My Haunted Hollywood backlog is getting ridiculous! Currently, I have more than 50 already-stalked spooky locations compiled – and only about 20 or so days each year to blog about them. Regardless, I keep compiling more – and I love every minute of it! Why can’t all year be Halloween? Last October, fellow stalker Chas, of the It’s Filmed There website, contributed to my ever-growing list by texting to let me know about a horror movie house he thought I might be interested in – […]

I’ve ventured down a deep, dark rabbit hole today, friends. I should back up and explain from the beginning. Last night, the Grim Cheaper and I watched The Exorcist for the first time. I had come across images of the stately brick house and adjacent towering staircase featured in the iconic 1973 horror flick while researching filming locations in the D.C.-area prior to our September trip and found them to be particularly haunting. Despite the fact that I had never seen The Exorcist and knew […]
Ah, how I love creepy old houses. Horror flicks? Not so much. Which is strange, I know, being that I am such a fan of Halloween, all things scary, and movies in general. I do absolutely love horror films that are done well, though (hello, Scream!), but find that the vast majority are pretty pointless (Phantasm, anyone?). That being said, I will never stop stalking locations from them. A couple of months ago, I came across this screen capture of a fabulously spooky old house […]
Don’t forget to read my latest Los Angeles magazine article! It’s my first Haunted Hollywood post of the season, about the Hanging Tree from Phantasm – one of the prettiest locations I have ever stalked!
And BIG NEWS that I have been waiting to share. I recently taped a segment about Beverly Hills, 90210 filming locations for HLN. It is going to be airing tomorrow, Friday, October 2nd, between 10 and 10:30 a.m. on The Daily Share. Be sure to tune in! For those who don’t […]
Don’t forget to read today’s Los Angeles magazine post – about the Fortuneteller’s house from Phantasm. My posts typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.
When I was a little girl, my grandma would regularly take me out for an afterschool treat at our local ice cream parlor. I cherished those trips, and now the memories of them, and was absolutely devastated when the parlor closed down about 15 years ago only to be replaced by a gift store. So when I came across this Freddy in Space posting about an old time ice cream shop still in operation – one that is a filming location, no less – I […]
I am reaching deep into my stalking vault for today’s location. I visited the Harbor Steps Apartments from The Ring during a trip to Seattle well over four years ago – shortly after being caught in a torrential downpour, which explains my hat in the above photograph – but somehow failed to blog about them. Since the building’s appearance in the 2002 thriller was decidedly macabre, I figured what better time to write about it than during my annual Haunted Hollywood postings. So here goes!
While I am admittedly not a fan of MacArthur Park, there is a property situated on the border of it that I would absolutely LOVE to live in – The American Cement Building. Mike from, MovieShotsLA, pointed out the dramatically stunning structure many moons ago during one of our very first stalks together and I have been obsessed with it ever since. And while Mike also informed me that the edifice had appeared in the 2000 horror flick Scream 3, for some reason I never […]
NOTE – This blog was supposed to post yesterday, but somehow did not, so it looks like I am a day late and a dollar short. Sorry about that! I would like to start off by wishing my fellow stalkers a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I hope all of you have a fabulously spook-filled day. And now, on with the post! Way back in July 2012, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I embarked upon a stalking adventure in and around the Venice Beach area. While there, […]
One locale that I came across (thanks to an article on Amoeblog) while doing research for my 2012 Haunted Hollywood posts was the former Cobb Estate in Altadena, the gates of which appeared in the 1979 cult horror film Phantasm. And while I stalked the location shortly thereafter, for whatever reason I never got around to blogging about it last October. I actually completely forgot about the site, in fact, until I sat down to write my recent post on Angeles Abbey Memorial Park, which […]
