Famous Horror Film Houses (Video)

It's the neighborhood from Hell! Take a tour with sculptor Tracey Snelling of famous horror film houses from The Birds, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and The Amityville Horror.

"Behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil."

Houses of Horror #3: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

Those who didn't ride the horror wave in the 80's may be surprised to discover that the original Freddy was quite the hardened dream slasher. After all, he's the bastard son of a thousand maniacs.

Houses of Horror #2: The Amityville Horror (1979)

Return to The Amityville Horror with Tracey Snelling's incredible miniature replica. The tiny model even features an LCD screen running clips from the 1979 film.

Houses of Horror #1: The Birds (1963)

There are four famous horror films in Tracey Snelling's 'The Last House on The Left' art installation. Each day this week I'll feature one in a short video clip, and provide brief commentary on the related film.
