Pack your bags, kids, because the Halloween The house that Michael Myers built (well, scorched to the ground) is for sale. Like the IRL real estate market!
After the 2021 blockbuster Halloween kills, the Strode residence seemed to exist in whatever neighborhood it was in and to return as an ordinary house. However, when a house becomes famous from a movie franchise or TV series, neighborhood stalkers take to Reddit or OpenDoor and plaster those addresses all over the Internet.
In a cozy subdivision – gated or not – you’d think passersby would realize there’s a real family living in that real house. Yes, these are movie fans. That is rarely the case.
- The Full house Tanner Residence in San Francisco has 7′ signs out front reminding people that someone lives there.
- The White residence in Albuquerque, New Mexico had pizzas thrown on the roof for years because of that amazing scene in Break bad
- Home to Cleveland, Ohio A Christmas story outside had so many obsessed fans that it was turned into a museum.
- The freaky, possessed home away from home The Amityville Horror in Long Island, New York, was so frequented by horror fanatics that the owners removed the distinctive “eyes” on the house. (Did not work.)
For the love of Chip and Joanna Gaines, people live in these houses, people! Have a heart, take a picture and move on. The real residents aren’t interested in your small butt for Sunday dinner. They’ve had this house for generations, like since the 1940s, long before Laurie Strode was a sparkle in her father’s eye.
As real estate sleuths have learned, this is life for the soon-to-be non-residents of the Halloween house.
A Halloween house is not a home
The last trilogy in the Halloween saga was notable, considering it started as a horror legacyquel few gave hope of breaking even. The Blumhouse productions crushed profit expectations more than $315 million at the box office, which isn’t too shabby for a horror franchise.
The success was not welcome for current homeowners who have chosen to put their Pasadena, California, home on the market. Hopefully the excess char from Michael Myers’ flaring temper (and subsequent burning) didn’t leave any marks.
According to the real estate websitethe owners of the Halloween House is asking a paltry $1.8 million for their 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home. Depending on who you ask, a 5,200-square-foot lot is a hefty price tag. With beautiful wood laminate flooring, updated fixtures, and a guest bathroom that looks like Big Bird was slaughtered there, the footage takes you back to Michael’s killing spree over the decades.
It’s clear that EXP Realty’s marketing department needs to go back to college and learn the art of selling. If you read the description, you’ll notice that not a word is about Hollywood here Halloween into the house
Haddonfield, Illinois…er, Southern California. Wouldn’t that listing alone be worth at least $250,000?
It is worth buying the infamous one Halloween house. That small price would pay for the burned floorboard, the blood splatter in the cracks of that wooden laminate, or the therapy it would take to forget the horrible things that happened in that beautiful castle.
Of course the fine print is a bit bad. It turns out Laurie Strode grew up in a triplex, but there’s always Vrbo, right? Hey, it’s Hollywood. Just when you thought a knife-wielding psychopath had grown up in the middle of the Midwestern suburbs, turns out he was lounging in SoCal with a bougie drink and a small umbrella.
That Myers guy, what a poser!
