13Allison's House Is Actually The Most Haunted Place in Salem
The character of Allison was played by Vinessa Shaw, and she was the love interest of the film's protagonist, Max (Omri Katz). Her house can be seen in the early part of the movie when Max and Dani (Thora Birch) are trick-or-treating. After overcoming a meltdown,
Max and Dani find themselves on the doorstep of a home they decide belongs to "rich people," and they're not wrong. But in reality, the house is actually a museum that you can enter. It's called "The Ropes Mansion" and is located in Salem, Massachusetts. This is one of the only places in the movie that's actually in Salem, where the film is set. Originally built in 1768, it's rumored to be the most haunted place in Salem. Given the town's spooky history, that's pretty impressive. The Ropes Mansion was named after its owner, Nathaniel Ropes, an unpopular judge who died of smallpox in the house. His wife, Abigail, also died in the house when she burned to death a few years later. Rumor has it that they haunt the mansion.
