House II: The Second Story (1987)

The 1987 horror sequel, “House II: The Second Story” was, like the original film, shot primarily in Southern California. This time the setting was a property known as the Stimson House, located near Mt. Saint Mary’s University.

The same house was featured in the film “After Midnight,” as well as such TV series as “Mad Men,” “Pushing Daises,” “The Bionic Woman” and more.

LOCATION: 2421 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90007

The Western scene was filmed at Paramount Ranch. Unfortunately in November 2018, the ranch fell victim to wildfires and nearly every building was burnt to the ground.  However, plans have been announced to rebuild the sets.

Several scenes were also filmed at the Harry P. Leu Gardens.  You have to pay to enter the grounds and the property is bigger than you might expect.  Grabbing a map from the reception area might help you find your way, but if you’re seeking out the “Problem Child 2” locations, you might end up doing a bit more walking than you anticipated.

The Leu House Museum is where Ben prepares for his wedding to Lawanda.
