A couple from US who believed they had found a bargain dream house realised that the inexpensive deal was due to it being the house that inspired an infamous horror film.
Shockingly, on a teenage boy it was where a Catholic priest performed an exorcism.
The infamous spiritual events inspired the hit 1973 movie The Exorcist and its 1971 novel.
Last year, Ben Rockey-Harris and Danielle Witt found out this three-bedroom house, which they said was going for $377,000 (£276,623), over $500,000 (£366,875) lower than its estimated value.
Knows about house’s terrifying history
The couple thought they had bagged a bargain when they obtained the home in August; they found out about the house’s terrifying history online later, via MailOnline reports.
A boy who was 14 years old had been possessed by a demon at that residence in 1949, Washington Post reported at the time.
After that, the Catholic priest then performed the unusual exorcism ceremony.
Ministers noticed furniture sliding around the floor as the teenager moaned Latin phrases.
On 1949, August 20, it is assumed that the priest freed the teenager after he broke into a severe tantrum of screaming.
Their dream home ended up being the house that inspired a horror flick. However, the couple said they weren’t scared of the home’s history.
Rockey-Harris told NPR: “I’am thinking I’m going to get a Catholic priest Halloween costume this year and get an amplified speaker and have The Exorcist soundtrack just playing on a loop on our front porch for trick-or-treaters.”
