreaves National Forest near Snowflake, Arizona. While riding in a truck with six of hiscoworkers, they encountered a saucer-shaped object hovering over the ground approximately 110 feet away, making a high-pitched buzz. Walton claims he left the truck and approached it, when a beam of light suddenly appeared from the craft, knocking him to the ground. The other six men were frightened and drove away. Walton says that he awoke in a hospital-like room, being observed by three short, bald creatures. When they left, a person entered the room wearing some sort of helmet and led Walton to another room, where three more people put a clear plastic mask over his face and he blacked out. Walton has also said, he remembers nothing else until he found himself walking along a highway, with the flying saucer departing above him.
We don't know about you but we're REALLY looking forward to sitting down and listening to what Travis Walton has to say...in person! This is a very rare treat! There will be limited Photo-Op's available with Travis posting soon to the website. Meantime, get your full day/access tickets quick to join us in the auditorium for this special panel! This panel is only available to full day pass holders.
