There is a certain spookiness, a certain dread, and even a tinge of horror most people feel deep down inside when they look at a house that isn’t particularly well-built, or a house that simply “looks weird” at first blush. The eerie house on the block stirs in the back of our collective subconscious and has for hundreds of years. The house you don’t want to go into was a cornerstone of writers from Charles Dickens to Stephen King, the touchstone for movies from Halloween to The Goonies, and a staple of television from The Twilight Zone to Supernatural.
