The House of the Laughing Windows ★★★★★

Daily Horror Hunt #23 – May 2020 Day 4. Let's have a 70s Dinner Party with a 70s horror, the 70sier the better! If you want to eat something encased in jello while you watch, I won't judge.

When I first watched this as a young lad, searching out anything Giallo, I don't think I quite got this movie. It wasn't what I was expecting from the genre, no black gloved killer, low levels of blood for most of the runtime, no nudity, and a very slow pace. Nowadays though, I think all these things are what make me love this movie. I mean, it's visually gorgeous, has a great score, has twists and turns, amazing locations (countryside/old buildings), and it drips with dread and an air of mystery throughout the entire runtime. It even managed to creep me out a couple of times, which is fairly hard to do these days.
