The infamous Fortuneteller house from the horror film classic, Phantasm (1979), has hit the market on April 3, 2015 for $955,000. Surprisingly, the house looks exactly the same today as it did for the film in 1979 almost suggesting that no one has lived in the home this entire time. The other odd thing is that the home most recently sold on August 14, 1994 for $900K and prior to that sold on April 24, 2014 for $625K. So it seems that nobody wants any business with this house or maybe its haunted.

The current owner is SceL Properties LLC who purchased from Asi Sason Shabo who purchased from the Harold F. Miller Living Trust. Its possible that the Miller Trust was possibly the owner when filming took place back in 1979 but its hard to verify as online property records dont go back that far.
