New Jersey Homebuyers Sue Sellers for Not Telling Them About Scary Guy Who Demands Blood

A New Jersey couple with three children thought that they were buying a very nice house in Westfield for $1.3 million. And they were, but what they were also buying, unbeknownst to them, was a creepy horror movie villain who calls himself "The Watcher." They are, understandably, none too pleased.

After recieving three letters from The Watcher, the Broaddus family has filed a lawsuit against the previous homeowners, the Woods, for failing to disclose the thing about the guy who is obsessed with the house and also blood. His letters sound like the stuff of bad fiction, but in real life they have to be very frightening. Some excerpts from the letters, from the lawsuit.
