You Decide
28 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a friend who used to live next to the real Amityville house and she told me they would always keep their blinds shut and you always heard weird noises coming from the house. She said she never seen anyone go in or go out of the house and she's never seen a ghost there either, but she felt really strong negative vibes which compelled her to move. My opinion is I think this house is for real; if you think about it, we're not the only ones on earth and I believe in the supernatural anyways, but that's only my opinion. I also heard on AM 1500 (Art Bell) that he had a guest one time who was the husband of one of the wives who used to live there. The creepiest thing he said, and it's so unbelievable my mind can't comprehend it is that after they moved out of that house, his wife's face changed into an old woman's gradually within 5 minutes and it stayed that way for about a week. He also talked about some of the unusual occurrences within this house such as sometimes at night, their beds would shake and he would often see his wife levitating over her bed while she was sleeping and various objects would move of course. If you're interested in listening to AM 1500 it's on from 12 Am to 5 Am. The new guy, George Noorey, discusses all sorts of things ranging from aliens to Mel's Hole and time travel.
