Things that go bump in the night

Sometimes it's just the dog. From Inside Bay Area:

AMITYVILLE, SHAMITYVILLE. My childhood home really WAS haunted. Hollywood knows that the claim "based on a true story" helps sell scary movies. In the case of "The Amityville Horror," the "truth" of the story has been widely discredited, but the Hollywood Hype Machine lumbers on. As you recall from the book or the first movie, a family bought a house in which a young man had killed his parents and siblings with a rifle, one by one, as they lay sleeping. He supposedly heard voices directing him to do so. The house was put on the market and the new owners moved in with their three children. I hope they didn't pay top dollar. The family began to notice little things like doors and windows that opened and closed by themselves, sickly odors, and green slime on the walls. Oh, yes, and an invisible brass band that marched through the house. I can relate. We lived in a haunted house when I was 9 years old. There were odd noises, horrible smells and unexplained happenings galore.
