We’ve all felt it at one time or another; that dark creeping dread that crawls up your spine slowly as you walk by that shadowy staircase that leads to the basement. The hair that stands up on the back of your neck when you hear a bump in the house, and you’re the only one home. The scratching at your window on a blustery night that bleeds the courage from your veins. Is that the wind or something more sinister?
It’s the season of ghosts, goblins and witches and a time when we celebrate the things that ‘go bump in the night.’ Nothing brings about more terror than the homes of horror that we read about in books and see on the silver screen. From the Amityville Horror to the House on Haunted Hill, these maniacal mansions have struck fear in our hearts for years. Ask yourself, “What if these Hollywood horrors are more than just the imagination of a writer trying to think up the next big scare for his audience?” What if that shadow you see out of the corner of your eye in your bedroom really is something demonic waiting there for you to fall asleep? Is your brand new dream home really the place of nightmares?
This year we have some truly scary residences that would make the bravest individual run screaming into the woods in their underwear before the night is through. All of these homes have stories that follow them that are on par with the scariest of Hollywood’s horror homes. Let’s be realistic here. None of these spooktacular tales are real so don’t be scared by these Top Ten scariest homes for sale. We’re sure you’ll be perfectly safe if you purchase any one of them to live in…well, we’re fairly sure.
