Horror Movies Filmed in Your Town.

Ever been watching a movie and realize scenes from it must have been filmed just down the street? Where were you living at the time, what was the scene and the movie?

I grew up in Maryland and remembering driving past the Burkittsville cemetery from the beginning of the Blair Witch all the time.

Later I moved outside of El Paso, Tx where Manos the Hands of Fate was filmed. I dont know how many times I drove over that pass where the family stops and the little girl gets in the front seat with her parents.

Not exactly horror, but Body Heat was filmed in my town years ago.

Another one not quite horror, but certainly a cult movie, Bad Boy Bubby was filmed here in Adelaide, South Australia. Or to be more precise, down near Semaphore. Recently I watched Coffin Rock and a few scenes were also shot here in Adelaide, I recognized the main streets in Town and our crap looking buses

Hellraiser III was filmed in my home town. Several people I know had cameos.
I actually signed up to be an extra and the production assistant called me, but I couldn't attend because I had school exams and work and the shoot they wanted me for was an all nighter from dusk til dawn the next day. Oh, well...

Not exactly in my town, but Laid To Rest was filmed in Annapolis, which is pretty damn close to me. Then there's those Fear of Clowns movies that were filmed in Glen Burnie and the surrounding areas. The director, Kevin Kangas, has a comic book shop right down the street from me.

Not horror, but a few scenes in the Replacements were filmed at my High School and Ravens stadium. Also there's an exterior shot in John Water's Polyester that is within walking distance of me.

"Orca" was shot within 10-20 minutes from my house, I guess that counts.

The original My Bloody Valentine was filmed in a town over from the one I grew up in... about 10 minutes down the highway.

What a claim to fame

While horror flicks like Blair Witch, Chainsaw Sally and a number of others were filmed in my STATE, some closer than other, the closest things that have ever been shot in my actual area (outside of the Homicide TV series which was shooting around here all the time; when I used to cut lawns with my uncle we did a yard at the last minute because they were coming to shoot in their yard ) were Enemy of the State and Live Free or Die Hard. Both of these were shot withing 5-10 minutes of my house and are both big talking points for people around these parts. If only I had a dollar for every time someone said "dude, Enemy of the State was shot there!" while driving by the industrial park, I'd be typing this message from my personal island in the Bahamas

I used to live in Poughkeepsie NY, although I don't know if The Poughkeepsie Tapes was actually filmed there...

Here in San Diego, the one that comes to mind is Phantasm. The scenes in the town, where Mike is wandering the streets when he sees the Tall Man in front of Reggie's Ice Cream was filmed in Julian, a small village just northeast of San Diego

Mr. Deeds (oh yes, it's horror). Zombie's Halloween 2 had scenes shot here. The original I Spit On Your Grave was filmed two towns over.

Frankenhooker was filmed near where I used to live in NJ.

Otherwise here in Vegas:

Las Vegas Bloodbath
Las Vegas Serial Killer (man, does this movie suck)
Leprechaun 3

That's all I could remember, I'm sure I'm missing a few though.

Although the bulk of it was filmed down in Massachusetts, a good chunk of the second unit photography for Martin Scorcese's SHUTTER ISLAND was filmed on Mount Desert Island, Maine, where I grew up.

Bits of PET SEMATARY were also shot there.
