About This Video

This video was uploaded to the YouTube channel The Paranormal Detectives in December 2020.

The Amityville house based in Long Island New York was the scene at which Robert DeFeo Jr murdered six members of his family. This video looks at the real story of what happened at the Amityville horror house - and the tales of the hauntings too.

Thirty miles outside of New York City, nestled in the Long Island town of Amityville, stands the house forever linked to the Amityville Horror phenomenon. On November 13, 1974, the estate was the scene of mass murder. Using a .35 Marlin rifle, 23-year-old Ronald J. DeFeo Jr. murdered his entire family while they were asleep, which included his parents and four siblings.

Thirteen months later, the Lutz family purchased the home at a drastically reduced price of $80,000 (due to the murders) but only lasted 28 days before leaving it. Their spine-tingling tales of paranormal activity are what propelled the legend of the Amityville Horror and spawned a torrent of books, documentaries and films.
