5 Haunted Houses We’d (Almost) Risk Living In

Don’t worry, the scares are all fictional but the set design is very much real and impressive so we’re going to dedicate a post to it. We have listed five of our favourite haunted homes from film and TV, ranging from Gothic masterpieces like Hill House to the quirky Whipstaff Mansion from ‘Casper’, each showcasing stunning design, imagination and a love of eerie detail.

 

 

Whipstaff Manor from ‘Casper’ (1995)

Who didn’t love this mad mansion/the perfect place to host a Halloween party? From the spiral foyer floor to the textured red walls and bronze columns, the entire set was mesmerising.

Hill House from ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ (2018)

The most recent offering is Hill House from the named Netflix series. We love the fixer-upper feel of this place, as it has as many intricately finished features as it does creepy, decaying details.

The Titular Mansion from ‘Crimson Peak’ (2015)

We’ve looked at this set before in a different blog post and we’re no less impressed than we were back then. This entire set is stunning; creepy and beautiful in equal measure.

The Maitland’s House from ‘Beetlejuice’ (1988)

It may have been haunted by nice ghosts, but it still counts. And we’re mad for the design of this Connecticut summer home – the dining room in particular.

Eel Marsh House from ‘The Woman in Black’ (2012)

For us, this is the scariest house on the list and probably the one we’d be least likely to enter, but if anything could tempt us it’s the stellar decor – even in its dilapidated state.
