Horror Film Locations That You Can Actually Visit
Even though Halloween is over, we are still enthralled with horror films. Maybe it's because we live in such a spooky state, who knows? If you like to be scared, and you're up for a road trip, then check out the 15 horror film locations that you can actually visit, from the folks at Orbitz. Some really scary movies were filmed at these places, and yes, I'd love visit every single one of them! Some of my favorites are below, but be sure to check out the whole list at Orbitz.
- Mercer-Williams House, Savannah, Georgia. From 1997's 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'
- Oak Alley Plantation, Vacherie, Louisiana. 'Interview With the Vampire', and 'Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte' were both filmed here. And I heard a rumor that part of 'Gone With The Wind' was also filmed at this gorgeous location.
- St Teresa Church, Potter Schoolhouse, Bodega Bay, California. Used in the classic horror film 'The Birds'
- Brewster Apartments, 2800 N Pine Grove Ave., Chicago. 1988's 'Child's Play' was filmed here
- Prospect Street NW, just below 36th Street, Georgetown, Washington, DC. The famous steps from 'The Exorcist'
- Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor, Maine. The 'cemetery' from Stephen King's 'Pet Sematary'
- Seneca Creek State Park, Gaithersburg, Maryland. 'The Blair Witch Project' used this place for their 'Black Hills Forest'
- Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood, Oregon. Stephen King's 'The Shining' was inspired by the Overlook Hotel in Colorado, but this place was used for the exterior shots. And it was really spooky!
- The Dakota, New York City. 1968's 'Rosemary's Baby' made this a horror fan destination. And even more scary, John Lennon was killed in the archway of the building in 1980.
