5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Giallo Oozing With Atmosphere!
When Shameless Screen Entertainment first announced that they will be releasing THE HOUSE WITH LAUGHING WINDOWS, I was excited to say the least! This has been one of those films that have long been on my list of titles to check out after hearing so many great reviews. Thankfully, the movie not only lived up to expectations, but surpassed them too!

THE HOUSE...

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh Sisters, Where Art Thou?
Antonio, recently reacquainted with his friend Stefano who has come to renovate a fresco in the local church depicting the Martyrdom of St Sebastian, has discovered something he shouldn't. Something is rotten in the Italian backwater, but before he can divulge his suspicions he finds himself on the wrong side of a top floor window and plummets to his death while a shadow...

1.0 out of 5 stars awful, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Housing with Laughing Windows is an absolute waste of time and money. A masterpiece of Italian horror I've watched episodes of Scooby Doo which were scarier, and as for atmosphere Russ Abbott has more atmosphere. I'd save my money for a more deserving movie if I were you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horror or comedy?, 10 Jan 2014

(REAL NAME)   
The word Masterpiece gets banded around far too often and this film is in no way close to that description. It's not a cheap film either, otherwise I would still be laughing at this comical so called horror. The basic story is that an artist comes to a remote village to restore a fresco within the church, which depicts a man chained up and being tortured by two haggard looking women. The original artist has died and the priest wants it restored. The new artist stays in the local hotel but has to move out soon due to some lame excuse and then, unquestionably, is taken to another house where there is only a bedridden old lady on the floor above. Stories about the original artist are told to the new guy and he is being warned off finishing the paint throughout the film.

Translate a slow build up of tension (from another review) as a boring film that never really gets going. The "shocking" climax is actually mildly amusing but the laughter will quickly stop when you realise that this has just cost you over £10! So to save you money, basically the old lady in the house he is staying is obviously one of the old hags in the painting and the artist was her brother. The painting was off an actual torture and (shock horror) it is still going on because the other sister is still alive too! Hopefully you are sitting down as the final surprise my overcome you... the other sister is the priest!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Zzz*, 29 Jun 2013

This review is from: The House With Laughing Windows [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
Please don't be taken in by the mountains of revisionist praise heaped upon this 1976 snoozefest. The photography may be above par for this sort of thing but after 40 minutes the Italian scenery loses its charm then...my god its dull. This is coming from someone who has watched Anthropophagus more than once. There is a reason this flick did not get a UK release first time round: it sucks! But thats just my little opinion.

Demons is much better in every conceivable way.
