Why The Victorian Mansion Is A Horror Icon

Post by Riddick » 10-23-2019 08:43 PM

Why is a haunted house in movies always a Victorian mansion? Well, they're creepy looking. And old, which means they come with an extensive history.

But there are other reasons that tales of murder, mayhem, and hauntings go well in such a setting. After all, no one expects a ghost in a suburban ranch house. Vox explains the history of how our classic tales came to be set in Victorian mansions.

The Old Jessup House was once a UK paranormal forum some years back. I was very active there but the couple as it's owners had something strange go on and it went off line.

The web page's picture was an old, huge wood frame Victorian Mansion just like the one above! :shock:

Now I will watch the video, thanks Riddick! See ya later here on Paranormal again sometime if you checked the box for replies! :D

Yep, watched it! An FB like "Like" with a thumb up but hey all, buyers beware! :oops: :lol:
