The Amityville House In 1974, six members of the DeFeo family were found slain in this home; eldest son Ronald DeFeo Jr. was later convicted of murdering his parents and siblings. A year later, the Lutz family moved in but quickly moved out after reports of unexplained paranormal activity — strange odors, unexplained cold drafts and an apparition that took the form of a demonic pig-like creature.
This is the only truly haunted place on this list where filming occurred. The movie was based on a true story, in which the entire family was murdered by the eldest son, Ronald Defeo, Jr., who shot his parents and four siblings while they were sleeping one night in November 1974.
