About The House with the Laughing Windows

This is the undubbed Italian trailer for Pupi Avati’s atmospheric pseudo-giallo, set in a small Southern Italian village. Though the film was never released theatrically in the US, the advent of home video has opened up a whole new appreciation for such influential but generally unheralded genre films, only a fraction of which were seen outside Europe up until recently.
