Halloween won’t be Halloween without a haunted house story. Although we’ve had our fair share of actual haunted houses and project sites, we couldn’t resist the hair-raising scenes in these famous haunted houses in horror films and shows. And we won’t blame you if you decide to sleep with the lights on tonight!

Haunting of Hill House

Loosely based on the 1959 Gothic horror novel by Shirley Jackson, this creepy series has recently kept Netflix viewers on their toes. In 1992, the Crain family moves into a sprawling mansion that they renovate. Paranormal encounters ensue, and it all ends in tragedy, causing the family to flee the house.

Why do families love to move into dilapidated and creepy houses? The Perron family knows no better, and after moving in, THEY  find an abandoned cellar, and all the crazy hauntings (and possessions) begin. Demonologists Ed Lorraine Warren step in to investigate. So, the next time you hear clapping, don’t look for the source! Plus, a horrifying tidbit: the movie is based on a true story of a possession case from the Warren couple’s files.

The Others

Do you trust your servants? Or, “has mummy gone mad?” Those were the questions that Nicole Kidman’s character Grace Stewart faced when she was left with her two children in a huge house right after World War II. Because of the children’s photosensitivity, the house is kept in almost total darkness, which makes their encounters even more frightening. Also, watch out for one of the most terrifying plot twists/ending in modern cinema!

Amityville Horror

In 1974, Ronald Defeo shot and killed all of his family members in this house in Amityville, Long Island, New York, and this story went on to spawn several books and movies. This Dutch Colonial-style house (yes, that’s what it's called, not a house with eyes) then became one of the most recognizable haunted houses in popular history—there’s even a Lego version of it.

We’ve decided to throw in one local film, and who couldn’t forget Kris Aquino and the cursed Bagua mirror in her unassuming, suburban-village-house? A tip: Bagua mirrors aren’t unlucky, though, these are supposed to help you combat bad chi (and possibly, “Lotus Feet”).

Haunted hotel: The Shining

We couldn’t resist including this classic Stanley Kubrick horror film. Jack Nicholson plays a recovering alcoholic who takes on a job as a caretaker of a Colorado hotel to write. With him are his wife and psychic son, who eventually gets glimpses of the hotel’s terrible past. Goriness and horror ensue. And if you’re a pop culture weirdo who loves the psychedelic pattern of the hotel carpet, you’ll be pleased to know that they now sell it online.
