Marilyn Manson is thrilled with his new Hollywood home - because it's haunted.

The shock rocker bought the new pad, which is next door to one of pal Johnny Depp's homes, just before he started work on his new album The Pale Emperor and he admits his time there has been marked by slamming doors and things that go bump in the night.

He tells Revolver, "Doors slam behind me a lot, and I'm always hearing people walking up and down the stairs - but I ain't afraid of no ghosts."

Manson has since discovered a silent film actress from the 1920s died in the place.

He adds, "I don't want to say her name, because she'll probably try to come out and... (attack me) one night."
