If you want some creepy history and cinematic cult fame to go with your five bedrooms and 3-1/2 baths, look no further than this classic Dutch Colonial on the market in quaint Amityville, N.Y.

Why the fuss? This listing on Long Island's south shore, for $1.15 million, is the "Amityville Horror" house, where six members of the DeFeo family were killed in their sleep in 1974. The eldest son, Ronald DeFeo Jr., was convicted of the murders. But don't expect that notoriety to increase the house's value.
