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

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."

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