Amityville Horror House Up For Sale

The creepy house which inspired 1979 movie THE AMITYVILLE HORROR is up for sale.
The five-bedroom property, situated in Long Island, New York, was the scene of a grisly multiple murder in 1974 which saw six members of the DeFeo family killed as they slept. Eldest son Ronald DeFeo, Jr. was later convicted of the killings.
The film, starring James Brolin and Margot Kidder, was based on the story of a family who moved into the house after the murders, and went on to allegedly witness paranormal activities.
And now horror fans have the chance to own the infamous house - it was put up for sale on Monday (04May10) for $1.15 million (£766,667).

Who would want to own this house? I assume it is still haunted? Being a Christian and child of Jesus, I doubt the Holy Spirit would even let me enter it. Satan is real.

Seriously, I find it funny to a point the comment of being a child of Christ and he would not let you go into that home..... The people who did these things were bad, not the house. The house you live in right now(unless of course it is a brand new home to you) has been sinned in, in one way or another.. even if you live in a brand new house. The homes of people you visit, even the church you go to, there are sinners there as well, so do you just stay indoors? I am sure you sin. Sin, is sin.Now for the creep factor... sure, this house would be creepy, for the evil spirits?.. doubt it, but for the fact such horrible things happened in them, that would be something that would be to hard to try to escape the idea of.Could there be evil residing, who knows, but if you believe strongly in Christ or whomever you believe in... do you not believe you are protected at all times???????Just some curious thoughts.....

Ummm, it never was haunted nor did the events from the movie really happen. Though the house does look creepy. :)

Really? The HOUSE inspired the movie? Not the 1975 BOOK that was allegedly based on a true story? It's amazing. Professional writers can't even post legitimate, properly-worded content on a website these days. Are you an actual journalist? With a degree?

Does anyone know the Lutz family could not afford the house and were foreclosed on and made up the story of the haunting and sold it to hollywood. There is no Paranormal activity in the house. I know this cause I have a friend who grew up in the neighborhood and went to school with the murderer (Ronald Defaeo Jr)
