Scary crowds trespassing at the “American Horror Story” house have prompted its buyers to file a lawsuit against the former owner and realtors who sold them the multimillion-dollar Los Angeles property which appeared in the FX network anthology.

Dr. Ernst von Schwarz and Angela Oakenfold purchased the $3.2 million Rosenheim Mansion in 2015 but claim they weren’t informed by real estate agency Coldwell Banker that the “Murder House” had been involved in the first season of the show, the Real Deal reported.

Since moving in the couple has seen hordes of fans making pilgrimages to the house, including scaling fences and climbing walls to get a better view, CBS News reported.

"We have had several break-ins,” Oakenfold said. “We have had on three or four occasions just in the last year, had to call the police.”

The Rosenheim Mansion had been on and off the market for several years, fluctuating in price from $17 million to $3.678 million, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The couple said they had researched the house online but at no point did they know it had appeared in “American Horror Story.”

Their lawsuit filed on Feb. 7 in the Superior Court of California is seeking $3 million in damages for a breach of contract as well as “fraudulent concealment,” The Wrap reported.

The filing said “hundreds of fans of the TV show would come to the property, trespass, attempt to break in, and created a significant nuisance not only for the seller, but for the neighbors as well.”

The couple said they felt cheated.

“We want to live here of course. But it is very difficult because we don't feel safe," Von Schwarz said, per CBS News.

Coldwell Banker agent Stephen John said it was “disappointing when any client involved in a real estate transaction is unhappy,” noting that he had “no doubt that the truthful facts of this case will resolve this matter in our favor,” per The Wrap.
