Heck House [1] is the Mount Everest of haunted houses, the most frightening one in the world - built by Jonas Heck. Over a period of 50 years, no paranormal investigator could stay the night at Heck House and live to tell about it. [2] [3] [4]

HistoryEdit

Jonas Heck wanted to build the most haunted house in the world. Heck traveled the world and studied magic. He returned home and built Heck House, filled the library with 2,436 books (including Poe, Jackson, Matheson, Howard, Machen, Le Fanu, Lovecraft, and Bloch), and cast a spell that brought all the stories to life and prevented them from leaving. [5] [6] [7] Over the decades, only a dozen people have lived at Heck House. [8] The rest were paranormal investigators who were either killed or driven insane. A Paranormal Studies professor managed to stay half the night but was reduced to a drooling mess. He turned out to be one of Ray Stantz' former professors. [9] [10]

After the passing of E. Henry Merriweather, a former adventurer, Jeffers Marston executed his will and issued a challenge to the Ghostbusters. [11] [12] If they could stay at Heck House from dusk to dawn without their Proton Packs, they would each receive $1 million. [13] [14] [15] [16] They accepted and managed to collapse the house onto itself like a black hole by using the house wiring to turn the structure into a giant Ghost Trap... five minutes before dawn. [17] [18] [19] Peter Venkman salvaged the Pyrrhic victory by taking Heck House and turning it into a paper weight, with all its 2,436  ghosts still trapped inside. [20]
