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 […]

Mission Street from “Little Black Book”

Sep 13th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back in November 2010, a fellow stalker named Clayton wrote a comment on my post about Fair Oaks Pharmacy from Mr. Deeds (which you can read here) alerting me that fave movie Little Black Book and the 1985 classic Back to the Future had also done some filming at the 50s-style soda fountain.  And while he was actually wrong on both counts, his comment led me to the discovery that part of the opening sequence from Little Black Book had been filmed just down the […]

Sidney’s House from “Scream 3”

Oct 29th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I was absolutely desperate to find in time for this year’s Haunted Hollywood posts was the isolated house where Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) lived in Scream 3.  I knew from the flick’s Wikipedia page that the residence was located somewhere in the Topanga area, but other than that, I had very little to go on.  Then, last week, on a whim, I decided to peruse through Malibu Locations, my favorite filming location database, to see if the property was featured on it […]

The Correct “A Nightmare on Elm Street” Bridge

Oct 23rd, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While stalking the Venice Canals (the history of which you can read about on yesterday’s post about Lana Clarkson’s former home) with Mike, from MovieShotsLA, last July, he mentioned that there was some misinformation floating around online about the Venice Canal bridge that appeared in the 1984 horror flick A Nightmare on Elm Street.  Mike explained that every filming location website and book seemed to have a differing opinion as to which of the area’s nine bridges were used in the production and that he […]

The Meiks’s House from “Frailty”

Oct 16th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of my absolute, hands-down, favorite movies of all time is the 2001 thriller Frailty, which just so happens to be actor Bill Paxton’s directorial debut.  And I am apparently in good company with that opinion – according to the Contact Music website, James Cameron, Sam Raimi and Stephen King are also huge fans of the flick, calling it “electrifying”, “the most frightening horror picture I’ve seen since The Shining”, and “edge-of-the-seat entertainment”, respectively.  If you have not yet seen Frailty, I cannot more highly […]

The Beckett House from “Delusion: The Blood Rite”

Oct 10th, 2012 | By | Category: This and That

Way back in February, fellow stalker David, of The Location Scout blog, wrote a comment on my post about the Milbank Mansion, the interior of which was used as the inside of the Finch home in Running with Scissors, informing me that the exterior shots of the Finch residence were filmed at the Beckett house in the West Adams District.  David also let me know that the Beckett house had appeared in quite a few B-movies from the ‘80s, most of them of the horror […]

Katie’s House from “The Ring”

Oct 9th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While doing research on the Malibou Lake residence that stood in for the office of Doctor Grasnik (Jane Alexander) in the thriller The Ring, I came across a page on fave website Washington State Film Locations which stated that the supposed Seattle-area house where Katie (Amber Tamblyn) lived – and died – in the 2002 flick was actually located in Hancock Park.  Well, believe you me, I just about fell off my chair upon learning the information as I had always thought that particular abode […]

The “Psycho” Car Dealership

Oct 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While putting together a list of spooky-type locales to stalk during my Haunted Hollywood month a couple of weeks ago, I decided to peruse through fave book James Dean Died Here: The Locations of America’s Pop Culture Landmarks by Chris Epting for a little inspiration.  And, let me tell you, I just about died of excitement when I saw a blurb about the North-Hollywood-area car dealership that appeared in the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock classic Psycho. In the blurb, Epting mentioned that not only was the […]
