Whether you’re a horror movie buff or prefer your movies a little less scary, you can’t deny that the houses  in horror and Halloween movies become a character all their own. We’ve compiled a list of the 7 most recognizable movie houses, some spooky and some not so much!

1. Halloween, South Pasadena, California

Halloween House

Though it’s found new life as a chiropractic office, Michael Myers’ simple, two-story home was initially abandoned when the producers of Halloween decided to use it for the film! Does anyone need an adjustment?

2. Hocus Pocus, Salem, MA

HOcus Pocus House

One of the not-so-spooky movies on our list, Hocus Pocus cemented itself as a Halloween classic for the horror-averse. Now, the house that Max and Dani lived in is happily a residential home with no witches to worry about.

3. The Woman In Black, Cotterstock, Northamptonshire, UK

Woman in Black

When Director James Watkins chose Cotterstock Hall as the setting for The Woman In Black, it was perfect in every way except one: it was pristine! The production crew spent 4 days covering the house + grounds in ivy, weeds, and moss before it was ready to play its spooky role.

4. Beetlejuice, East Corinth, VT


Before you start buying plane tickets to Vermont to see the iconic Beetlejuice house, we should probably tell you that it was just a facade built for the film and later torn down. All of the indoor scenes were actually shot on a set in California.

5. Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets, Northumberland, UK

Harry Potter

Harry Potter fans will immediately recognize Alnwick Castle’s courtyard as the same one that Harry received his first flying lesson in. Beyond wizardry, the castle gained some notoriety for being the only English estate to feature a poison garden.

6. The Shining, Mount Hood, OR


While Stephen King’s fictional Overlook Hotel was based on The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, the film adaptation used Timberline Lodge in Mount Hood, Oregon for exterior shots. Fun fact: the owners of the hotel asked the movie producers to change the number of haunted room 217 to 237 since it doesn’t exist at the Timberline.

7. Rocky Horror Picture Show, Windsor, Berkshire, UK

Rocky Horror

Last, but certainly not least, Oakley Court played host to Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s musical chaos in The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This hotel + event center certainly has the feel of a devious doctor’s lair, doesn’t it?
