Amityville Murders

One ghost story that I find to be most interesting is the one of the Amityville murders that took place in 1974. The police had discovered 6 members of the DeFeo family murdered in their own house. A year later the Lutzes family moved into the house and stated that the murders that happened in the house "wouldn't bother them". The family had a priest come and bless their home on the first day they moved in, and when the priest went into the second floor northeast bedroom he allegedly heard a male voice scream "Get out". He didn't tell the family about it, but advised them to not use that room. It did not take long for the family to become uncomfortable in their house. After the first night they admitted that they felt strange sensations. Things began to worsen after a few weeks, green slime ran down walls, hundreds of flied were in the sewing room in the winter time, and suffered from constant chills.

George (the husband) awoken one night to see that his wife had "transformed into a 90 year old hag". The next night she had began levitating off the bed and George had to grab her to pull her back down to the bed. They realized they needed help, and tried to get the priest back to help but he refused due to feeling the after effects of the blessing. The daughter had befriended an invisible red eyed pig named Jodie who could not be seen by anyone unless she wanted them too. It was reported that the malevolent forces in the house has caused major property damage such as the front door getting ripped of its hinges, windows being broken, damage to the garage door, and water damage from hurricane force winds that meteorologists had to record of. After 28 days of living in the house, the family decided that they could not take it anymore and moved out.

  1. I feel as if the husband was witnessing someone elses OBE? Or is this just considered the spirits which are haunting the house to be causing the events? I believe in hauntings, ghosts, bad spirits, good spirits, and all that. I don't think it was ever dicussed in the text if you can actually see someone else experience an OBE because it's usually you looking back upon yourself, or experiencing something so wonderful or extreme (such as my most recent post). I have to say I remember watching this movie when I was younger and how extremely creepy, but believable, it was. People do not just make up these sightings. I believe this is much more then just a pseudo scientific belief but almost a look into a world far more than our own.
