Even if you're not a big fan of horror movies and supposed stories of true hauntings, you've probably at least heard about the infamous Amityville horror house.

That house, which is located at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York, is now for sale. The asking price is $850,000.

The story of this horror house begins in 1974. One fateful day that year, 23-year-old Ronald DeFeo went on a killing spree. By the end, both of DeFeo's parents and all four of his siblings were dead.

Initially, DeFeo claimed that the murders were the work of a hitman, but he soon confessed and was sentenced to life in prison. He's still behind bars today.

Not long after, the new owners of the home claimed to be haunted by several angry spirits. Their tales of paranormal activity became the basis for Jay Anson's popular book "The Amityville Horror,"and for all subsequent films.

Despite widespread tales of ghosts and demons, there has never actually been a documented haunting on the property. Rather than the Amityville horror, locals refer to the rumor as the Amityville hoax.

Regardless of whether the house is haunted or not, the new owners could make a killing if they opened up an Amityville horror-themed bed and breakfast. (Okay, maybe "make a killing" isn't the best phrase.)
