The L.A. Locations Where Famous Horror Films Were Shot

Horror movies are rarely set in Los Angeles, preferring to use fake city names like Springwood and Cuesta Verde, and yet the vast majority of them are filmed within a hundred miles of Hollywood.

Making viewers believe that they’re seeing a location from Anywhere, U.S.A. is all part of movie magic, but when you discover the real life locations scattered around the City of Angels Google maps replaces magic.

Take a snapshot tour with LA Weekly as they reveal The L.A. Spots Where Your Favorite Horror Movies Were Filmed, including this famous bridge from the 80s classic The Lost Boys. 

With a little storytelling, and an audience's willingness to believe, these everyday locales across Los Angeles transport the viewers to another place and time, but isn't it surprising how mundane most of these locations are in real life?!
