PETA Tries to Stop Amityville-Type Horrors

Media outlets everywhere are reporting that a home on New York’s Long Island is for sale. Why all the buzz? This house is well known as the “Amityville Horror house,” the infamous site of alleged paranormal activity brought on by gruesome murders at the home as depicted in the horror classic The Amityville Horror.

Whether or not you believe in ghosts, there’s no denying the horrors that countless animals suffer in factory farms before they are cruelly killed in slaughterhouses. So enter PETA: We’ve written to the current owner to propose that we be allowed to rent the residence so that we can set up shop—er, haunted house.

PETA’s “Amityville Slaughterhouse of Horrors” would guarantee chills (and likely some sleepless nights) for visitors who will experience what life and death are like for victims of factory farms and slaughterhouses. Of course, it wouldn’t be all gore and horror: Our walk-through exhibit would also include an on-site café where visitors can learn about simple, tasty alternatives to butchered animal bits.

Will we be bringing the haunting real-life tales of tormented animals to Amityville? We’ll let you know—in the meantime, make sure your own kitchen doesn’t look like a murder scene by going vegan.

    Oh I’ve got some more bad news for the meat industry………….. You still did’t get all the blood out.

  • Saucy says:

    Have you noticed the growing obsession with blood and guts? Murder and violence. Otherwise intelligent individuals sitting night after night week after week in front of a tv taking in this repetitive horror show. Multiplied lawlessness. “It’s just a tv show. It’s just a steak dinner. It doesn’t mean anything. My mind my body my spirit aren’t in any way affected” I guess we are just a blob of nothingness floating through the universe going nowhere???????????
