In 1974, Ronald "Butch" DeFeo Jr. murdered his entire family as they slept in their home in Amityville, New York. A short year later, the Lutz family moves into the home and begins to experience unusual occurrences. The family claimed to experience cold spots, unexpected noises, and pig faces in windows. The Lutz family lasted 28 days in their house of horrors before they walked away.

There were aspects of the story that were frightening, such as the touches with no one there and the way the priest suffered after blessing the home but there were far too many strange parts to allow anyone to think this was based on a true story. I have never heard of another haunting that included a marching band and a pig-faced entity named Jodie who spoke to a child but didn't scare her. If this has been marketed as fiction, it may have been considered a better read.
