Learn More About The Haunted House Drawing

​​In many parts of the world, the idea of a haunted house is one of many cultural superstitions. Typically, supposed haunted houses have been the locations of deaths, murders, witchcraft, or other spiritualistic rites.

The houses are thought to be inhabited by ghosts or other supernatural creatures, and stories abound of strange happenings in such places.

​​The idea of a haunted house likely originates from the widespread religious belief that a spirit leaves the body after death. This spirit or ghost is then thought to remain in the house - either due to an affinity to the place or because of some terrible happening.

Such beliefs are especially common in areas in which deceased ancestors are revered and worshiped.

​​Haunted houses are often portrayed in films and similar media. For example, the 2006 animated film Monster House features a haunted house that is itself a living creature.

2012's Hotel Transylvania takes place in a hotel owned by a vampire and frequented by Frankenstein, werewolves, mummies, and other beings.

​Fun houses called haunted houses are often established in celebration of Halloween. These often involve low lighting, frightening decorations - skeletons, mummies, batsspiders, zombies, and more - and even live actors who jump out or chase unsuspecting guests.
