Kids lucky enough to step up to this house are in for tricks and treats.

Children throughout this mysteriously unnamed California neighborhood have been dragging their parents to see the “Monster House,” an eight-eyed, multi-fanged Victorian house belonging to the parents of Christine McConnell, an artist, photographer, and year-round Halloween fan.

Inspired by the movie, Monster House she spent four days converting her childhood home into a haunted mansion that comes to life.


“It came out even neater than I had planned,” McConnell told TODAY. “It was a bit of a madhouse once the eyes were up. Tons of people were stopping their cars to take pictures.

Believe it or not, the entire project only cost $250 for paint and materials — the green lights being the most expensive part.

It's now a Monster House ????

This isn’t the first time McConnell has scared up attention for her creations: she’s also a baker who’s gained Instagram notoriety for horror-themed treats.

A new cookbook featuring these creepy concoctions, Deceptive Desserts: A Lady’s Guide to Baking Bad! is due in bookstores in March.
