Eastern State Penitentiary

Oct 28th, 2016 | By | Category: 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: 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 […]

The Trenton Family Home from “Cujo”

Oct 26th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Cujo is regularly hailed as one of the best cult horror movies of all time.  I never actually saw the 1983 flick until just prior to writing this post, but I came across some information about the main house – or, more accurately, houses – used in it while researching filming locations in Sonoma County in preparation for my recent trip up north.  What I read fascinated me and I became obsessed with tracking the residences down.  Thanks to a major assist from my aunt […]

My Experience at Halloween Horror Nights (Hint – It Was Fabulous!)

Oct 25th, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood is something I have wanted to do forever.  Considering my obsession with Halloween, all things spooky and movie studios, it’s kind of a shock that I had never been.  The rather steep ticket prices – as well as the fact that everyone told me I shouldn’t bother attending unless I was also going to purchase a Front of Line pass – are what deterred me year after year.  When my best friends, Robin and Steffi, announced that they […]

The Filming Locations of “Scream 3”

Oct 24th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As promised on Friday, today’s post is dedicated to the filming locations of Scream 3.  Though the third installment is not my favorite of the franchise, I love anything and everything having to do with Scream and figured what better way to celebrate Haunted Hollywood month than by putting together a massive two-part article detailing all of the locations featured in both the first and second sequels.  (In case you missed my post on Scream 2 locations, you can read it here.)

1. 101 Freeway (West […]

The L.A. Filming Locations of “Scream 2”

Oct 21st, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

“Hello, Sidney.”  Two simple words, spoken by a gravelly-voiced serial killer shrouded by a Father Death mask in one of Scream’s early scenes, and the face of the horror movie genre was changed forever. An empty house and a ringing telephone suddenly had a much more sinister meaning.  Scream, which will be celebrating its twentieth anniversary on December 20th, went on to spawn three sequels, a 2015 television series, and countless imitations.  Though the original film was shot in its entirety in Northern California and […]

The “Shadow of a Doubt” Remake House

Oct 20th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Let’s be honest – remakes are rarely, if ever, good.  Especially if they’re of the made-for-television movie variety.  Despite that fact, when I heard that the house from the 1991 made-for-television remake of Shadow of a Doubt was located right across the street from the pad featured in the 1943 original, I just had to stalk it.  (I blogged about the residence from the original film. located at 904 McDonald Avenue in Santa Rosa, yesterday, for those who are interested.)   As you can see above, […]

The “Shadow of a Doubt” House

Oct 19th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Sitting on a quiet corner on an idyllic street in Santa Rosa is a home with quite a scary movie pedigree.  Not only did the Italianate Victorian-style abode appear in a Hitchcock classic, the 1943 thriller Shadow of a Doubt, but in my favorite horror flick of all time, Scream!  (While the residence has also been credited with bringing about one of the best known horror movie costumes of all time, that information is actually incorrect, as I learned while writing this post.  More on […]

Woodsboro High School from “Scream”

Oct 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Earlier this month, my mom and I flew to Northern California and embarked upon an epic stalking tour of Scream filming locations.  And when I say epic, I mean epic!  We hit up everything from the grocery store where Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) and Tatum Riley (Rose McGowan) shopped (the owner of the market gifted me with a bottle of champagne!) to the warehouse where the sets were built to the hotel where the cast and crew stayed during the shoot.  I don’t think there’s […]

Casey’s House from “Scream 2”

Oct 17th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

“What’s your favorite scary movie?”  So asks Ghostface of Casey Becker (Drew Barrymore) at the beginning of Scream.  Well, if Ghostface asked me that question, my answer would be Scream everyday of the week and twice on Sunday.  I love, love, love that movie!  Though I was not as big a fan of the film’s three sequels, I got on a kick recently of tracking down some of their unknown locales.  The spot I most wanted to find was the gorgeous peaked-roof house where Casey […]
