That place is located at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York.

The 1979 movie grossed over $80 million dollars making it one of the most profitable independent films of all time. The 2005 movie grossed around $108 million dollars.
The story behind the real-life haunting of the home started in 1974. Experts believe that the house became haunted after Ronald DeFeo, Jr., murdered his parents and four siblings. He claimed that he heard voices telling him to kill his family
In 1975, a new family moved into the home. They claimed to experienced paranormal activities and moved out after just 27 days.
