I love to visit movie and tv locations, so I thought I would share some of the places I have visited as well as some of my other adventures!
oh my god the wallace house has not change at all expect for the door
Actually that same door does show up in the first shot of the house when Laurie gets there to babysit. The rest of the movie they switched out the door with the solid one.
your so rightt!i played that scene and they showed it for like a second, the door was open and you clearly can see it, why do you think they changed it?
Just a continuity mistake, I'm sure. I assume they changed it to a solid door so she wouldn't see him coming and he'd slip in a side window.
or because since they did not film on the interior of the house it wouldnt match
lol, people who live in these houses, must get so mad when tourists show up
for those who didnt know Tommy's house is located at 1528 North Orange Grove Avenue and Annie's house right across the street 1536 North Orange Grove Avenue
The actual Myer's house and the neighborhood is South Pasadena. My cousin's house is actually in the movie when Laurie is seen walking from school. We used to always go to the Halloween house as a kid..it was really old and abandoned! It has since been moved from that street to a corner in another part of S. Pasadena. I think it's a Doctor or Dentist's office now actually.Kind of creepy story, but I remember a little girl was actually murdered o my cousin's street back then behind a house. As a little kid back then (this was the early 1980's) we all thought Michael Myers did it! My condolences to whoever it was, though.
The glass door on the Wallace House was added sometime after the film was made. It was a solid door at the time of filming. Only the outside of the house was used, though. The interior scenes were shot in another house. "Halloween" Production designer Tommy Lee Wallace thinks it was another house in the neighborhood, but doesn't remember exactly which one after all these years.
Actually the glass door was there at the time of filming, they did not switch it out for a couple of scenes. I've added a small screenshot to the blog when Laurie is first dropped off at the house. The interior scenes of the Doyle house are likely at the house immediately next door as the backyard exterior is similar to what is seen in the film. The Wallace interiors were shot at the house next to that one.
