Many of L.A's most beautiful, historic homes have a dark history and reports of hauntings, like the infamous Los Feliz murder house, the former home of a famous gangster, and an architectural wonder that might have been the site where the Black Dahlia was brutally slaughtered, not to mention where one of L.A.'s most notorious murder victims supposedly had a vision of her own ghastly death.

Since this is the land of make believe, several of these been put to effectively spooky use in our favorite horror movies, TV series and videos since they practically scream "Beware!" (Even if the realtor swears they're not actually haunted.)

And in each neighborhood, there are always those homes that simply look haunted and we won't be convinced otherwise.
