Have you ever lived in a haunted house?

Would you ever stay in a home you thought was haunted? For me, it would depend on what kind of entity was making its presence known, and whether my family and I were in some kind of danger by co-habitating with it. Some ghosts are pretty cool, but some can be downright terrifying. And if whatever was haunting my house was remotely threatening, I'd get out of there as quickly as possible.



One couple in Toms River, N.J. feels the same way, because they are suing their landlord to regain the security deposit they put down when they rented a house they believe is very haunted. In fact, they were so spooked out by what went on in this place that they only lived there for one week.



Shortly after moving in, the family experienced unexplained whispering, the lights flickering on and off, things falling out of their closets, someone tugging at their bed sheets at night (yikes!), and footsteps in their kitchen.



They were so freaked out that they had a paranormal group come in and conduct and investigation, and they concluded that the house has an intelligent haunting going on. And then a pastor came in and said that it's a result of demonic possession. News flash -- demonic possession definitely isn't something you want to mess around with. You guys have seen The Amityville Horror, right? Remember how psycho that guy went after whatever was in that house got into his head? Yeah -- no, thanks. If something like that happened to me, I'd have a moving truck in the driveway in record time.



And speaking of The Amityville Horror, what makes this case even creepier is the fact that the movie was filmed in the exact same town as this house! How nuts is that?



The owner of the home is being all difficult and thinks that the family is trying to get out of paying rent they suddenly realized they couldn't afford. But they insist that they never would've rented a moving truck and packed up all their stuff and moved in only to move out a week later. The fact that they fled so quickly definitely leads me to believe that something scary was going on in that house, don't you agree? Moving is such a pain in the butt, and I seriously doubt anyone would want to do it twice over a span of seven days without a very good reason.



Here's the trailer for The Amityville Horror remake from 2005-- that movie always sends shivers down my spine!



Have you ever lived in a haunted house?



HELL NO would I stay there! And yes I have. It was so awful. Chairs would be stacked up on the tables, the cupboards would open by themselves, doors would slam, there was a smell of perfume, it was soo fucking scary!

havent had any "accidents" since just b4 i was pregnant, last one would have been, 2 1/2 weeks b4 i fell preggers, and since there has been nothing but fun in the bathroom so either it was a child crying out for attention or it buggered off, i will often wake to hear my son talking to someone or thing, first thing in the morning b4 he come out to us, n i believe he is either talking to his teddies telling them his dreams or to kaite (my mate who loved kids so much) but either way he isnt scared so neither am i, just glad it doesnt happen any more lol

No I haven't but I always thought that it would be cool to live in a haunted house. I'm fascinated by the paranormal. The only reason I would leave a haunted house would be if my son were scared.

Currently and many times in the past! Right now we currently share our home with two younger boys and for the most part it remains civil. They sometimes cause problems but nothing to bad.One time a library book and pair of glasses came up missing and when I got on to the kids for not keeping up with their stuff the book and glasses just appeared in places we had all searched many times! I can hear them walkin around and messing with stuff upstairs but they stay there and I stay down stairs.Kids see them more often then my husband and I.

I have jokingly said to my family that I will come back and haunt them if they do not follow my funeral wishes (Im very specifc on what I want! lol)



To make sure that my family are very clear on what I want, I wrote them on my blog (http://bellace85.wordpress.com/2011/10/0...) so that it is in a public place and noone has any excuse not to know/follow them! lol

when my husband was a kid, his family lived next door to a haunted house (his uncle actually live there for a while)

The old guy who lived there had slipped in the bath and died. At night you could hear him stomping around the house, the bathroom light was forever on (though constantly being turned off)

My whole in-law family heard it. it took a while to get used to, but it was definetely happening.



My husband and I own a cleaning business in the oldest historical town in Western Australia. A few of our client's premises are haunted. Late at night we can hear doors closing and footsteps.



its not something I admit much, but I am actually a medium and can talk to these ghosts. One is actually relatively friendly. his name is Dennis...and isnt a huge fan of the latest generation! lol

My experiences have been pretty mind blowing (a few scary experiences) but I absolutely love being able to contact them :)

My mam has some really freaky stories from when i was little we lived in the house for 5 years, pictures flying off the wall, bikes moving on there own, once my sister woke up the whole house screaming that "Sarah" was throwing toys straight threw her "Sarah" didn't excist.once the same sister terrified a baby sitter as she was stood screaming that old fashioned soldiers was marching through the wall. My mam started going a bit mad in that house we had to lock her in her bedroom on a night as she thought she was sleep walking and was afraid she would hurt one of us, she had a dream about a White witch and a black which and in the morning I told her all about it so she was unsure if she'd sat telling me in her sleep or we had some how had the same dream! I don't remember any of these thing's, when my gran died everyone except me had some kind of sign from her like the unexpected smell of oranges, to been told to slow down when know one else was in the car.
I would love to see something for myself although I wouldn't want to live with something.

My mam tell us that if we put her in a care home when she's old she'll come back to haunt us lol

I have a feeling it would be a more positive haunting though. She strikes me as a cabinet closing type of future ghost lol



"I could of sworn I left some dirty dishes in the sink. Mom? Was that you?"

My mom swears that the house we lived in for about 4 years when I was a kid was haunted, and that it followed us when we moved next door. She says the pictures would not stay on the wall, and it's why we had some with cracks in the glass. She claims that she was sleeping one night, and something pulled a chunk of her hair out and spread it across the pillow.



I still have nightmares about that house, occasionally. I always felt like I was being watched. I never felt alone. There is one bedroom in particular, it was everyone's room at some point. It was my room for maybe a week before I told my parents I was too scared to be in there.



Where I live now, is haunted, but it's a high rise building, and only certain units are haunted, according to the people who work here. I spoke to a maintenance man about an experience he had here, in an apartment a few floors down. My unit seems to be ghost free though.



My mom is a very spiritual person, and believes that if there is a way to haunt me, she will. She tells me to expect to hear from her in the after life. Gee, thanks Mom!
