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 Haunted House from “The Goldbergs”

Oct 6th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, TV Locations

There’s literally nothing better than being scared at Halloween!  In my mind, at least.  Terrifying movies?  Yes!  Spooky decorations?  Yes!  Haunted houses?  Yaaaas!  Especially haunted houses!  Too bad Adam F. Goldberg (Sean Giambrone) doesn’t share my sentiment.  In the Season 3 episode of The Goldbergs titled “Couples Costume,” the teen only begrudgingly visits a haunted house on All Hallows’ Eve in the hopes of impressing his girlfriend, Dana Caldwell (Natalie Alyn Lind), after his sister and brother, Erica (Hayley Orrantia) and Barry (Troy Gentile), tell […]



Myra Jones’ Former House

Oct 4th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, This and That

Though I love true crime and pretty much all of its facets, there are some cases that I find too sad and disturbing to read about, research, do any stalking of, or feature on my blog.  Today’s locale, the site of the brutal rape and murder of a 71-year-old grandma, is not one I would typically cover.  But the victim’s connection to what is arguably Hollywood’s most iconic thriller and the serious mistaken identity that resulted from her killing had me utterly fascinated.  I figured […]



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 […]



Halloween 2016 at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride

Nov 3rd, 2016 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, This and That

I love anything and everything having to do with the ‘80s.  So when I started hearing buzz about Stanger Things, a horror series on Netflix with deep ‘80s undertones, this past summer, I knew I’d be hooked.  The Grim Cheaper and I finally sat down to binge-watch it in August and immediately became obsessed, staying up until 3:30 in the morning two days in a row to finish it.  Stranger Things is literally one of the best. television. shows. ever.  It was also responsible for […]



The Los Angeles Filming Locations of “Hocus Pocus”

Oct 31st, 2016 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

It’s finally here, folks!  The day I wait for all year long.  Halloween!  I hope all of my fellow stalkers have a fabulous, spooky and safe holiday!  I figured what better way to celebrate my favorite day than with a post about one of the world’s most beloved Halloween movies, Hocus Pocus.  Last week, my friend Katie detailed the Salem, Massachusetts locations featured in the 1993 flick, so I thought I would write about a few of its L.A. locales.  Yep, that’s right – portions […]



Eastern State Penitentiary

Oct 28th, 2016 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

Prior to traveling anywhere, I read copious amounts about the place I plan on visiting.  Copious amounts, from sources including books, magazines, websites, guides, and blogs.  My favorite travel guides are the Eyewitness Travel books published by DK.  Before my recent trip back east, during which we visited Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Philadelphia, I purchased DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Philadelphia & The Pennsylvania Dutch Country.  As usual, it did not disappoint and chronicled countless sites I was interested in visiting while in the City of […]



The Salem Filming Locations of “Hocus Pocus”

Oct 27th, 2016 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

Today, we have a very special guest post brought to you by my good friend/Hocus Pocus aficionado Katie, who recently took a trip to Salem, Massachusetts to stalk the locations featured in the bewitching (pun intended!) 1993 film.  When she kindly proposed writing a column about her adventure during my Haunted Hollywood postings, I immediately took her up on the offer and I could not be more excited about the result!  So take it away, Katie!

Growing up, Hocus Pocus was one of my absolute favorite […]
