At the top of the trailer, the couple appear to be on the verge of purchasing their dream home as they house hunt.

Curious as to why the property has been on the market “for a while,” Sara inquires about its long-term availability.

It is at this point that the couple learn of the house’s checkered past, which includes being the scene of a suicide and a double homicide.

In an unexpected response, Sarah assures the real estate agent of her interest in the property, saying, “You know, I don’t mind a little haunting.”

As the story unfolds, those words may very well come back to haunt them.
