‘Scary’ house for sale with ‘terrifying’ bathroom leaves people speechless

A seemingly innocent property for sale has gone viral after people spotted a person hiding in the background of some of the photos – dressed as a notorious murderer

The innocent looking house has gone viral

When selling your home, there’s a lot of advice on what to do.

It is essential to ensure that urgent repairs are carried out, to tidy up the house quickly and to hide all the personal objects which you do not want strangers to see.

Another tip that might be worth mentioning – don’t include a Michael Myers lookalike in your photos.

But then again – maybe you should, as a property listing has gone viral after a couple looking to sell their home included the ‘killer’ in their photos.

The Carlinville, Illinois home, which is listed at £135,000 ($169,000), went viral after owners Danielle, 40, and Owen Sullivan, 53, paid tribute to one of most popular Halloween movies of all time.

Leaving social media users in awe, the footage features a person dressed as Halloween movie killer Michael Myers with a white mask and a knife in hand.

It’s probably no coincidence that this month includes the same date (next Friday, May 13).

The property, which has been designed with families in mind, needs a little updating but is full of potential and could serve as the perfect renovation project.

The house was shared on Twitter, where it racked up a lot of comments, with people divided over the house.

One person wrote: “This house has great NOPE energy.”

While many were spooked by the murderous killer, others were appalled by the bathroom with carpeting and a soft toilet seat.

One viewer commented, “The fitted carpeting in the bathrooms is awful.” Another asked: “Forget the guy with the mask. Is that…carpet in the bathroom??”

A third joked, “How do you sell a drab house with a carpeted bathroom? Add a guy with a Halloween mask!”

Spooky bathroom and house guest aside, let’s take a look at the rest of the property.

It’s a spacious home, featuring four bedrooms and bathrooms (two full baths, two half baths), on 2,750 square feet.







It is not known if the murderer comes with the house

The piece de resistance is the kitchen, which has French doors leading to the courtyard and a breakfast bar/island.

Outside you have a wonderful terrace and garden area, as well as pretty stone steps leading up to the house.

It’s unclear if the spooky figure will remain on the property, but he certainly takes center stage in the footage.

In one shot, he is “hiding” behind a curtain, while elsewhere he is sitting ominously in the background, cross-legged and staring intently at the camera.

One particularly gruesome photo shows him sitting on the stairs, holding a knife, along with another image that only shows his legs and the tip of the blade.

“But why does Michael Meyers wear socks and no shoes?” one person asked, mentioning the character from the 1978 movie Halloween.

Come knock on our door…we’ve been waiting for you…” someone else joked, referencing a popular theme song.

“But WHY YYYY?!?! asked another user.

“I hate every picture,” wrote someone else who didn’t seem to appreciate the horror element.

“As long as he cooks and cleans, we won’t have any problems,” another person added, including a crying and laughing emoji.

“Sounds like a good roommate,” someone else commented.

Others agreed with the killer, but said they were more frightened by the interior of the house.

“The only scary thing is those cupboard doors cut off in the penultimate pic,” one user wrote.

“This bathroom is the real horror,” someone else added.
