Marvin Scott spent a night in the “Amityville Horror” house in 1976, participating in seances with claivoyants and demonologists.

He says that “despite all the drama and all the hype, I experienced nothing unusual and have believed throughout the years that the story was nothing more than a good ghost story that has become a cottage industry to believers of the occult.”
