For any of your American Horror Story junkies going through latex suit or Jessica Lange withdrawals, we've got good news. Though season two will take us away from the so-called "murder house" that no one seems to escape alive, the people behind this F/X series have found a way to let you explore real-life murder houses in your own backyard. It's all in the form of a creepy new website, coming your way in August.

Here's how the site works: After going to ahsmurderhouse.com, you type your street address into the search bar. A list of houses will pop up with a Google Map next to it. The top house listed is your own, but the others are homes in your neighborhood that have been the sites of actual murders.

If you click on your house, the AHS Murder House "ghosts" over your abode, leading to scares like the infamous Rubber Man invading your screen.

So if you're ready to start sleeping with a baseball bat under your bed, be sure to check out the AHS Murder House digital experience when it goes live in August!
