AMITYVILLE, N.Y. -- The house made famous in the 1979 film "The Amityville Horror" is up for sale in New York - ghosts not included.
The five-bedroom Dutch Colonial, situated in Long Island, was the scene of a grisly multiple murder in 1974 in which six members of the DeFeo family were slaughtered in their beds.
He later claimed voices told him to kill.
The Oscar-nominated film is based on the experiences of the Lutz family who briefly lived in the house in 1975.
The story spawned a book and a series of movies that chronicled various supernatural horrors, including visions of walls oozing slime, moving furniture and a visit from a demonic pig named Jodie.
The original film stars James Brolin and Margot Kidder.
Neighbors say gawkers still occasionally come by, mostly on Halloween.
And now horror fans have the chance to own the infamous house - for a mere $1.15 million.
