Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron grew up next door to a haunted house.
The High School Musical star, who was raised in Arroyo Grande, California, has revealed there was a ghost-filled home that people were afraid of, reports imdb.com.
"When I was growing up, the house next door was haunted and nobody would go inside. It had all these broken boards and all kinds of weird stories happened there," he said.
Despite being scared of what was potentially inside the spooky property, Zac and his friends plucked up the courage to go in one day.
"One time me and my friends went in but it was really weird like something in Alice In Wonderland. We had to hike through a field of tall grass to get to the front porch. There was a smashed window in the back, so we went inside and looked around.
"We went up to the attic and heard a bunch of noises. We were like, 'What is that?' Then all of a sudden bats just flew out at us - we were scared and ran away. I'm pretty sure the place is haunted," he said.
