'Amityville Horror' House for Sale: Would You Buy It?

Sheri Reed

The lovely Dutch Colonial home with the gambrel roof in Amityville, New York, whose stories turned into the basis for a book and the Amityville Horror movies, is for sale for $1.5 million.

Um, you couldn't pay ME $1.5 million to move into that house (heck, I'm scared right now just writing about it).

In 1974, Ronald DeFeo, Jr., 23 years old at the time, shot and killed six members of his family in this legendary house. In 1975, the Lutz family moved in and claimed to experience strange phenomena, including green slime from walls, realistic nightmares of the DeFeo murders, voices, door slamming, glowing red eyes, swarms of flies, bite marks and other physical marks with no explanation, and the felt presence of ghosts and demons.

The Lutz family's experiences have been questioned as truth over the years, and since they left the house, the home has had two separate owners who claim no strange occurrences in the last three decades.

Uh, what was that? Did you hear that? Uck, I'm so freaked out.

Money aside, would you buy the Amityville Horror house?
