AMITYVILLE, N.Y. -- The house made famous in the 1979 film "The Amityville Horror" is up for sale in New York -- 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.

I saw that...the first movie creeped me out as a kid...

I think the guys real name is DeFEo, the guy who did the actual murders...was an LSD and Heroin addict.

Demons my butt.

it's actually a beautiful large waterfront home.  on Long Island I would imagine $1.15 mil is a good deal.

Thats a tough pitch for that Realtor, "For only 1 million dollars, you too can be terrorized by Satan and his minions."

I always wondered where Malcolm and his children lived.

Beautiful home. But I wouldn't pay over a mill for it.

Exactly.

Page owned a house that belonged to Crowley. He also owned several other mansions - as he was fascinated with the architectural aspects of them. He sold the Boleskine House in 1990.  What does that have to do with anything? Someone sensationalizes something - and then everyone reads "devil worship" into it. You know.... 2000 years ago, Christians were seen as cultists.

who said anything about "devil worship"?  Seems like you are the one reading into things. I don't believe AC was a Satanist despite what many Christian groups like to say.   But if what the Lutz family claims in Jay Anson's book are correct and the house is a portal to another dimension I'm sure an occultist such as Crowley  would be very interested in it.  I am not a practitioner but I do have an interest in such subject matters myself.
