An East Lancashire property ripped straight from computer game series Resident Evil has hit the market leaving house hunters horrified.
One person said the property looks like what happens when ‘estate agents make horror movies’ with an ominous wheelchair abandoned in a dilapidated kitchen and black scorch marks on the walls featured throughout. A link to the three-bed end of terrace property in Oswaldtwistle being advertised on Rightmove was shared on Twitter and left some viewers a little unsettled.
The grim pictures show black marks covering the home and counter tops of the kitchen and a thin drape over the singular living room window. There were also black marks on the floor and furniture askew along with smashed windows and leaflets for Domino’s on the floor.

The state of the house led some to believe it was horror-movie material. One Twitter user left stunned by the state of the property wrote: “When estate agents make horror movies”.
The property, which is currently on the market for £40,000, may make for quite the nice family home, if it weren’t covered in what might be burn marks, the Daily Star reports. Another social media user gave an accurate description of the home, writing: “Legit looks like the VR version of Resident Evil 7”.
But why bother with VR when one homeowner could live the real experience? For those brave enough to view this listing and scroll through the many interior photos provided, the property also appears to include a lack of ceiling and a pile of clothes.
But one Twitter user was a tad more optimistic, writing that all the house needs is a “lick of paint”. Wise words followed from another person, who wrote: “Don’t lick anything in there.”
A very brief brochure entry gives limited detail on the property on Garden Street, whose price starts at £40,000 and would be ideal for, as one Twitter user wrote: “people with imagination and love DIY.”
The brochure entry from Pattison Estate Agents reads: “We are pleased to bring to the market this three-bedroom end of terrace house. This property would be an ideal investment opportunity and has loads of potential.
“The property briefly comprises of a kitchen/diner, living room, three bedrooms, a bathroom and a yard to the rear.”
One user provided a not-so-kind comparison of the Lancashire-based property to that of the one found in The Amityville Horror. They wrote that they could already picture “Rob Steiger running from the building pursued by flies.”
