Are you a super horror fan? Are you loaded? Well, you may want to look into real estate in New Jersey…
The owners of The Amityville Horror house – an iconic piece of scary movie history – have put it back on the market with a dropped asking price of $955,000, insisting it is because they are getting divorced and not because it is haunted, explains the Daily Mail.
The 10-room, colonial-style building was used for exteriors in the 1979 film and was first put on the market last year for $1.45million, then dropped to $1.35m.
Built in the 1920s, the New Jersey home is now being listed again just in time for Halloween, and despite the drop in asking price, the owners insist it is not haunted.
For the movie, a superstructure was built around the outside to make it look like the home in Amityville, New York, whose owners claimed was possessed by evil spirits.
The ‘real’ Amityville house at 112 Ocean Avenue was made famous on November 13, 1974, after police discovered six members of the DeFeo family – father, mother and four of their five children – all shot and killed execution style.
In December 1975, George and Kathy Lutz and Kathy’s three children then moved into the large Dutch Colonial style house.
The Lutzes’ reports of strange and horrific experiences was the basis of the book and film.
But after 28 days, the Lutzes left claiming to have been terrorized by paranormal phenomena while living there.
