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.
