Just in time for Halloween, horror-film enthusiast Marc Hagan-Guirey has made these papercut versions of famous haunted houses, in a series he calls Horrorgami. He’s already created four houses from horror films and T.V. shows: The Shining, The Amityville Horror, The Exorcist, and The Addams Family.
