This movie was truly a dream come true as I thought another Halloween sequel was out of the question, especially after the Myers-less last entry. Though nothing can hold up to the original, the creators of Halloween 4 crafted a great film that capture a lot of the spirit and new fun to the series. Plus, Dr. Loomis is back, fans couldn't ask for anything more. And once that theme song kicked in five minutes into the film, I about peed my pants!
The first of the new trilogy to be shot in the Salt Lake City area, I visited a few locations while on a trip to the Sundance Film Festival. First up is the Ridgemont Sanitarium, located at 400 East Capital Park Avenue in Salt Lake City.
Next is a street shot with the date and holiday title that leads to the Carruthers house, located at 509 3rd Street in Salt Lake City.
The school has had continual renovations, but here are a couple spots that were still identical at the time of my visit. The interior shot is courtesy of set-jetter Ryan who got inside the school for a great shot. The school is located at 1300 East 700 South in Salt Lake City
