"The Amityville Horror" seems too horrific to be true, but its premise is based on the real paranormal experiences of George and Kathy Lutz. The Lutz family moved to the suburban neighborhood of Amityville, New York in 1975, but did not realize that their house was haunted. The home they picked, located at 112 Ocean Avenue, was formerly occupied by Ronald DeFeo, Sr., his wife Louise and their five children–a family that was brutally murdered in the house by their oldest son, Ronald "Butch" DeFeo, Jr. After just 28 days, the Lutzs fled the home claiming that paranormal spirits of the murdered family haunted the walls. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: American International Pictures)
