Very Scary People

4.9/5

Critic Rating

In 1974, a mass murder shook the sleepy waterfront town of Amityville, New York. One November night, police found the DeFeo family shot dead, face down in their beds. Only one survived: Ron DeFeo Jr., the eldest son with a troubled past. In this six-part series, host Donnie Wahlberg untangles the dark and complicated story of what happened that night, and unearths how these grisly murders sparked an infamous haunted tale.


Critic Reviews

Score: 4.9

Hannah Verdier • The Guardian Apr 21, 2022

"True crime fans can binge all episodes of this no-holds-barred retelling of the infamous mass murder in Amityville and its subsequent ghostly legend. It’s graphic, so it’s not for the faint-hearted."

Chanel Dubofsky • Vulture Mar 29, 2022

"What’s revealed is deeply disturbing, painful, and, yes, creepy, but not in the way you’re probably expecting."
