    Alright, a few more pics from my travels. Guess 2 from the previous set is still unsolved, so it is now Guess 1 of this set (hint: it is located across the street from the People Under The Stairs house and next door to the Sorority House Massacre II house).

    No, but good guess. I never thought about those looking like the Exorcist stairs! Sadly, I've never made it there while in D.C.

    #5 might be a tough one, because it's only featured in one scene of the movie. But a clue: it's an Italian zombie movie! And it's walking distance from #3.

    4 is Fleetwood Mac - Big Love.

    It's also Hell Night.

    Belated response, but correct!

    Any guesses on the rest? #3 was just released on blu-ray (and #2 was released on blu-ray a couple months ago from the same label).

    I think 2 is Creepshow 2

    1 looks like Sorority House Massacre II/Evil Toons house

    Creepshow 2 is correct, that is where "The Raft" segment was filmed.

    Evil Toons is also correct, but the old mansion in question is actually next door to the Sorority House Massacre II house (and across the street from the People Under The Stairs house). It has been used in tons of movies, but a few of it's genre appearances include Twice Dead, The Attic Expeditions, Mirror Mirror III, and many others. The interiors were used for several locations in Rob Zombie's Halloween, including the Myers and Strode houses. It also makes brief appearances in The Convent and The Immortalizer, and was most recently the primary location for Mike Mills' 20th Century Women.

    The mansion from Frightmare is located on the same little street as this cluster of B-movie mansions, just a few houses down from the People Under The Stairs house. I saw it when I was there (it's beautiful and hard to miss), but didn't realize it had been used as a movie location at the time so I didn't take pictures. I'll have to go back some day!

    #3 is Madhouse.

    Is #5 City of the Living Dead?

    Correct, both filmed in Savannah, GA. In fact, both locations pictured are walking distance from each other. The famous bench scene from Forrest Gump was also filmed a short walk away from these two.

    Wow, good stuff! Like the lesser known choices and that it's not the usual Halloween / Nightmare On Elm Street locales. I've been to the Burnt Offerings mansion and the lighthouse / Stevie Wayne's house from The Fog, both near San Francisco.

    I used to have a blog called The Location Scout where I'd find these on Google maps, but I abandoned it years ago. But since then, I've been traveling a lot and visiting a lot of these places. I really need to do a new blog with the pictures I've taken, as I have well over a hundred stockpiled.

    In fact, I just got back from a trip down the east coast two weeks ago. I went back to a lot of locations I've already been, but did manage to get a few new horror ones, including the nightclub from Heart Of Midnight, the Tybee Post Theater from The Slayer, and a few of the houses from Blumhouse's upcoming Halloween sequel.

    Thanks CPT HOOK :) I'm glad you like it. Like you say, everyone knows where the Halloween locations are and Psycho, Texas Chainsaw etc. But not everyone knows where the house from The Other is located, or the Cannibal Apocalypse locations for example. That's the aim of my blog to find the really hard to find ones. Having said that, I will add all the famous Horror films at some stage but am focusing on the lesser known Horror movies for now. I'm currently researching movies like Graduation Day, The Visitor, Sole Survivor, Warning Sign and all the famous Fulci films. Hopefully will have them added soon. Looking forward to seeing your blog up and running again one day soon :)
