Halloween 5: The Revenge Of Michael Myers (1989)

The 1988 sequel “Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers” was filmed in Utah. The Carruthers house, which also appeared in the previous installment, “Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers,” can be found in Salt Lake City.

LOCATION: 509 3rd Ave, Salt Lake City, UT 84103

Over in the town of Midvale, you’ll find Vincent Drug, which served as the exterior of the drug store.  Vincent Drug has long since closed, but the signage and decor largely remain in tact.  The trees out front have grown considerably since filming took place, so it’s a bit difficult to see from across the street. The same location was also featured in “Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers,” “The Sandlot” and the Stephen King mini-series “The Stand.”

Halloween (1978)

John Carpenter’s original 1978, classic horror film, “Halloween,” is one of those films that tends to inspire people to seek out it’s filming locations.  Nearly everything from the film can still be seen today, much of it within a small radius of one another.  These locations have been heavily documented over the years, but that won’t stop us from taking a look at some of the most iconic spots from the film.

Laurie Strode, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, lives at this house, supposedly located in Haddonfield, Illinois, but actually filmed in South Pasadena, California.

Another view of the house, from the corner of Oxley St and Fairview Ave.  The owners of the house are quite welcoming to fans of the film, which is always refreshing to see, even leaving Halloween pumpkins on their front porch year round.

Annie yells “Hey jerk, speed kills!” at the car, when it hits it’s breaks.  The camera in this shot is on the same street, now facing the opposite direction, towards Meredian Ave.  The houses from a couple very different kinds of films, “Liar Liar” and “Space Jam,” were shot on this same block.  John Carpenter would himself return to the same neighborhood for his 1983 Stephen King adaptation, “Christine.”

LOCATION: 1019 Montrose Ave, South Pasadena, CA 91030

The Michael Meyers house was originally located at 707 Meridian Ave, South Pasadena, CA 91030.  Since then, some apartments have been built in it’s place.  The original house, however, was spared from demolition at the last minute in 1987.  A South Pasadena resident, recognizing the historical importance of the home and realizing it was about the be demolished, purchased it for a mere $1, with the promise to relocate the house and keep it in tact.  It wasn’t moved very far away, just over on Mission Street, near some train tracks.  Later recognizing that the home had historical significance, the city of South Pasadena would go on to designate the home as a California landmark.  Many iconic movie locations have been demolished over the years, so it’s always nice to hear of stories where one was not only spared, but preserved and honored.  While fans of the film are encouraged to visit the house, it is currently occupied by a local business, who simply asks visitors to keep to the driveway area and refrain from attempting to go up on the porch or inside.
