At this time of the year, people actually pay to visit a supposedly "haunted house" and of course hope that they will walk away with their own, special, first hand encounter with "whatever" or "whoever" has given the house its creepy reputation. All of this is good and fine, because just like when you see a horror movie at the theater, where after the horror part, the lights go up and you go to live in your safe home. The point is everything changes when it comes to actually buying and then living in a house that's stigmatized either by murder, suicide or an actual haunting.
