A TikToker said they discovered a basement underneath the flooring of their storage closet that they didn’t know about, and TikTok users compared the discovery to the plot of a horror movie.
In the video — posted by user @abi_mia14 in May — the TikToker takes viewers into a storage closet underneath a staircase where the flooring has been removed, revealing a gaping hole and a dark staircase. After walking down the stairs, the TikToker reveals the basement is filled with ripped posters and dust-covered shelves. The on-screen text reads “someone has 100% been down here.”
In the comments section of TikTok, @abi_mia14 wrote that they typically store their vacuum in the closet and noticed that the flooring sounded hollow, which led them to remove it to see what was below. TikTok user @abi_mia14 did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
The video had nearly one million views and more than 29,000 likes at the time of writing, and some TikTok users said they were thoroughly creeped out in the comments section.
“Buh, that’s like ‘The Conjuring,'” one user wrote in reference to the famous horror movie where the main character gets trapped in a basement by a spirit.
“Just close it up and act like you never found it,” someone else added.
Others weren’t as surprised by the hidden basement.
“Do people not see floor plans and deeds to houses prior to buying?” one TikToker questioned.
“Fam, that’s common in UK houses,” another person wrote.
User @abi_mia14 isn’t the first person to chronicle their surprising home discoveries on TikTok. Across the platform, users have posted about their unexpected finds.
More than a dozen TikTokers were shocked to learn that their bathroom medicine cabinets had slots for old, rusty razor blades, which was a feature common in homes built earlier than 1970.
