The Amityville Horror House Is Up For Sale
A piece of horror history is now currently for sale.
The Amityville Horror house on Long Island is listed for $850,000. It’s the site of a shocking mass murder in 1974, when a man murdered his parents and four siblings. His attorney said voices in the dwelling made him do it, but that’s where reality ends and “The Amityville Hoax” begins, according to locals and listing agent Gerald O’Neill of Coldwell Banker Harbor Light.
They give little reliance to the tales told in a best-selling book and two movies, all called ‘The Amityville Horror,’ based on the supposed haunting of a family who resided there briefly after the murders.
“There’ve been four owners since the murders, and none of them ran out of the house screaming, and there were no strange experiences,” O’Neill said. His own brother lived there for a decade with his family.
Little known fact, the address is modified from when the murders occurred, because the post office changed it at the request of one of the owners.
