Bil Bungay from advertising agency BMB, has announced that he is set to sell the house where he shot 'When the lights went out', a film about a house being haunted by a poltergeist.
Now on sale for £1,666,666, the house was previously owned by the aunt of Pat Holden, Bungay's former creative partner, in the 60s, with the film written and directed by Holden to show the ‘truth’ about what happened in his aunt Jean's council house.
Bungay joked to The Drum: “If the price doesn't scare you then perhaps the poltergeist won't either.”
It is said that the haunting was the most 'violent' in the UK, with the ad including pictures of the house with helpful captions such as 'dragged up stairs' and 'the Black Monk appeared over the bed'.
The ad reads: 'The scene of the most terrifying poltergeist haunting in British and European history is yours to own. Wiki 'Black Monk of Pontefract' before asking to view this property. Serious enquiries only. E-mail contact only.'
