Thornton Gardens from “Funny Girl”

Dec 8th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I have never been a big Barbra Streisand fan.  Sure, she’s an undeniably talented singer – and actress and director, for that matter – but I’m just not that into music.  And that whole Rosie-O’Donnell-having-to-rearrange-her-stage-to-showcase-Barbra’s-better-side thing really turned me off.  I won’t even get in to her absolutely cringe-worthy Inside the Actors Studio interview.  Nevertheless, when I came upon this 2016 Outlook Newspapers article which mentioned that the movie Funny Girl had done some filming at a house located at 1155 Oak Grove Avenue in […]



John Adams Middle School from “Heathers”

Oct 27th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

The Grim Cheaper is a celebrity magnet.  Literally everywhere he goes, he runs into someone famous.  It’s maddening because 90% of these encounters occur when I am not with him.  Like the time he stopped by a Starbucks while on his way to a business meeting and saw Keanu Reeves sitting outside.  Or the night he ate dinner at a table next to Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart and then watched as the two flew off on their private plane from the airport situated adjacent […]



Rebecca’s Apartment from “Lights Out”

Oct 24th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

I am always tickled when I spot a location I have already stalked pop up in additional productions.  Amazingly, that happened twice in the past month with today’s locale, the former Highland Park branch of the Security Trust & Savings Bank.  I originally learned of the site thanks to its many appearances as the Battle Creek Police Department/FBI field office on CBS’ short-lived 2015 series Battle Creek, which was one of my and the Grim Cheaper’s favorites.  I ran out to stalk the building the […]



High Tower from “Dead Again”

Oct 20th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

I did not see Dead Again when it was first released in 1991 (at 14, I was too young for such an intense thriller), but I vividly remember my parents coming home from the theatre raving about how great it was and how much I would have loved a particularly disturbing scene involving cigarettes.  It was not until years later, after I met the Grim Cheaper, that I finally sat down for a viewing.  The flick was worth the wait.  Dead Again is honestly one […]



The Smith Estate from “Insidious: Chapter 2”

Oct 18th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

Considering I’ve been stalking full-time for close to a decade and annually covering Haunted Hollywood locales for just about as long, you’d think I’d have the market on spooky sites cornered by now.  That is definitely not the case, though.  I am continuously discovering new-to-me spots, scary and otherwise, which speaks more to the vast history and landscape of Los Angeles than anything else.  There’s always somewhere fresh to be explored in this magical place we call LaLaLand.  One frequent horror film star that I […]



Madeline and Ernest’s Mansion from “Death Becomes Her”

Oct 13th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

It’s Friday the 13th!  Friday, October 13th!  Could anything be better?  This Haunted Hollywood season, the universe has really been pushing me to watch Death Becomes Her.  I had never seen the 1992 flick and, while I knew it was about two longtime female rivals obsessed with aging, always assumed it fell into the comedy genre and, for whatever reason, never had much interest.  But while researching Lacy Park recently in preparation for this post, I came across a 2016 Outlook Newspapers article that chronicled […]



The “Scream” Warehouse

Oct 12th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

There has been so much tragedy in the world as of late.  I’ve always avoided watching the news, but recently I feel like not even turning on my TV at all.  Between the heartbreaking massacre in Las Vegas, the multitude of hurricanes plummeting the Eastern seaboard, and the fires ravaging both Orange and Sonoma Counties, devastation seems to be everywhere.  My mom and I were actually in Santa Rosa visiting my aunt and uncle last year at this exact time.  Hearing reports of the blaze […]



The “One Hour Photo” House

Oct 9th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

Today’s location is not spooky – at all, in fact.  It’s actually quite exquisite.  But it did figure rather heavily in the creepiest scene from one of the creepiest movies I’ve ever seen, so I thought it would only be fitting to include it in my Haunted Hollywood postings.  I am talking about the contemporary residence where the Yorkin family – Will (Michael Vartan), Nina (Connie Nielsen) and Jakob (Dylan Smith) – lived in One Hour Photo.  I first got interested in tracking down the […]



The “Lights Out” House

Oct 3rd, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

“Lights Out Cast Accidentally Cursed the House Where they Filmed.”  So blared a headline from an Entertainment Weekly article about the 2016 horror film.  As you can imagine, the words had me drooling.  I first learned about the movie back in January from fellow stalker “sparklesnow” who left a comment on one of my Instagram photos asking for some help in tracking down the large Tudor-style estate where virtually all filming took place.  When I popped “Lights Out” and “house” in to a Google search, […]



The “Pacific Heights” House

Oct 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

I have been waiting for this day for months!  Yep, that’s right folks – it is finally, finally time for my annual Haunted Hollywood postings and I could not be more excited!  In honor of the occasion, I have added a Haunted Hollywood category to my site and while I typically only publish three columns a week during normal months, I am going to attempt to do a write up of a new spooky spot every single day of October.  God knows I have enough […]
