“Christmas with the Kranks” Studio Locations

Dec 23rd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Since I have been on such a Christmas with the Kranks kick as of late, I thought I’d finish out this year’s Yuletide posts by blogging about the movie’s studio locations.  The 2004 comedy was unusual in that it utilized the backlots of not one, not two, but three different L.A.-area studios!

The main backlot set featured in Christmas with the Kranks was the Hemlock Street neighborhood at the now defunct Downey Studios, formerly located at 12214 Lakewood Boulevard in Downey.  The residential complex, which took […]



Westside Pavilion from “Christmas with the Kranks”

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

Some cities know how to do Christmas right.  Sadly, Palm Springs is not one of them.  As I mentioned last year, the desert just seems to be lacking when it comes to Christmas décor.  Yes, there are lights and garland strung in certain sections of our local mall and colorful wreaths hung from a few select street lights, but overall the Coachella Valley doesn’t really have a holiday feel.  So much so that two years ago, the Grim Cheaper and I decided to make an […]



Du-par’s Restaurant and Bakery from “Christmas with the Kranks”

I don’t know what it is about Christmas movies, but I cannot watch them without crying.  Even the not-so-great ones make me bawl.  Case in point – the 2004 comedy Christmas with the Kranks.  While admittedly not one of the best Yuletide films, the Grim Cheaper and I watch it each year and I cry every.single.time.  After our recent annual watch, I decided to attempt to track down some of the flick’s unknown locales.  The spot at the top of my list was the Irish […]



The Cooper House from “Forever Young”

May 15th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s locale is a bit of a long time coming.  In my early March post about the bungalow where Daniel McCormick (Mel Gibson) lived in Forever Young, I mentioned that I had stalked a different house from the 1992 movie – the one where Claire Cooper (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her son, Nat (Elijah Wood), lived – in my early stalking days.  I found the location thanks to Scott’s L.A. Audio Tour of Pasadena CD, but because this was long before I had a blog, […]



Laurie Strode’s House from “Halloween”

Oct 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

A couple of months ago, fellow stalker Mikey, from the Mike the Fanboy website, clued me into an INCREDIBLY cool little bit of Haunted Hollywood stalking information that I had not been previously aware of.  Apparently, the real life owners of the home that stood in for the Strode residence in the 1978 classic horror film Halloween are so extremely stalker-friendly that they provide a supply of plastic pumpkins on their front porch all year long for fans of the movie to pose with in […]



More Halloween!

Oct 24th, 2008 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

Last year, during our annual Haunted Halloween tour, I dragged my boyfriend to the two houses where Jamie Lee Curtis and her friend babysit in the movie Halloween. The final action sequence in the movie takes place at these two houses, which are located across the street from each other. Even though I had never seen the movie Halloween, being that it was the season, I just had to stalk it. 🙂 I seriously need to rent this movie!

Halloween

Oct 9th, 2008 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

Hi, my name is Lindsay Blake and I have never seen the movie Halloween. I know, I know – it’s like sacrilege or something, especially since Halloween is my favorite holiday. I’ve also never seen any of the Friday, the 13th movies. But I’ve always been kind of a scaredy cat, so as a teenager I was way too afraid to watch any sort of horror flick. I fully intend to rent and finally watch them this Halloween season, though. In the meantime, even though […]
