Take a moment to vote...

My mother recently gave me her copy of The Amityville Horror.
It's the original paperback copy from 1977 in excellent condition and from what I've heard, it's a collector's item.
I know the story about what happened to the DeFeo family in 1974 at 112 Ocean Ave.
Read here for the full story

Check out this site:
http://www.amityvillemurders.com/

Many of you might remember how George & Kathy Lutz bought the home for about $80,000 the following year.
They knew in advance what had happened in that house but decided to buy the home anyway because it perfectly fit their needs and the price was unheard of for a house that size.

This isn't the only case of a house that's been the site of multiple murders.
I've heard that realtors can have a hell of a time selling such houses.

Don't know if I could ever move into a house knowing that a bloodbath happened there.
I have a wild imagination and I can imagine that if I did move into such a house, it'd definitely get the better of me.
I wouldn't be able to stop thinking about what happened.

How about you?
Would you move into a house where multiple murders took place?

  HELL NO!!!! I don't want no creepy ass ghosts buzzing around,scaring the sh!t outta my family! And even if it wasn't haunted...it's just bad juju! I believe in spooks...or at least in bad karma...and a death house can be no good.Subconciensly,your mind could even create the bad  karma...no one would feel relaxed.

I'd move in.  I find supernatural stuff extremely interesting when it comes to movies, but just plain non-existent when it comes to reality.

I'd move in too. I would not be surprised to find that ghosts exist, I believe there's some evidence for this, but no evidence of them actually harming people, other than scaring them, so I wouldn't mind sharing a home with them. Some ghosts might be kind of fun.

I said yes, I'd move in. I've never seen a ghost, don't really believe in them. I guess the main deciding factor would be whether they cleaned it all up well. I don't think I really want to find brain chunks in the fireplace or have my cat bring me somebody's finger from the back of a closet  TongueOut.

Depends upon the price of the house.  Bonus points if it's a cool house, with lots of nooks & crannies and hidden passages.

My grandmother was dying of cancer when she moved in with us - Mom's an RN.  She died in our house, at night, while we were all there.  It never affected me.  Granted, that wasn't a murder, but it was a death.

Murder ,Mass murder,in particular,would give a house bad vibes.You don't have to believe in the supernatural to understand that subconsiously,members of your family ( children the most) would not feel comfterble in a murder house. Nerves would be frayed,just because of the fact that deep down, you would know that evil was there...kinda like living in a graveyard. I would not want to sacrifice the mental well being, or the peace of the household, for all the money in the world. What good is material well being, if you can't find inner peace? If the kids arn't happy...you won't be. And lifes to short to be unhappy. I'd rather live in an old farmhouse that is peaceful, than a mansion that is wired. Would you move into an old crackhouse? The residue of drugs is still their. Just as the residue of murder is in a death house. There are more things in the universe than is dreamt of in your phiosphy...someone once said....

I'd have no problem living in a house where horrible things happened in the past, whether it be murders, torture, Tupperware parties or all three. Things in the past just don't affect me that way, especially things I had no control over or had no part in. Plus, I tend to view death different from most people. Also, any ghosts or spirits who might want to haunt the place could never be more frightening than me when I run out of Coca-Cola. Wink

I don't think it would bother me.  Lookingup But then, I would want to know if the murderer killed the right person, or was the murderer caught? I wouldn't want to live there if he got away and also killed the wrong person. He might come back for a second try. This is something to cause great thought.......uuuummmmmm.  Buggedout  Wink

I would stay away from it if I had found out about it before purchasing it, but if I had purchased it first and then found out about it. Well...........I guess I'd live with it for a while. It would be hard to sell anyway.

Probably not, but then again if it was a mansion for a very cheap price, I think it'd be worth it.  Just send in some priests from various denominations to "Cleanse" the place of bad ju-ju.

But it would have to be a helluva house...

I voted maybe, for myself, I'd have no problem living in such a place once any damage was repaired. Don't believe in ghosts or the supernatural. If I had a family, especially kids, I would be less eager, for the reasons RCM gave. Plus any social stigma they might face from other kids.

Would be less inclined to buy a murder house if it had a more notorious rep, but because of the resale value more than anything. A few years ago a rich eccentric (okay mildly insane or senile) older woman killed her husband in one of the nicer homes in our downtown historic district. She tucked the body away for weeks, and only tried to dispose of the body when she invited her hairdressers over to do her hair and then go out to eat as a ruse, like I said rich woman. The duo noticed an odd smell, but tried to be polite. She then tired to get  them to help her dispose of his body. They notified th cops and she was arrested. I don't think the case ever went to trial due to her age and mental state, she was probably committed. I wouldn't buy that house if the chance ever presented itself, just because I think it would be hard to resale for some time since people in the area and the neighborhood (especially among the social circles that own most of the homes in that area) know its history.

My family did almost buy a home that had a cemetery facing its backyard when I was young. Most of the graves were old, but they still buried a few people there every year. I think that and the cost was a little more than my parents were comfortable with made them reconsider. I wish they had, it was a nice house, in a nicer neighborhood than ours (but next to where we would up). Plus I knew and liked lots of kids in that neighborhood, more than in mine and closer to the ones I did. Also if we had lived there, the jerk kid whose family eventually did live there would have lived somewhere else, maybe even gone to another school. Everyone would have been glad of that.

I used to work at a lumber company that was right across the road from the Forrest Lawn Cemetary in Glendale, used go there to eat lunch when I needed some peace and quiet, it was always a nice place, very restful and serene. I could sit on a bench under a tree, eat my lunch and read a book, the departed never seemed to mind.

I knew a girl who was one of those pseudo-Goth types in high school (we were too country for real Goths, shame really Goth girls can be really hot). She used to proudly tell people about how she like to have sex in cemeteries. All that "history" and tombstones  surrounding her put her in the mood IIRC. Don't know if she ever saw ROTLD, probably should have.

Last I heard she was a lawyer.
