The Amityville Horror, although now considered a hoax, is one of the most famous haunted house of all time. The small house in Amityville, New York was made famous in the mid-70s when George and Kathy Lutz told the media of bizarre happenings which were alleged to have taken place at the house during the month they lived there.
These happenings included such things as flying pigs with glowing red eyes, walls that oozed blood, an infestation of flies in the attic, and a pit to hell in the basement.
Supposedly, whatever had tormented the Lutzes was also the thing that had driven Ronald DeFeo to shoot and kill his entire family in that house in 1974. On November 13, 1974 around 3:00 a.m., the son, Ronald DeFeo shot his mother, father, two brothers, and two sisters with a high-power rifle.
Ed and Lorraine Warren are a husband and wife team who investigate paranormal activity. Their most famous case is probably the Amityville horror.
