The Amityville Horror (1979)
The facade of this spooky house looks like a human face, especially when the attic lights are illuminated. It's enough to freak out anyone seeing it from the afar. Add to it the ghosts who brought a swarm of flies and started flinging inanimate objects around, and you've got a haunted house with personality. The real life Amityville home is still a year-round stop on horror hunter tours.
The Haunting (1963)
Hill House, in 1963's The Haunting, is the creepy location in which a "scientist" brings three people to in order to "explore the unknown." By that he meant the sound of screaming, mirrors falling off the wall and mysterious apparitions. It's a house you really have to keep your eyes on.
The Others (2001)
So, just who exactly is living in the remote mansion in The Others with Nicole Kidman and her two children? Beats us. Although, whoever it is certainly likes turning on lights, locking doors, and hiding in the curtains.
House On Haunted Hill (1959)
There's something extra creepy about black and white, which is why you should opt to visit the 1959 version of the House on Haunted Hill, starring horror legend Vincent Price. This abandoned home is where he throws a party but not the fun kind: the ceilings drip blood, the walls move, and the guests are unlikely to leave alive.
