But not for Brad Pitt and his family as he bought the house and moved in along with Angelina Jolie and their children before they parted ways.

“We were just kind of warning him that a lot of weird things have been going on there in the house since we moved in. And he was very excited about that. He thought that was really cool.”

The Munsters actress continued explaining that she had several spooky encounters in the 29-room mansion, such as “people walking upstairs,” “a ghost sitting downstairs”, and even a spirit “floating around at the bottom pool.”

“I’ve seen people walking around upstairs, for example, real people just walking. One time [a ghost was] sitting downstairs in front of the fireplace, once walking into my bedroom and back out,” Peterson recalls of the spectral encounters. We saw a person floating around at the bottom of the pool, things like that.”

“I know that sounds nutty. I’m Elvira. I know you expect that from me, right?” Cassandra Peterson says with a laugh and she insists, “I don’t have hallucinations, I wasn’t high and I can’t explain those things.”

Peterson, and her husband, Mark Pierson started having haunted incidents in the mansion right after they moved in, and it escalated to the point where they had to exorcise the mansion because they were not sure if they could “continue to live here.” However, when she told Brad Pitt about the details of the haunted incidents, he loved the mansion even more.

“[We] had a priest come in to do an exorcism. I had all kinds of things because it was really getting to a point of like, ‘I don’t know if I can continue to live here,’ So we were telling Brad all about that and he loved it. I mean, there are not many buyers who that would be a selling point for, but he was like, ‘Oh, that’s so awesome.’ I love that he appreciated the house so much.”

Even though Brad Pitt loved the ‘haunted’ house which he bought from Cassandra Peterson in 1994 for $1.7 million, it seems the Troy actor has grown bored of the enormous mansion, as he sold the house nearly after 30 years.
