  • Halloween III Road Trip 2019

    It's almost time, kids. The clock is ticking.

    I'm flying down to Louisiana in June of 2019. I'm gonna grab a board member or two and we are going to road trip to California to Santa Mira, California.

    Who else wants to see the Silver Shamrock factory?

    It's more of a road trip than anything else. Don't expect much interest, but it's worth a shot; put some feelers out there.

      If only I lived stateside. I know I'm in the minority but I love Season of the Witch.

        I think a lot of people these days appreciate Season of the Witch. IMO, a lot of the original backlash was the lack of Myers.

        There is nothing concrete about this, but yes. I've been thinking we might try to add other horror locations out west, but it is not entirely my call to make. It's probably three days of driving out west, and we could add a site or two... the hills have eyes... hell, maybe even the Grand Canyon. I don't know.

        Visiting Friday the 13th sites is kind of out the question. Most the people I know here live out west and or south. Most of the F13 movies were filmed in the northeast? I could be wrong.

        One last thing... I may have posted this somewhere else.
        I was watching 'Casino' a couple weeks back when I saw a familiar face. I was like.... "that dude was an android in Halloween III..." I was right, but did not realize it was Dick Warlock. He may have been in another Halloween movie.... played some minor character....

          At least parts of Pt 2 was shot in Connecticut- I'm planning a trip out there in a couple of years with the family, and my other half wants to see where Gilmore Girls was filmed... and one of the locations was used for both.

            With some of these films, it's nearly impossible to go back. Didn't they move the original Myers home from Halloween 1 (I believe Melfetter/Melanie Jarvis from the older boards had this information; I lost her old website info) and the original Sawyer TCM 1 home was moved as well? Friday the 13th part 3; the original barn is a bunch of sticks (if it hasn't fallen already), the water dried up, and the cabin burned down. I'd love to see what part 2's "Haddonfield" hospital looks like now. Bet they employ more than 4 or 5 staff members... (was that not the least staffed hospital in horror movie history?).

            Regardless, I look forward to seeing any horror related sites out there. I did TCM 2... but it was BEFORE the movie was shot there (doesn't really count). The Ward was filmed in my hometown, but that was a shit movie.

                I only know the Paramount films, but I think it's:

                1 - New Jersey
                2 - Connecticut
                3, 4, & 5 - California
                6 - Georgia
                7- Alabama
                8 - Vancouver & NYC (barely)

                The Myers house moved, but it's right up the street from the original location. I believe it's a dentist office now. The Chainsaw house moved to a different city and is now operating as a restaurant.

                I have no idea why I know all this.

                  That original Melanie Jarvis blog is here: http://horrorchic.blogspot.co.uk/2008/10/in-lieu-of-halloween-season.html

                  I think the she also covered the Chainsaw house too.

                    Thank you for posting that. I noticed she hasn't posted anything since 2012. Life moves on.
                    Also, I forgot all about Choko.

                    Anybody know of any horror movies filmed in the southwestern U.S. off the top of their head? I'll research eventually.

                        Should have mentioned they're running some more Camp Crystal Lake tours:
