There comes a point while house hunting where you are so tired and fed up from the experience that you are just about ready to throw your money at anything as long as it has a roof and a few walls–even the eight movie houses we wouldn't live in for any amount of money. Unfortunately, doing this could land you with a whole mess of problems later on–and we don't just mean having to deal with bad water pipes or a termite infestation. Some houses are more than just money pits, they are gateways to Hell and they will drag you down there just as soon as you've signed your name on the dotted line. Check out this list of movie houses to see what we mean.
When a house in a ritzy residential neighborhood is re-purposed for something as bizarre as a waxwork museum, you should probably beware. Bad things tend to happen in the suburbs (see above) and nothing good can come of a knock-off Madame Tussaud's where all the exhibits feature the creepiest monsters and most psychotic killers of literary and movie history.
The house here doesn't seem all that scary at first, as the serial killing owner does the majority of his work elsewhere. But when you take into account that the house was once some kind of rundown old folk's home, and that it still contains many of the furnishings, appliances, and medical paraphernalia of that time, it takes on a whole new level of creepiness.
When the introduction to the house basically boils down to "some houses are just born bad" you know that it is not a domicile that will be featured in Better Homes and Gardens anytime soon. Whether you are watching the original film or the remake, you get the same idea–this house does not like people and it will prove it. Doors slam, invisible feet walk up and down hallways, voices call out from rooms where no living being has entered, and dreams are disturbed by urges to wander into dangerous places and possibly kill yourself.
"House on Haunted Hill"
In the original film it is a large house with a sordid history and a tendency to eat the owner's family members. The remake ups the scare factor by changing the house to an old asylum where a nasty doctor with too much creativity and not enough adult supervision performed horrible experiments on the patients.
Once upon a time an entire family was brutally murdered within the rooms of this house and they left some majorly bad vibes behind them. The poltergeist occurrences aren't even half of the problem with living in this house. The fact that it drives people insane and gives them the urge to go on murderous rampages of their own is even worse.
