the other night, i decided to throw on halloween I and II. it’s been ages, and sometimes i just need it. when i was a kid, my mother always had the halloween movies on, and my sister and i loved them. we must have watched them 93879847947 times. in fact, i’m sure if you got us together in one room, between quotes from young frankenstein, the wedding singer, overboard, drop dead fred and halloween, you would want to shoot us. we’re ridiculous.
back to the point of the post… so i was looking at wikipedia info about the movie and its filming locations. i had remembered that the first two were filmed in california, but i wasn’t sure about 4, 5, and 6. so i googled it and found out that it was filmed on location in salt lake city. the more i googled address’s, the more astonished that i became. three of the main houses used in the film are literally blocks away from one of my best friends houses! …where i stay, every time i’m there! i couldn’t believe it.
when i was doing the street view, i only recognized two places that I KNOW i have in fact driven past with bee. so crazy… i went to salt lake city THREE TIMES last year and i didn’t know this. had i known this, i would have pictures of me and these locations. now i can’t wait to go back (well, even more than usual). HALLOWEEN TOUR!
so i started looking up even more stuff, and apparently the house that was used in the (AWFUL/HORRIBLE/WILL NEVER WATCH AGAIN) rob zombie remake of halloween, was the same house that the chase family lived in on “my so called life”. it’s in pasadena, and also awaiting my arrival. i SO need one of those angela/brian pictures at night overlooking the street.
