Amityville House, Amityville, NY
In November 1974, six members of the DeFeo family were shot and killed, only one-son Butch, suspected of the murders-survived. Thirteen months later, the Lutz family moved into the sprawling Long Island home. They asked a priest to bless the home, who supposedly warned them to keep away from one of the bedrooms. From that first day, the family claims they felt and witnessed the supernatural, from inexplicable green slime running down the walls, an upside-down crucifix and an episode of the wife levitating off the bed. After 28 days in the DeFeo home, the Lutz family fled. A book and movie deal followed, as well as doubts regarding the validity of the story.
