There is truth to the Masterson haunting. My friend has been in Arizona real estate for over 10 years, he recently told me about this house in QC that has had an enormous amount of trouble being sold, its been on and off the market year after year. He than began to explain it was haunted and was associated with the Masterson haunting, the only difference was the last name of the family was not Masterson and that several deaths DID occur in this house, the house was purchased and protected by the new tenants lawyers from slander and libel, hence is the reason why NOTHING can be said about this house and its horrid past.
Here is the actual house, check out the bars on the windows and front door,he said this was to keep people from getting in to check the place out, since rumors have become truth, this haunting actually is believed in QC amongst the locals .
Actually, I find it highly unlikely that the house would be "protected from slander and libel" as you can't put a gag order on the whole world, or even all journalism, people are allowed free speech and the utterance or writing would have to be tried and deemed libel or slander.
This is false. The movie never claimed to be "based on a true story" it just presented words in the beginning of the movie that built up the story, much like paranormal activity did. It was a low budget, poorly acted movie with an interesting plot and AWFUL sound. The writer MAY have pulled from some stories they heard, but they did not claim that this was the presentation of a true story.
Also, bars on windows/doors are pretty common if you live in an area where you want to leave them open but may have wild animals that could get in.

Dutch well thank you for sharing with us the home details what a beautiful home inside and out.. too bad it is haunted.. wow!
You know as popular as it seems to people to own a haunted home I am surprised this has not been bought. Reason why for the Short Sale too.. usually Short Sale homes it is because of hauntings or something is definitely wrong with it..
Again thanks for sharing that with us..
I am not sure if i have seen the movie but it is like all the rest of them I am sure.. sort of true.. like Haunting in Conneticut and Amityville, and others..
I will have to look up the movie and see if I have seen it before but it does sound familiar.
Interesting points though and thanks again for starting this topic, very interesting indeed!
No, actually, a short sale usually has NOTHING to do with "hauntings or something... definitely wrong with it..." and everything to do with a homeowner attempting to avoid the devastating effects of forelosure. As wiki puts it so well a short sale "is a sale of real estate in which the sale proceeds fall short of the balance owed on the property's loan. It often occurs when a borrower cannot pay the mortgage loan on their property, but the lender decides that selling the property at a moderate loss is better than pressing the borrower."
There's lots of short sales happening, especially now, and I doubt even 1% of them are due to a haunting.
