There is a common thread that runs through just about every haunted house horror movie: a family moving into a new home.

We easily relate to these characters because, face it, moving is scary.

People who move are undergoing a major life transition, and whether it is for positive or negative reasons there is a certain fear that accompanies the unknown. But what if that new home you move into actually is haunted?

SpareFoot conducted a survey this year that found 7% of Americans have moved or considered moving because their house was haunted. Los Angeles residents were exceptionally spooked, with 10 percent saying they have moved because of otherworldly disturbances.

We compiled those stats and more into the spine-tingling infographic below:
