The Murder House in the first season of American Horror Story was another character the show had in its arsenal. You could almost feel the residence, home to the ill-fated Harmon family and a hotbed of supernatural-infused activity, breathing and moving, nearly swallowing the family whole on multiple occasions. It bolstered the vengeance and destructiveness of the spirits trapped within the walls, their loneliness and confusion turning into anger and a penchant for violence with each year they restlessly roamed the halls.
Plenty of families passed through doorway of Murder House, a stop on a paranormal home tour in the area, before the Harmon family and plenty of people will follow in their footsteps, not knowing the horror the lays in wait for them. The thing is, will those people look into the history of the house before they officially purchase it? Or will the promise of a beautiful home for a severely reduced price be too good an offer to pass up?
