I believe that there was strong paranormal activity in the house, and the story is mostly true. 5 18.52%
There is a kernel of truth to it, but it obviously got dramatically exaggerated. 3 11.11%
I don't know, but I still think it could have been true, or partially true. 3 11.11%
The Defeo murders were paranormal, but the Lutzs were con-artists. 1 3.70%
Nothing paranormal ever happened in the Amityville house. 15 55.56%
