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 […]



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 […]



Bette Davis’ House from “Feud”

Sep 29th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

My favorite Big Little Lies quote belongs to Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), who, in response to Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman) advising her to let something go, quips, “I love my grudges.  I tend to them like little pets.”  A woman after my own heart, I swear!  Oh yes, I am a definite grudge-holder.  So I really should have loved Ryan Murphy’s 2017 anthology series Feud, the first season of which detailed the longtime rivalry between actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford (played by Susan […]



The “Mama’s Family” Houses

Aug 4th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have dreamed of writing this post for so long!  One of the locations I get asked about the most (I literally get emails and comments about it all the time!) is the house that portrayed Thelma Harper’s (Vicki Lawrence) residence during the first two seasons of Mama’s Family.  For those who aren’t familiar with the series and its locales, three different dwellings were actually used to represent the Harper family home throughout the show’s six-year run.  Two of them have long been well-documented online.  […]



The Campbell House from “Soap”

Aug 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Something must be in the water, because this has been the most fortuitous week I’ve ever had when it comes to stalking.  Over the course of the past few days, not only have three of my most-wanted locations been found, but I was even granted access to the interior of one and, remarkably, it still looks exactly the same despite the fact that 27 years have passed since filming took place!  A post on that spot is coming soon.  Today though, I’m covering the Campbell […]



Carrie and Big’s Penthouse from the “Sex and the City” Movie

Jul 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I know I am in the minority when I say that I like the 2008 Sex and the City movie.  Was it the greatest flick ever?  No.  But I did enjoy it.  Seeing it was like being with old friends again, friends I’d missed ever since the HBO television series went off the air in early 2004.  The more I watch it, the more it grows on me.  Though, again, I know I am in the minority.  One aspect of the movie that audiences did […]



Guasti Villa from "Veep"

May 5th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

It’s no secret how much I hate incorrect filming location information.  But sometimes errant info can lead to good things.  Case in point – back in 2012, an article was published about the Los Angeles locales featured in The Artist.  One of the sites detailed was Guasti Villa, aka Busby Berkeley’s former Jefferson Park mansion, which was said to have masked as the home of Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo) in the flick.  (I cannot for the life of me remember what publication featured the article, […]



Jane’s House from “Big Little Lies”

Mar 29th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I am extremely biased when it comes to my former stomping ground of Pasadena, where I lived for close to 15 years.  Though I’ve heard on more than one occasion from L.A. denizens that the city is too suburban and too far removed from the hustle and bustle of urban life, I think it is one of the best places in the world and miss it so much at times it almost breaks my heart.  So whenever I hear of a movie or TV show […]
