Horror Movie Architecture

Psycho is considered one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best horror films. Norman Bates’ character was loosely based of Ed Gein’s crimes in the 1950’s. Ed Gein was also the inspiration for the other horror films such as the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Silence of the Lambs. Yet it’s the architecture of the film Psycho that often resonates with people. The Victorian features of the Bates’ house make it exceptionally eery. Still, there is another even more iconic home that was more fully based off of actual events…the Amityville Horror

The newspaper archive listed above details the brutal murders that took place in 1974. Joseph DeFeo, Jr. was convicted of killing his mother, father and four siblings while they slept. The Amityville Horror film was based off the novel written by Jay Anson about the paranormal events the Lutz family experienced after purchasing the home in 1975. Regardless of whether you believe it’s haunted, there is something truly creepy about that house.
