In December 1975, the Lutz family moved into their new home on suburban Long Island. George and Kathleen Lutz knew that, one year earlier, Ronald DeFeo had murdered his parents, brothers, and sisters in the house, but the property—complete with boathouse and swimming pool—and the price were too good to pass up.

Twenty-eight days later, the entire Lutz family fled in terror.

This is the spellbinding, bestselling true story that gripped the nation, the story of a house possessed by evil spirits, haunted by psychic phenomena almost too terrible to describe.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fascinating and frightening book.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “This book will scare the hell out of you.”

    Kansas City Times

  • “A chilling account of…four weeks of terror.”


  • “Unearthly doings in tree-lined Amityville, Long Island? Yes, and it’s not Casper the Friendly Ghost who assails the Lutz family. Could it be the disembodied forms of the DeFeos, the previous tenants of 112 Ocean Avenue, massacred in their beds?”

Listener Opinions

    " Super scary. The blood red walls still haunt me. I will never have red walls in my house. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Margo | 2/16/2014

    " Although not the most sophisticated book of all time, I thoroughly enjoyed this when I read it. It was spooky and gripping, and a great book to read at the beach (or, if you want to be scared, at night by flashlight). I would recommend it to anyone who wants something easy and thrilling to read (though definitely not to someone who hates being scared or who only likes to read things that are realistic). "

    " I got this book at a school book fair back in the 1970s. Scared me to death. The first movie (based on this book) was good and scary, but Hollywood ruined everything by throwing in more movies. "

    " I really liked this book! Sooooo creepy! I have always been fasinated with the Amityville story and seen all of the movies so when I saw the book I was instantly interested! I liked how it was written and all the facts and studies that it ended with. "
