For Rob Zombie’s 2009 sequel, “Halloween II,” various towns in Georgia were used as a composite for the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois. The opening scenes of the film, however, used footage from the first film for Smith’s Grove Sanitarium. The location is a Veteran’s Hospital in North Hills, California. There are quite a number of buildings on site and it can be tricky finding the exact spot used in the film. To locate it, you must first turn onto Puller Rd. Each building has a large number on it. A bit down Puller Rd, you’ll see the building from the film, which is building 4. It can be easily identified by the long wall surrounding the yard in front of it.
LOCATION: 16111 Plummer St, North Hills, CA 91343
The story picks up moments after the first film, even though the two productions took place far across the country from one another. Laurie walks the streets of the town square of Covington, Georgia, which has been seen in dozens of productions, such as “Doctor Sleep,” “Cannonball Run,” “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “The Vampire Diaries” and many more. This shot is from Covington Square, looking toward the courthouse.
LOCATION: 2101 Washington St SW, Covington, GA 30014
The Myers house can also be found in Covington, not far from the town square.
LOCATION: 2166 Conyers St SE, Covington, GA 30014
Sheriff Brackett’s house can be found over in Newborn, Georgia. The house sits far back from the road.
LOCATION: 1981 Broughton Rd, Newborn, GA 30056
Back in Covington, Laurie comes across a new book by Dr. Loomis at a local bookstore.
LOCATION: 1113 Floyd St NE, Covington, GA 30014
The Haddonfield Police Department is actually a courthouse, located in Madison, Georgia.
LOCATION: Morgan County Court House, Madison, GA 30650 (at the corner of Hancock St / Jefferson St)
Last, but not least, we leave you with Rob Zombie’s star paver, located in Covington, Georgia. Sometimes referred to as the “Hollywood of the South,” Covington began their own walk of fame, lining the sidewalks with engraved pavers noting the many stars and productions that have graced the town.
