If you’re too creeped out to visit a haunted house — let alone sleep in one — the home pros at Zillow have designed a first-of-its-kind digital experience that might help you live out your spooky house fantasies without ever actually stepping foot inside one.

In honor of Halloween, you can take an interactive 3D tour inside Zillow’s creepiest listing, 667 Dead End Drive, a spine-tingling virtual walk through the dark hallways of a fictional manor, said to be haunted by the ghost of the home’s former owner Edith Thistle.

This tour starts like any other, but it quickly takes a turn into terrifying territory, with something new and scary around every corner. You’ll discover that the ghost of Edith Thistle has left haunting clues about her demise throughout the manor, creating an interactive scavenger hunt with a seriously strange stuffed animal, a pop-up visit from the weasel from the jack-in-the-box, and a creepy clown lurking in the shadows — all of which will help you uncover the manor’s myriad mysteries.

The floor plan helps decode some of the mysteries, and it’s based on the same 3D technology that Zillow users have come to know and love in their search for their dream homes. The floor plan serves as a digital guide, integrating still photos of the fictional haunted house with the 3D home tour to provide an eerily realistic sense of the home’s flow and space.

Of course, creepy home listings are nothing new on Zillow, but this one might take the cake with its property on a secluded, dead-end street, a dark cellar cellar complete with built-in meat locker, wooden doors that creak with every movement, and every nook filled with spooks aplenty. But it’s a great deal, given that it’s got four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and enough square footage to suit any brave souls willing to step inside.

The estate is based off of a real historic home in Altadena, California called the Woodbury-Story House. The 1882 home has been prominently featured in horror movies and TV shows, including “True Blood,” “American Horror Story,” “Amityville Horror: The Evil Escapes,” the Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures,” “The Unseen,” and more.

Even though you can’t actually visit the haunted manor, you can always marathon-watch the house that inspired it on film and TV to enjoy the home’s one-of-a-kind presence.
