We’re a week into October, and that means leaves are starting to fall, the smell of autumn is in the air, and horror movie marathons are on TV almost every night. When you’re watching your favorite horror films, it’s safe to say you’re likely not thinking too much about windows. Windows are more of an “in the background” element of movies, but they can portray a more powerful statement than you’d expect. Since it’s nearing Halloween, we’re showcasing some iconic windows in horror movies. After this blog post, we bet you’ll notice windows a lot more during scary scenes.

Amityville Horror House Boasts Evil Window “Eyes”


Amityville Horror is a classic horror film that has a super recognizable (and super creepy) house. The story behind the Amityville house is based on a true story of real-life paranormal experiences. The family was terrorized by a series of paranormal events, and lived in the house for only 28 days.

The pair of fan-shaped windows are lit at the front of the house, almost resembling a pair of eyes on the evil house.
