Architect Breaks Down 5 Haunted Houses From Scary Films
It’s Halloween weekend! The best time of year to visit a haunted house. If you’re short on time to get creeped out in person, there’s always the movies, where there’s no shortage of iconic haunted housing. This video from Architectural Digest takes a look at some of film’s most famous haunted houses, and breaks down their historical and contextual design details. For example, Hitchcock’s Psycho draws on the combination of ornate detail and decay prevalent in Victorian era houses, which the video explains isn’t really an official style itself and rather a combination of elements from gothic, greek revival, and other architectural styles that work together contribute to emit that creepy and haunted vibe.
Michael Wyetzner of Michielli + Wyetzner Architects returns to AD, this time breaking down the architectural and design details of haunted houses in five classic films. From the wintery and ominous Overlook Hotel in the ‘The Shining’ to the unnerving suburbia of ‘Get Out,’ Michael highlights all the things you might have missed at these spooky movie locales.
