It was in the morning of November 13, 1974, that Butch DeFeo slayed his entire family, shooting his parents, and four siblings at 112 Ocean Avenue. The family home would later achieve notoriety as the haunted ‘Amityville Horror.’

I can’t believe it’s already that time of year. Tickets are on sale already for the scariest haunted house in the mid-west. If you have not experienced this, I highly recommend it. It is an adults only house of horrors that requires you to sign a waiver before entering. There is also a safe word provided at the beginning of the tour in the event that you cannot take it and want to leave.
At every turn, visitors are faced with a grotesque perversion of the mundane, turning everyday actions into fresh terrors. With inspiration drawn from personal experiences and commonplace moments, The Haunted Basement is real life twisted on itself, pushing the boundaries of Art and Theatre. Each visitor is the protagonist in their own unique horror story, choosing between options and discovering how long they can last before their courage fails them.
