Ric Osuna spent approximately three years investigating the Amityville case. "Ghosts and demons never dwelled in the Amityville house," says author Ric Osuna. "Only a dysfunctional family that found themselves on the path to cold-blooded murder. A corrupt judicial system, the Italian Mob, and flying demons, this story has it all." Due to the huge surge of interest in his book, author Ric Osuna participated in more than a dozen TV and radio shows across the globe, including A&E's City Confidential and The Travel Channel's On Location series. In addition, The Night the DeFeos Died has been the subject of several editorials in Internet-based and traditional publications, including the New York Post. Beyond Amityville, Ric Osuna is also a documentary filmmaker. His directorial debut was Subversive Doubt, a 2007 feature documentary about the controversial Yucca Mountain nuclear repository proposed to house the nation's spent nuclear fuel rods in the barren Nevada desert less than 3 hours away from Las Vegas. Osuna spent over a year interviewing experts that included activists against and proponents for the repository. More recently, Ric Osuna directed The UnAmerican Struggle, a feature-length documentary that examines the resurgence of racism, misogyny, sexism, and xenophobia in America brought about by Donald Trump's words and actions as a candidate, and now his policies as president. The film is currently available via Amazon, iTunes and other digital distribution channels courtesy of the licensed distributor, Cinema Libre Studio.
