Something’s In The House

I like to start celebrating Halloween a month early. We have a Christmas season, so why not a Halloween season? To help celebrate, I made this playlist of vintage Haunted House movie trailers on YouTube.

I sequenced it chronologically (for the most part), so you can view the evolution of haunted house films over roughly 40 years, starting with The Uninvited in 1944 and ending with House in 1986.

It’s interesting to see how the marketing techniques changed over time. One thing that stayed the same: The inherent spookiness of the haunted house. Enjoy!

Warning: Trailers may not all be work safe.
