Own a Piece of Horror
amityville_house.jpg
Looking for a spacious 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath house with a finished basement and river views? The above house can be yours for the low low price of $1,150,000. Also, and we hesitate to mention this, but there's a small caveat. Potentially, you may wind up killing your entire family and/or being haunted by ghosts. The house that inspired the Amityville Horror novel and films is for sale. (Check out the listing here) It was in this house that Ronald DeFeos killed six family members while they were sleeping in 1974. Afterward, future owners George and Kathleen Lutz claimed the house was haunted, a tale which became the inspiration for the novel.

I'm sorry ... I misread the headline. I thought you were auctioning off Paris Hilton.

Its a nice looking place. I'd totally buy it. You'd be extra safe there too. What are the odds two familys are going to get killed in the same house? (Hat tip to John Irving).
