The new owners of the notorious "Amityville Horror" house have a Halloween message for curious onlookers – keep walking!

David and Caroline D'Antonio, who purchased the $950,000 Dutch Colonial home in the Long Island, N.Y. community of Amityville last week, already are dreading the upcoming holiday. (Also see AOL Real Estate's guide, "Buyers Beware: Was That House a Crime Scene?")

"We almost didn't close until after Halloween," Caroline D'antonio told Newsday. "It's going to be very hard to live here for a while."
