PARIS, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Lodging website Airbnb announced a contest to win a spooky Halloween stay with six million deceased roomies in the Catacombs of Paris.

The contest, which interested Halloween revelers can enter on Airbnb's website, offers overnight accommodations for two people Oct. 31 in the Catacombs, a public museum that was filled with the remains of about six million Parisians to relieve cemetery overpopulation in the late 18th century.

"Before bedtime, a storyteller will have you spellbound with fascinating tales from the catacombs, guaranteed to produce nightmares. Finally, enjoy dawn with the dead, as you become the only living person ever to wake up in the Paris catacombs," the listing reads.

The listing's "rules" state guests should "respect the Catacombs as you would your own grave" and there are no pets allowed, but "you can be assured there will be a monster under your bed."

The contest calls for adventuresome entrants to "tell the host before midnight October 20th why you think you're brave enough to sleep in the catacombs."
