The Amityville Horror House is for Sale

The Amityville Horror House is for Sale

If you have $850,000 and aren’t afraid of the dark, consider this listing in Amityville, New York, the scene of the infamous murders of six family members in 1974 that inspired the book The Amityville Horror and several movies over the following decades. I’ll admit I have mixed feelings about posting this one; alleged hauntings aside, I’ve always loved the style of this home and think it’s one of the most beautiful of any to appear on the big screen. Mention of the home’s past is suspiciously absent from the description in the real estate listing, which leads me to believe the owners (and their neighbors) would rather forget it ever happened. Still, it’s a beauty—I just wish we could see the inside!
