GET OUT!!!!

A friend of mine and I used to do exactly what the last sentence of this article says, but not Halloween, just on random days. I donít know what the hell we were expecting to see or hear. Itís actually quite a nice looking house.





'Amityville Horror' Home For Sale for $1.15 Million


AMITYVILLE, N.Y. (AP/ 1010 WINS) -- The house made famous in the 1979 film "The Amityville Horror'' is up for sale on Long Island -- ghosts not included.

The five-bedroom Dutch Colonial went on the market Monday for $1.15 million.

The Oscar-nominated film is based on the story of the Lutz family's brief stay in the house in 1975 after six members of the DeFeo family were shot and killed as they slept in the home. Eldest son Ronald DeFeo Jr. was convicted of the murders.

The crime spawned a book and a series of movies that chronicled various supernatural horrors, including visions of walls oozing slime, moving furniture and a visit from a demonic pig named Jodie. The original film stars James Brolin and Margot Kidder.

Neighbors say gawkers still occasionally come by, mostly on Halloween.

Yes, I can say I am guilty of doing the "Ride By"... the house looks very beautiful today... It was actually a very nice house back in the 70's too...

My husband and a few friends are from the Amityville area... South of Montauk is very nice... lots of waterfront homes....
I lived a couple towns over to where this tragedy happened... Such a shame....

The scene where the red eyes stared into the window in the dark of night spooked me so bad, that to this day, I prefer to draw the blinds closed at night.

I never saw the movie so I'd buy it in a heartbeat if it was cheap enough. Looks like a pretty nice house.

The wife would never ever go for it, though.

Heh...I saw this was back on the market.

I watched part of it a few months ago when my friend's daughter was surfing through the channels and I saw it go by. I told her to go back and we watched for a bit. She kept asking me "Aunt Jeanne - is it REALLY true?"

The first movie to ever scare the bejeesus out of me was similar in nature. Burnt Offerings.

This guy still creeps me out big time...

LOL
drove by it when I was a kid

there was another house in the neighborhood that we all thought was owned by devil worshippers. There was a hearse in the driveway and the drapes looked like they came from a funeral home. we rarely saw the owners but when we did, the women looked kinda like Mrs Munster - very pale with long black hair, and dressed like her too.
always a stop on Halloween.

The house in the movie AMITYVILLE HORROR (1979) was fictional. The movie makers used a completely different house somewhere in New Jersey. That is why I also didn't seem to recognize any of the roads and towns shown in the movie (I am from Long Island and also familiar with the area).

The movie itself was pretty good though not great. The most frightening thing in the movie was the soundtrack music. The singing sends chills up and down my spine.

The scenes where the house steals the Lutz's wedding money is actually quite funny. The demons and ghosts took it. There is a little-known law in Catholic ritual where
demons and ghosts must get paid an Excorcism fee. Remember, demons and ghosts must earn a living too!!

Agreed, the book is possibly the scariest thing I've ever read...

Great house! But at $1.15 million, the mortgage would haunt me more than any silly-ass spirits.
Hey! I ain't afraid of no ghost!

I live on Long Island and did the drive by thing many years ago. It is not as creepy looking as the house in the movie but there is still no way I could live there.

That house is owned by a business friend of mine that is in the music entertainment industry. I had dinner there with he and his wife in 2004. Once you get over the historical shock value, it is a beautiful home. If nothing else, it has given me a story to tell people.

Would it be allowed for someone to purchase it and exploit it as a tourist attraction / museum? I guess neighbours would be against it.
