Homes for Sale in Horror Films

Houses tend to have subtle influences on their owners; often, one can become connected to a place because of memories and nothing more. People sometimes act as if a building were a living organism that gathers the residue of events that have taken place inside. Throughout history, people have held a certain fear for locations that have held strange or disturbing events. The topic of haunted homes has mystified moviegoers since the dawn of film.

Strewn throughout the history of horror films are stories about homes for sale, in which a person or family moves in only to begin perceiving strange happenings that gather in menace over time. It often is revealed that some dark event took place with previous owners of the house and the evil never left.

In "House on Haunted Hill," for example, a group of people attempt to stay the night in an abandoned asylum where a doctor is said to have experimented on his patients in gruesome ways, often leading to their deaths. An eccentric mogul offers a large sum of money to anyone who manages to stay the whole night. Unfortunately for them, an evil and vengeful force claims the lives of all but two of the guests. In the film "The Haunting," a similar situation unfolds. A doctor conducting an insomnia study invites some victims to a mansion where they can participate. The mansion, of course, is haunted by wrathful spirits.

In the show "American Horror Story," the family moves into a house, astonished at the size and beauty of a place so cheap. The realtor hesitantly reveals the reason for its low price: each of the house's many owners met a violent end. The family, not to be scared off, moves in. It is not long before strange things begin to happen; the building is infested with the ghosts of former residents, all trapped in the mansion. By the end of the story, the family has joined the other ghosts. However, rather than harass subsequent residents, they scare people from moving in before they have a chance to meet the same fate. A nice twist on the traditional tales of haunted houses, the family actually gets along better than ever before, as ghosts.

There are countless other such films, such as "Amityville Horror," "The Conjuring," "Poltergeist," and "The Devil's Backbone," to name a few. One could surmise that this veritable obsession with horrors so connected with homes for sale is related to our innate fear of the unknown. It's a somewhat harrowing notion to invest in a new residence and move into a space that does not yet feel like it belongs to you, one that still resonates with the lives of those who lived there before. The same fear accompanies newly constructed buildings. Even if it's a new building, maybe there's that chance it could have been built on a sacred burial ground, and the spirits will seek vengeance. Perhaps all this fear of mysterious houses arises simply from our fear of change. Either way, these movies, while immensely enjoyable, should never be confused with reality; there's no reason to fear homes for sale. Moving into a new house can be a wonderful experience!
