‘Halloween’ villain’s presence helped Illinois home listing go viral

A home listed for sale in Carlinville, Illinois boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and the “Halloween” killer Michael Myers.

Owners Danielle and Owen Sullivan listed their home on Zillow for $ 169,000 with photos of the masked movie character creeping around the house.

“Anyone who knows me, knows that I literally love Halloween. It’s just who I am,” Danielle Sullivan said. She explained that while her husband was working in the house, she asked their 16-year-old son Cole to dress up as Michael Myers to scare his dad.

“We went there and he was dressed in costume, standing at the top of the stairs all creepy.”
