Since its original release in 1977, The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson has gone on to inspire countless horror films and franchises, and now you’ll be able to learn about the true events that itself inspired the terrifying book.

Titled The Making of a Haunting: The Amityville Murders, the new docuseries is produced by B17 Entertainment and slated to release on Epix. The show’s four parts will investigate the real incident that inspired Anson’s book, where a man named Ronald Joseph DeFeo Jr. murdered his father, mother, two brothers, and two sisters in the infamous Amityville house back in 1974. Executive producers for the show include Lesley Chilcott, Blaine Duncan, Brooklyn Hudson, Amanda Raymond, Rhett Bachner and Brien Meagher.

There’s currently no release date just yet for The Making of a Haunting: The Amityville Murders, so those interested should stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Disney+ has already greenlit a second season for Star Wars: Andor.
