Most horror or ghost films start out in a house that seems lovely, sweet, and sometimes a touch mysterious. It always seems that the family moving in is oblivious to their surroundings, even if there’s a ouija board sitting on the dining room table or a hidden room in the basement.

But what if there was a house that screamed “haunted” that was listed as a property to buy?

There’s a real estate listing in Melory Crescent located in South Australia. It’s not for the faint of heart. The house is huge and set on an enormous property. It has five bedrooms and two baths and the owners are quite eclectic.

The listing starts out normal…

“Two titles, unrenovated, Tiny Original Chapel, dual cellars and roof top viewing platform, backs onto the council reserve, so you feel like you are deep in the country.”

Awesome. Sounds pretty nice and quiet. Perhaps for a retired couple or a writer looking to getaway. But as you keep reading things turn little Psycho./i>

“Challenge your senses. If you are a scaredy cat, don’t come…This has been in the same family since 1977. The family of six best describe the fun and good times as Mrs Bates in the Hitchcock movie. The house on the hill. “

Okay, say what?

“Watch the cob webs, and don’t wear a suit. Brave people only, leave the kids at home or keep them supervised.”

For those who are curious, take a look at the pictures and try not to think of Buffalo Bill from The Silence of the Lambs.

So the owner likes Alice Copper. That’s not so bad.

Twitter went nuts and we agree with their reactions!

Why why why why why


Step into my nightmare!

At least one person loves it!

Whoops. Just shit my paints.


You can ask for a tour if you wish. But if you insist on buying, may we first suggest an exorcism?
