The House with Laughing Windows: a pinnacle of Italian horror cinema

Stefano (Lino Capolicchio) arrives in a small Italian village to restore an old church. There he discovered a fresco representing the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian painted by a local artist who committed suicide twenty years earlier. Strangely, the local residents are very hostile to its restoration.

Directed in 1976 by Pupi Avati (Zeder: voices from beyond), The House with Laughing Windows is one of the great giallos of the period. Four years earlier, Lucio Fulci's The Long Night of the Exorcism already portrayed the Italian countryside, mysterious and sinister, as the home of secrecy and superstitions.
