"The tell-tale jack-o-lantern windows are gone and even the house number has changed. And now for the first time in 13 years (13 - spooky!) the "Amityville Horror" house is up for sale.
"THE animal rights group PETA has set its sights on leasing the notorious Amityville murder house on Long Island, which it plans to turn into an exhibit to scare people off meat and dairy products.
In a statement released on Friday, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said it wanted to convert the house into a temporary "slaughterhouse of horrors", the New York Daily News reported.
A letter has been sent by the group to the current owner of the Long Island, New York home making the request and suggesting it may even attract more potential buyers to the Dutch Colonial which is on the market for US $1.5 million ($1.77 million).
Rather than the usual ghosts and malevolent spirits associated with the house, the group said it wanted to depict "the horrors" experienced by animals who are raised and killed for meat, milk, and eggs, and must endure on factory farms and in slaughterhouses, such as intensive confinement, filthy conditions, mutilations and neglect."
