This house was made famous in the 1977 book by Jay Anson and its related hit movie. The event that started it all off was Ronald DeFeo’s 1974 mass murder of the family at 108 Ocean Avenue (which was then 112 Ocean Avenue). The family who lived there next fled from the house after 28 days, citing paranormal activity. Their experiences are said to be chronicled in Anson’s book and in the movie.
