The house is very similar to the infamous Amityville House, one of the most haunted houses in the world. On the night of 1974, at 3 AM, 23 year old Ronald DeFeo Jr. killed his entire family. Then around 6:30 PM on Wednesday, November 13, 1974, DeFeo entered Henry's Bar in Amityville, Long Island, New York, and declared: "You got to help me! I think my mother and father are shot!" DeFeo and a small group of people went to 112 Ocean Avenue, which was located near the bar, and found that DeFeo's parents were indeed dead. One of the group, DeFeo's friend Joe Yeswit, made an emergency call to the Suffolk County Police, who searched the house and found that six members of the same family were dead in their beds. He was later arrested, and the house was put up for sale.
The Lutz family eventually bought the house, and claimed the ghosts of the DeFeo family haunted them. The family later moved out of the house, and the house was put up for sale again.
The story of the Lutzes was turned into a book called The Amityville Horror. The book was a success, and several movies were made based on it.
Some people have claimed they heard voices saying "kill them" near the house, which is what Ronald DeFeo said he heard when he was killing his family. Players also report that the bodies of the six family members can be found inside, but this has never been proven.
