Rob Zombie has a new house in Laurel Canyon, which—despite a closet with a giant cute dog face on it—has lots of spooky potential.

Mr. Zombie, who previously owned a home in Hancock Park, purchased this gray compound earlier this year, according to Curbed LA. The two-bed, two-bath home was built in 1953. The design comes from architect Robert Thorgusen, while Garrett Eckbo landscaped the spacious yard. According to the listing, the yard is quite secluded, the living room has ceilings that are 14 feet high, and the family room opens to an "indoor/outdoor koi pond." The home sold for $2.49 million.

According to real estate gossip blog Yolanda's Little Black Book, the home was a lot more cream-colored when it last sold in 2006, which was not nearly as aesthetically appealing or appropriate for a man who likes to slam in the back of his Dragula.

Zombie has been been rather busy lately, touring with Korn on their "Return of the Dreads" tour. His latest horror flick is also about to come out on VOD this month and in select theaters on October 21. 31 follows the harrowing ordeal of a traveling group of carnival performers who are kidnapped by a bunch of sadistic weirdos who force them to play a game in which they must survive for 12 hours while evil clowns try to kill them. Meanwhile, a group of other weirdos take bets on how long each one will last. So, typical Rob Zombie.
