In November of 1974, 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York was the scene of the gruesome mass killing of the DeFeo family by their older son, Butch Defeo.
14 months later, the next residents of this house fled their property due to a series of terrifying paranormal experiences. Their story inspired The Amityville Horror movie franchise. This is Based on a True Crime.
