The “Teen Wolf” Party House

Apr 6th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations


As I mentioned in the post I wrote back in January about the residence where Pamela Wells (aka Lorie Griffin) lived in Teen Wolf, fellow stalkers Chas, from the ItsFilmedThere website, and Owen recently embarked upon a mission to track down all of the locations used in the 1985 comedy.  One of the locales that they both wanted to find was the house where the high school party was thrown in the beginning of the flick, just before Scott Howard (aka Michael J. Fox) finds out that he is a werewolf.  Because no address number and no street signs were visible in the background of the scene, though, we really had nothing to go on for this one and Owen was fairly certain that, as the movie had been filmed well over two and a half decades ago, the chances of finding the place were slim to none.  Well, as fate would have it, a few months before Owen and Chas began their Teen Wolf hunt, I had been doing some stalking in a residential area of Eagle Rock and had gotten to talking with a homeowner who filled me in on some of the filming that had taken place in his neighborhood.  One of the places he pointed out to me was a house that he said had been used in Teen Wolf.  Because he had never seen the movie, though, he was unsure of what scene the house had appeared in or if it had, in fact, even made it into the final cut of the flick, so I did not think much of it at the time.  But when Owen sent me a screen capture of the party house and asked if I had any idea where it might be located, I recognized it immediately and sent him back the address.  There’s an old saying that goes, “Work begets work.”  Well, in this particular instance, I’d have to say that stalking begets stalking.  Winking smile

The Eagle Rock house only appeared in one brief scene in Teen Wolf in which Scott and his friends, Rupert “Stiles” Stilinski (aka Jerry Levine) and Lewis (aka Matt Adler), attend a high school house party.  It is while in one of the home’s closets that Scott and Lisa “Boof” Marconi (aka Susan Ursitti) kiss for the very first time.

I am very happy to report that the property looks pretty much exactly the same today as it did back in 1985 when the movie was filmed.

And, as you can see in these photographs, the real life interior of the property was also used in the filming.  Oh, what I wouldn’t give to see the inside of that house and take a picture in the closet where Scott and Boof kissed!

From what I can tell from this photograph and this photograph, though, that closet may have been a fake that was built in the room located directly off of the kitchen.  As you can see in the above screen capture, the closet door was located next to an arched built-in bookshelf that is visible in the photographs that I linked to.

And as you can see in the above screen capture, the built-in bookshelf is located directly next to the kitchen, which is also visible in the photographs that I linked to.  So, from the way that it appears, I believe that producers created a faux closet on what is, in actuality, the home’s backyard patio.  Ah, the magic of Hollywood!

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  Smile

    I grew up in that house…. it was called the the Shearin house….my parents lived there when they filmed Teen Wolf.. the closet your talking about was built for the movie… it was actually french doors that opened out to a large deck my dad built. Couple of commercials have been filmed there. An interesting note, the house was haunted!!!! it was built in 1915 by a doctor who treated patients there.

      My grandfather was Dr. SHEARIN and he was head of the English Dept. at Occidental College and was slated to become their President. He died in his early forties leaving my dad who was 6 years old and my aunt who was 4 years old. My grandmother Ruth B. SHEARIN lived there until 1952ish when she moved to Glendale with her daughter and husband. She was an English teacher for many years at Glendale Hoover High. My grandfather, Dr. SHEARIN, never saw patient’s there since he was never a medical doctor. Loved seeing pictures of the house. We drove by there yesterday. Many fond memories of playing in backyard and in the house. Bill SHEARIN

    Whoa, that Plan-It Locations site is amazing, but impossible to search! You just have to get lucky with finding stuff on there huh?

    • Lindsay says:

      Yes, it is VERY hard to navigate! 🙁 If their locations could be searched by city it would be so much easier to use. So yeah, you either have to get lucky finding stuff on there or spend a LOT of time searching, which I usually do. LOL

[…] Quick Stop Liquor, which was named Tony’s Liquor in the flick, shows up twice in Teen Wolf.  It first pops up in the scene in which Stiles (Jerry Levine), donning a trucker hat, sunglasses and a shirt that says “Obnoxious: The Movie”, tries to purchase a keg of beer from the store’s curmudgeonly owner (Harvey Vernon) before heading to a house party, the location of which I blogged about here.
