Anyone looking to live in a filming location won't be satisfied here, but the original Long Island home that inspired the book The Amityville Horror: A True Story and the subsequent film series, and remake, has been put on the market for $1.15 million. Don't worry, though, as there supposedly hasn't been any paranormal activity since 1977 -- if there was any to begin with. It is true that Ronald DeFeo, Jr. murdered his family there, however. So if you don't mind that six people were shot in your house 35 years ago, this is the perfect home for you! If you want a lot of attention from cinephilic tourists, you can also change the address back to 112 Ocean Ave (previous owners changed the number to 108 to avoid visitors).

Those of you who've seen the first film know the story. A year after the DeFeo killings, the Lutzs moved in and lasted only 28 days before haunting experiences such as bleeding walls and demonic peeping pigs forced them to flee. Later films were less factual, as there was never a magazine reporter inhabiting the house, and obviously it never blew up, not even in 3D. If you're interested in the pumpkin-looking house featured in the movies, you'll have to go live in Toms River, New Jersey. This one is pretty cool, though, with its renovated boat house, deck and both central air and a central stereo system. And maybe if anyone else decides to reboot the franchise again, you can fight the locals and host the shoot in your home.
