I am not at all a fan of the 1979 movie Phantasm, though you’d never guess it judging by the amount of posts I’ve done on its locations (you can read them here, here, here, here and here). What can I say? Crappy film, fabulous locales! Ever since I first saw the flick last year, I had been itching to visit Julian, a small census designated place located about thirty miles east of Escondido in San Diego County. Several areas of the town, namely Julian […]
There is no more iconic moment in the 1989 classic Teen Witch than the epic “Top That” street rap scene. Stalking the location where it was filmed was pretty high up on my list of things to do while I was in L.A. recently (after stalking the main house featured in the movie first, of course!), so I was floored to find the address listed on the 80s Film Locations and The Location Scout websites.
Those who have yet to see Teen Witch (and what’s stopping […]
It is finally that time of year again, my favorite time of year – October! And you know what that means – it is the start of my annual Haunted Hollywood postings! What better way to kick things off than with a location from the much-loved movie Teen Witch? Somehow I only just discovered the 1989 flick, which is shocking being that I am nothing if not an ‘80s child. I wound up absolutely LOVING it, though. I mean, what’s not to love? Teen Witch, […]
My buddy, fellow stalker Owen of the When Write Is Wrong blog, is a huge Jennifer Love Hewitt fan. Like huge. He is also a fan of filming locations and, over the years, has managed to track down the vast majority of locales featured in his fave JLH movie, 1998’s Can’t Hardly Wait. One that had eluded him for some time, though, was the convenience store where Kenny Fisher (Seth Green) shopped at the beginning of the flick. He recently got a tip from a […]
Anyone who has ever driven on the I-10 Freeway east of downtown Los Angeles has most likely noticed the A-line, red-roofed building that towers over the skyline to the south. That building is Bob Hope Patriotic Hall. I have passed by it hundreds of times and have always wanted to venture inside. A couple of weeks ago, while on our way back to the desert, the Grim Cheaper and I finally did. Though the Bob Hope Patriotic Hall website says that the property is open […]

I have a very special post coming to you today – the first of its kind at IAMNOTASTALKER! Sara Johnson, one of my longtime readers, recently headed to Juliette, Georgia for an epic Fried Green Tomatoes stalking trip and was kind enough to write up her experiences to share with my fellow stalkers. So, without further ado, I present to you the first ever IAMNOTASTALKER guest post. Enjoy!
We drove all night from New Port Richey, Florida to Juliette, Georgia and arrived at the The Old […]
Since we’re on the subject of Girls Just Want to Have Fun, I thought I would blog about another locale from the movie that I recently hit up – downtown L.A.’s California Bank Building, which masked as the Dance TV (aka DTV) studio in the 1985 flick. A couple of years back, Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, managed to track down the location via a helpful crewmember, but because nothing about the structure matched up to what was shown onscreen, I was never sold on […]
Today’s post was a true labor of love – one that required stalking a location three separate times and a massive amount of help from a fellow stalker named Michael. While most of the locales from the 1985 movie Girls Just Want to Have Fun (one of my all-time faves) have been tracked down and detailed on this blog, one that I have long wondered about is the park where portions of the dance practice montage sequence took place. As luck would have it, I […]
