La casa dalle finestre che ridono

I saw La casa dalle finestre che ridono some time ago.
What struck me with this movie was that it's set and was apparently filmed in a quite unusual location for a horror picture such as the countryside of Emilia, Northern Italy.
The desolated landscape of the Pianura Padana, scarcely populated by mostly strange individuals in few and far dwellings of farmers and basic institutions like restaurants, small police stations, rural churches and abandoned houses isolated in the wilderness is a powerful place to set a creepy story of  insanity and murder.
Too bad nowadays this colorful depiction doesn't quite stand up against the depressing reality of Northern Italy, whose rural and natural landscape has long been raped by the hypertrophic building trade that is consuming the land.
