(Newser) – The Long Island house made famous by the Amityville Horror movie has hit the market for $1.15 million, horrors not included. A family of 6 was murdered in the home in 1975, and the movie was loosely based on the haunting the next family to move in claimed to have experienced. Later owners reported no problems with the oozing slime, demonic pig, and other assorted horrors depicted in the movie, AP notes. Gawkers, however, were a problem, especially on Halloween.

This house located at 112 Ocean Avenue in the town of Amityville, Long Island, is one of America's most famous 'haunted' houses.   (Getty Images)
