The haunted house transcends genre, appearing in mysteries, gothic romances, comedies and horror films. This book is the first comprehensive historical and critical study of themes surrounding haunted houses in film. Covering over 100 films, this reference work spans from the Mystery House thrillers of the silent era to the high-tech, big budget productions of the 21st Century. Included are the works of acclaimed directors such as D.W. Griffith, Robert Wise, Mario Bava, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Tim Burton and Guillermo Del Toro. The book also covers the real-life haunted house phenomenon and movies based on paranormal case files, including those featured in films like the Conjuring series.
