The Amityville Horror (1975)
The Amityville Horror house still stands to this day and honestly, it's a little hard to miss. While the eye-shaped windows featured in the film are gone, the house itself is still there as a private residence. I'm all for a nice road trip, but I'm just gonna let you go solo to this one...

Tourists in Salem, MA, might recognize the massive, white Colonial house with black shutters that sits at 318 Essex Street. It's Allison's house from Hocus Pocus, the 1993 Halloween flick that's now reached icon status and plays more than 20 times each October on ABC's Freeform channel. But while fans of the movie might already know that the house is real and not a Hollywood sound stage, they probably didn't know this: It's a museum, and you can visit it right now.

The house featured in 1991 classic thriller where "Buffalo Bill" stalks Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) is actually located in rural Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. And, in 2016, it sold for nearly $200,000. However, luckily for the new owner, the basement used in the movie was actually on a soundstage. The scariest part of this house? It has five bedrooms but only ONE bathroom. Talk about a horror.

This one goes out to all my fellow '90s kids! We all remember the Spellman Manor, filled with doors leading to other worlds and the aunts we wish we all had—plus, the most important thing, Salem, the talking cat.

When Kate Winslet's character comes from her small cottage in the U.K. and begins her stay at Cameron Diaz's L.A. mansion, you could tell she was a little starstruck.

It features a media room in the finished basement, a pool and spa, paddle tennis court, and rose garden. So yeah, I'd want to live there too.

While I'd love to think Ryan Gosling actually did renovate the house for the movie, filmmakers chose to take the already beautiful Martins Point home and make it look dilapidated for the early "before" scenes. This gorgeous five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom estate spans 4,255 square feet is just one of 18 homes on Martins Point Plantation, a 900-acre private waterfront community. Noah's house would cost approximately $12,000/month to rent today—according to an estimate experts at ForRent.com gave Domino. So there's that. Plan your trip here.

I think it's safe to say that every '90s kid wanted to have their turn in Kevin McAllister's sprawling house. That staircase, along with the rest of the home featured in the movie, is located on a quiet, tree-lined street outside of Chicago. Although you can't take a tour of the inside (I'd like to imagine it's still covered in wallpaper), you can see the exterior in person on a tour. Plan your tour here.

A Star is Born
Fans think they have found Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's secluded rockstar hideaway and that it might actually be a four-bed, three-bath home in rural Calabasas. While no one from the cast or crew has confirmed the news, I'll be the first to say that this home looks identical to the one shown in the film. From the art studio to the barbecue area, I can see why it was on the market for just over $2 million.

This iconic corner Victorian was the exterior setting for the 1993 classic where Robin Williams' character pretended to be a British nanny just to nab more time with his kids.

Let's be honest, the Cullens' house was just (if not more) as attractive/incredible/mysterious as the Cullen family. Because the house was built on a slope, it has that “floating among trees” illusion. Although you can only see the residence from the street, it does not disappoint.
