Newlyweds George and Kathy Lutz find an absolute bargain of a dream house in Amityville, New York; as they reside in the home, over time they come to believe it inhabited by evil.

Received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score. Followed by no fewer than ten sequels or remakes, most of them beneath attention.
