RISMEDIA, Oct. 24, 2007-Halloween’s creeping up and scary movie junkies willing to go beyond watching a haunting classic are in for a thrill at REALTOR.com. Only for the brave, the bloggers at Move.com examine three of our favorite scary-movie classics and a few homes for sale in the “thriller” neighborhoods available for “living it” up this Halloween.
Stephen King’s novel “The Shining” takes place at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO. This majestic hotel, one hour from Denver, is nestled among Colorado’s Rocky Mountains with easy access to the Rocky Mountain National Park. The hotel plays up its haunted past with ghost tours like The Shining Ball where guest are entertained with live music, a costume contest and a buffet diner “prepared by [their] ghoulish staff.”
Despite being an unassuming brick home on Prospect Street in Georgetown, DC, one home will forever be rumored as haunted thanks to William Friendkin’s 1973 film “The Exorcist.” Also famous for the steep stairs on M Street directly behind the house, today the area is a popular tourist destination, featuring charming homes built circa 1880 by wealthy ship owners, merchants and land speculators.
One Home in Georgetown with a video tour offers an insider’s view of what it’d be like to live in this part of town: Classic Georgetown
Blair Witch Project
The small town of Burkittsville is the setting for the 1999 film “The Blair Witch Project,” a modern classic made to look like a real documentary. Portrayed as an area haunted by a presence called the Blair Witch, the real town is not scary and is surrounded by the rich history of the Antietam Battlefield National Park, the Gettysburg National Historic Park, and The Civil War Museum of Medicine.
