Hell, Yeah! Laurie Strode’s HALLOWEEN House is for Sale

For the Halloween house for sale, that character is “Homicidal Maniac.”

Pack your bags, kids, because the Halloween house that Michael Myers built (well, scorched to the ground) is on the market. Like, the IRL real estate market!

Following the 2021 box-office hit Halloween Kills, the Strode residence seemed to exist in whatever neighborhood it was in to return as a regular home. However, when a house becomes familiar from a movie franchise or TV series, neighborhood stalkers take to Reddit or OpenDoor and plaster that address all over the Internet.

In a cozy subdivision–gated or not–you would think passers-by realize that’s a real family living in that real house. Yeah, these are movie fans. That’s 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 great scene in Breaking Bad
  • The Cleveland, Ohio home from A Christmas Story had so many obsessed fans outside, it was made into a museum.
  • The freaky, possessed home from The Amityville Horror in Long Island, New York was camped out by horror buffs so much that the owners got rid of the signature “eyes” on the house. (Didn’t work.)

For the love of Chip and Joanna Gaines, people live at these homes, folks! Have a heart, take a picture, and move on. The real residents aren’t interested in having your narrow behind over for Sunday dinner. They’ve had this house for generations, like, since the 1940s–long before Laurie Strode was a glimmer in her daddy’s eye.

As real estate sleuths have learned, such is life for the future non-residents of the Halloween house.

A Halloween House is Not a Home

The final trilogy in the Halloween saga was remarkable, considering it began as a horror legacyquel few gave hope for breaking even. The Blumhouse productions crushed expectations earning more than $315M at the box office, which isn’t too shabby for a horror franchise.

The success hasn’t been welcoming for the current homeowners who have chosen to place their Pasadena, California, home on the market. Hopefully, the excess charring from Michael Myers’ flaring hot temper (and subsequent incineration) didn’t leave marks.

According to the real estate website, the owners of the Halloween house are asking for a paltry $1.8M for their 4 bed/3 bath abode. Depending on who you ask, a 5,200-square-foot lot is a decent price tag. Featuring lovely wooden laminate, updated fixtures, and a guest bathroom that looks like Big Bird was slaughtered in there, the images take you back to Michael’s killing spree over the last few decades.

Evidently, the marketing department at EXP Realty needs to go back to college and learn the art of sales. If you read the description, you will note that not one word about this is the Hollywood Halloween house in Haddonfield, Illinois…eh, Southern California. Wouldn’t that mention alone be worth at least $250,000?

It’s worth it to buy the infamous Halloween house. That small price would pay for the burnt floorboard, blood splatter in the cracks of that wooden laminate, or the therapy it would take to forget the heinous stuff that happened in that lovely chateau.

Of course, the fine print sucks a little. It turns out Laurie Strode was raised in a triplex, but there’s always Vrbo, right? Hey, it’s Hollywood. Just when you thought a knife-wielding psycho was raised in the midst of midwest suburbia, it turns out he was lounging in SoCal with some bougie drink with a tiny umbrella. That Myers guy–what a poser!
