Picked up The Amityville Horror and Barnes & Noble yesterday. Supposedly the events in the book are true and happened in the house in Amityville, New York, though some think that they didn't happen. Guess I'll have to read it and judge for myself!
From the back cover:
"The shocking true story of an American dream that turned into a nightmare beyond imagining...
"In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into their new home on suburban Long Island. George and Kathleen Lutz knew that, one year earlier, Ronald DeFeo had murdered his parents, brothers, and sisters in the house, but the property - complete with boathouse and swimming pool - and the price had been too good to pass up.
"Twenty-eight days later, the entire Lutz family fled in terror.
"This is the spellbinding, bestselling true story that gripped the nation - the story of a house possessed by evil spirits, haunted by psychic phenomena almost too terrible to describe."
