Haunted . New . Orleans

Nicholas Cage is selling one of his homes (how many does a person really need?) in New Orleans. Apparently the house is haunted:

The LaLaurie house is a six-bedroom home on Royal Street that was a house of horrors in the mid 1800s. Delphine LaLaurie is believed to have tortured her slaves. Accounts differ as to what actually happened but the stories span the range from starving, beating and imprisonment to far more lurid and unspeakable acts. In 1834 there was a fire at the house and Madame LaLaurie disappeared never to darken the door of her own home again. Some reports say screams and the sound of chains dragging on the ground have been heard in the house and several owners have bought the home and then quickly sold it.


To me, living in a house with ghosts sounds fabulously cool. And if I had 3.5 million, I would buy this house. But I definitely would hire a decorator different from Nick Cage's:

I always want to see a ghost, but I am sure I will be scared out of my mind if I ever do see one!

Yes, those paintings on the wall are awful!

Wow, that house is totally ug on the inside. I'm already redecorating it in my head...

Oh, but I couldn't live there, even though I don't believe in ghosts. Too spooky!

Great house but really does need some work on the decor.
