Haunted Residential Home - The 1974 Defeo Family Home

Lot challenge: Spooky and Cursed

Based loosely on the movie Amityville Horror. Since there are several versions of Amityville Horror house for SIMS4, I chose to make the house as it looked in 1974 at the time of the Defeo murders.

Requires Quarter Moon Windows by Mathscope @ https://sims4studio.com/post/51632

Cheats used: MoveOjects and ShowHiddenObjects.

Value: $251,132

Installation: After unzipping your download, place all the files in the Tray folder, found at C:/...Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Tray
They can't be placed in a subfolder. Go to Options | Other | Enable Custom Content and Mods and check that the "enable custom content and mods" and/or "script mods allowed" is ticked. Reboot game and find the new SIM in your Gallery.

Nice, just a suggestion - but another cool horror themed build that you could do is the cabin from Evil Dead (1981 - Ash vs. Evil Dead)

I remember seeing some documentaries on the DeFeo murders over the years. That house never ceased to fascinate me! A very nice job on recreating the 1974 version of the Amityville house. Maybe you can recreate the 2005 Amityville house. I read the house went under a lot of exterior changes so it's almost unrecognizable today, if it wasn't for the address - 112 Ocean Avenue.
