10. Intruders
Black Fish Films

WATCH NOW amazon.com

The exterior of this house is gorgeous—from the front porch, to the balcony and those massive white columns. But the interior could definitely use an update. Since it's not quite there yet, it's coming in at number 10.

8. House On Elm Lake
Wild Eye Releasing

WATCH NOW amazon.com

This lakefront property might have a modern kitchen and a front porch, but it’s sort of the creepiest-looking home ever. No waterfront view can make up for that—or the fact that it’s possessed by demons. It takes the number 8 spot on our list.

7. Beetlejuice
The Geffen Company

WATCH NOW amazon.com

So Beetlejuice may not be a scary movie, but it is creepy, and this country home is too awesome to ignore. The house looks good before and after a posh, modern makeover. And who could forget that amazing attic? We’re putting this one at number 7.

6. Disturbia
DreamWorks Pictures

WATCH NOW amazon.com

If you can forget about the basement full of dead bodies, this house is actually a suburban dream home. The blue and white color combo is classic, and there’s even a two car garage. Then again there’s no pool, so we’ll have to give this house the number 6 spot.

5. What Lies Beneath
DreamWorks Pictures

WATCH NOW amazon.com

The takeaway from all of this might be to never buy a lakefront home. This movie, about a woman who’s either being haunted by a ghost or is losing her mind, has killer waterfront views—and a terrifying secret. But let’s overlook that and focus on this gorgeous pergola. That traditional style’s enough to put this house at number 5.

4. The Haunting
DreamWorks Pictures

This spooky mansion looks like something straight out of Harry Potter. Those long hallways, intricate woodwork, and huge stairwells all play into the creepy castle vibe. But it might be a little too much, so it’s coming in at number 4.

WATCH NOW amazon.com

This early 2000s film would be largely forgettable, if it weren’t for the house at the center of it all. It’s so modern, it may make you overlook the weak plot line. This place has everything: The pool! The sleek staircases! The funky art. A solid three on this list.

WATCH NOW hulu.com

Did you know this house is actually a castle in Spain? I guess that explains all the rich architecture, incredible woodwork, and those massive, creepy windows. Oh, and who could forget the incredible yard? That’s enough to land this house our number 2 slot.

1. When A Stranger Calls
Screen Gems

WATCH NOW amazon.com

The view from this lakefront property drop dead gorgeous. Poor choice of words? I can’t help it. From the floor to ceiling windows, to the open staircase where the babysitter fights off her attacker, this modern mansion deserves all the praise. Plus, with an indoor Koi pond and a chic guest house, it’s no wonder this place is at the top of our list.
