Horror Houses: Scary Settings That You Can See in Real Life, From The House on Haunted Hill to Insidious

It's may be cliché to say a given movie's setting is a character in of itself, but nonetheless it's often true when talking about the creepy locations of scary movies. This past week, the film Crimson Peak opened in theaters. The titular mansion – Allerdale Hall, colloquially known as Crimson Peak – seems designed to creep you out, even when there's nothing explicitly scary happening.

Every October for the past six years, an animated hangman wearing a noose and a gunny sack has been on display in Kevin Van Miltenburg's front yard. But the NAACP thinks that Van Miltenburg's tradition should be put to an end.

If someone asked you to name a Christmas carol, you'd probably have no trouble naming a dozen of them. If someone asked you to name a Halloween song, however, you might not be quite as quick to think up a complete playlist. You see, while Halloween can compete with Christmas well enough in the decoration and candy departments, there just aren't that many traditional songs associated with Halloween.

The slasher-comedy The Final Girls opened in theaters Friday, and that very title begs horror fans to wonder who among the cast will be the actual last girl standing: American Horror Story vet Taissa Farmiga or Malin Ackerman, the actress playing the character in the film's movie-within-a-movie.

LaRethia Haddon's husband's birthday falls on Halloween, so she really gets into the spooky spirit. For the past 25 years, she's been indulging in an annual tradition that's still riling up residents in her Detroit township.

Halloween is approaching, and the only logical way of preparing (other than stocking up on candy) is by binge-watching horror movies until you're rendered unable to speak or sleep because of the accumulated nightmare fuel of dozens of fright-auteurs coursing through your brain. (Well, that and the pumpkin spice lattes.)
