The floors creak and groan as the colder weather sets in. Kitchen lights turn on and off by themselves and garage doors open on their own in the middle of the night. Window shutters slam shut in the wind and maniacal creature eyeballs watch from the attic. Demented screams of fear and desperation come from somewhere in the house.
These are just a few of the lovely and enchanting features of some of the top haunted homes for sale in America, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
