3. The attic from The Changeling (1980)
The doorway to the attic in this 1980 horror/mystery film directed by Peter Medak is hidden behind a bookcase. Homeowner, Dr. John Russell (John C. Scott), and Claire Norman (Trish Van Devere), who leased the house to John, eventually discover that the hidden attic is hiding a dark and terrible secret. A poltergeist haunts the house and terrifies John and Claire, appearing as supernatural phenomena and apparitions.

Accompanied by former game players Alan Parrish (Robin Williams) and Sarah Whittle (Bonnie Hunt), they battle deadly animals, plants, weather, and even a hunter armed with a shotgun. When Alan takes his turn in the attic of the Parrish home, he rolls the dice to reveal the words “Beware the floor on which you stand, the floor is quicker than the sand” and is immediately sucked into the attic floor.
