How's it going my gumdrops? It appears that some visitors and subscribers are really liking this festive background, now that Halloween is creeping around the corner. I got several oohs and ahs online yesterday. Thank you so much for liking the current scenery! After October, this scenery will return next September to usher in the fall, Halloween, and the 5th anniversary of It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.
Aside from the latest scenery, it is Song Saturday. Originally, I meant to share this last April while house hunting last spring, but was side tracked with other issues at the time.
Last April, I went house hunting with my family and my grandmother wanted us to attend an open house for a house, that she and my mother found. After parking in front of that house, I instantly got creepy vibes from it. It was as if my whole body was humming The Amityville Horror Theme Song.
The Amityville Horror Trailer (1979)
Speaking of the 1979 Paranormal Horror film, it was based on Jay Anson's 1977 novel of the same name. If you have never watched the original movie, I recommend doing so. It should make you think twice about house hunting.
Like I said above, the house my family and I took a tour of last April instantly gave me creepy vibes to the extent that my entire body hummed The Amityville Horror Theme Song. Rather than it being painted white, it was a Lavender Blue color.
The overall exterior looked like an abandoned home on a cold and dreary-looking day with someone's ginormous, khaki shorts embedded into the backyard's grass. Who the hell flees a house leaving SHORTS behind and in the backyard? Come on! Was the house THAT haunted?
Regardless, that house creeped me out so much, I nicknamed it "The Amityville Horror House." It was already bad enough, that the house we've been living in for the last 17 years is currently haunted. Anytime someone left SHORTS behind in the backyard OF ALL places, there was no telling HOW haunted that Lavender Blue house was that we visited.
You may be in stitches from laughing at my description of that house, but the creepy vibes I got from it were INTENSE. There's no telling what happened in it. Somebody's corpse could've been buried in the backyard and the burier probably FORGOT to bury the shorts with the corpse.
To add to my unease, a mental institution was located literally 1 BLOCK AWAY from that creepy house. Call me "crazy" but there were too many red flags with that house and its location. Hypothetically speaking, if we were to live in "The Amityville Horror House," I would be getting less sleep than I have been over the last decade or so.
When it comes to the actual Amityville Horror House, Jay Anson's novel was based on the paranormal experiences that The Lutz Family endured in December 1975.
On November 13, 1974, which was 1 year EARLIER, Ronald DeFoe Jr. shot and killed 6 of his family members in a large, Dutch Colonial House, in the Amityville Village. This 5-bedroom house is situated on the south shore of Long Island, NY; It is in a suburban neighborhood in Amityville. The exact address of the murders is 112 Ocean Avenue.
In November 1975, which was literally 1 month before The Lutz Family moved into the house, Ronald DeFoe Jr. was convicted of 2nd degree murder. Meanwhile, The Lutz Family moved into the same house DeFoe killed his family in for $80,000.
That price was considered to be a so-called "bargain." The house was also still furnished, since the time of the murders.
The Lutz Family moved into the 5-bedroom Dutch Colonial House for 80 grand on December 19, 1975, then fled after 28 days of being terrorized by the paranormal activity stemming from the DeFoe murders.
While author Jay Anson documented The Amityville Horror, George and Kathy Lutz heavily supervised him. If ANYTHING, this real life story should make people think TWICE about house hunting on a bargain.
Anyway, since this blog heavily focuses on The Amityville Horror, here is the theme song for it composed by Lalo Schifirin for today's Song Saturday.
