Either way, it was a good book and the movie always freaks me out a little. Much better than most of the things that come out now-a-days.

I don't think that's accurate- the article is from May of last year. Currently 112 Ocean Drive in Amityville is not showing up on any real estate listings, but there are other pretty (and expensive) houses in the area up for sale.

Apparently it isn't even on Ocean Drive anymore either. Digging around a bit, looks like it was moved in the 80's to a Brooks Road, and a new house was constructed at Ocean Drive.

There is a second Amityville house too- the one used for filming. Apparently they weren't allowed to film at the real house, and located one in Toms River NJ that they decked out to look like the real house, then took off the facing after the filming was done.

I gotta say, the thought of moving a house seems real strange to me.
We dont generally do that here in UK.
Although i remember a lighthouse was moved during past few years. It was in the papers with explanation how it was done. But like i said, not a common occurance over here.

I watched a program which showed a house being moved in the USA.
It was fascinating to me. But it looks to be a pretty complicated job.

I wish we could move a house over here.
The house we had in Wigan was perfect for us. I would love to have been able to move it here in Scarborough.

I don't think I'd ever live in the Amityville house.  It'd just give me the creeps.  The place must be full of spiders.

Yeah, or demons. Wouldn't touch that place with a 100ft. pole.  :blink:

Even if it's not haunted, couldn't live in a place, or a room where multiple murders were committed, that's just creepy as hell.

Wood, nails and plaster, that's it. The Lutz's have admitted that they embellished everyday events until they had the desired "paranormal" effect. There were murders committed in the house, but it's still just a house.
You gotta feel for the neighbors. Putting up with this crap for all these years.
All over nothing.

I would love to buy it, but not for that price.  Ghost don't bother me.

You do believe, or you want to believe? There's a fine distinction there.  :sleepy:

Whether it was haunted or not, I would never step feet in that house! Nor buy it. No thank you.
I would,but I would have it torn down or open it up for public viewing for $10 a person or invite a paranormal group to spend the night.but as far as living in it  NO WAY JOSE.
