The House that Screamed in Horror

Are you alone?

Are you sure?

What if I told you that there is a good possibility that you are never alone?

Did you ever have that feeling when you are taking a shower that there is someone hiding, waiting, breathing just on the other side of the shower curtain? You see the curtain begin to move slowly in and out. Were you alone then? Or was that just a little lie that you told yourself to make yourself feel better. To make it easier to cope with whatever was lurking on the other side of that curtain.

I was once like you. Lying to myself. Fooling myself. Convincing myself that I could be truly alone whenever I wanted to be. Now I know the truth...

This sounds like the introduction to a novel by King or Lovecraft, Poe or Barker. It could be, too. But it's not. It's part of the introduction to the astounding true story of the Union Screaming House haunting written by Steven LaChance, the man who lived it. The Uninvited is as frightening as any novel of terror, but every word describes events that actually happened.

The House and What Happened There
Union, Missouri, is a small town about 35 minutes southwest of St. Louis. In 2001, Steve LaChance, a single father of two, rented a historic, three-bedroom home that had originally been built in 1932. Almost immediately, strange things began to occur. His son, terrified, claimed a man was in his room. LaChance's own dreams were of terrifying, screaming demons.

Over the months that followed, the signs of a horrifying haunting increased. There were mysterious growls, heavy breathing, singing, voices, prayers, and screaming. Pets, including puppies, cats, and a hamster inexplicably died. People where thrown, held against walls, pushed, shoved down stairs, bruised, bitten, and more. Several people became physically ill simply by coming to the house.

After two and a half months filled with terror, he moved out, but became friendly with the woman, Helen, who moved in after him. The hauntings didn't stop. They carried on, terrifying Helen with mental and spiritual attacks, even physical rape, such that she was moved to murder, madness, and suicide. Only a last-second intervention by LaChance saved her life...and perhaps her very soul!

An Extreme Haunting
This story of a real haunting starts out with a man just trying to get his life together and take care of his children. But it quickly degenerates into a tale of terror so horrifying that we each can only hope that it is fiction. But The Uninvited isn't fiction. It's true. The house was investigated several times, by priests, psychics, paranormal investigators, and even famed demonologist Lorraine Warren. Can anything stop the madness before death is added to the physical, mental, and spiritual attacks?

Unlike popular movies, The Uninvited does not come to a neat closing where all the loose ends are wrapped up. When you finish this book the mystery of this house may even be greater than when it began. For LaChance, "facing your demons" became a frightening reality. Since that time, he has been able to come to terms with what happened.

The question is, will you? After you read this true report, written in an exciting style, will you be able to stay alone? By yourself? That noise...is it simply the settling of the house on its foundations or something else? That light...was it just a car driving by? Then why didn't you hear it? Will you be ready for what happened to LaChance? If it happened to him and his children it could happen to you.

Sitting here in the dark, watching the moon shine over the autumn landscape (my favorite time of year) I find myself reflecting on the question that is most frequently asked of me: "How do I know if my house is haunted?" The question seems so simple, so endearing and direct, but it is as complex as the human mind or the spiritual realm and it... read this article
