This old Victorian mansion, located in the small town of Macon in central Missouri, has a past. Built in the 1870s, the house was rumoured to be haunted by the spirit of a woman whose father, a coal baron, was murdered during a labour dispute. In the 1940s, it was the house of Butch Patrick’s grandma, the actor who played Eddie Munster in the 1960s sitcom about a family of monsters.

In 2014, Patrick bought the house with plans to turn it into a destination — a place where guests could spend a weekend in surroundings reminiscent of “The Munsters” creepy mansion at 1313 Mockingbird Lane.

Of course, not all of us can or want to live in a haunted house, but some of us do. Here are seven examples of homeowners who took their house decorations to an entirely new level!

1. Ghostbusters

You’re going to need more than a rolled-up newspaper to squish these creepy crawlies.

Not quite haunted house creepy, but it’s fun, festive and family-friendly.

While not as scary as ghosts and ghouls, these Autobots certainly transform a lovely family home into an awesome Halloween display.
