Charleston

Halloween (2018)

As Halloween (1978) is my favorite movie, and I had an extremely high anticipation for the new 2018 film and couldn't wait to get to the new locations.  The current pics are from my visit in May 2018, well before the trailer was released, so there was no opportunity to screen match beforehand. 

EDIT: Now that the film is released, I am posting more pics as I am able to find matching screenshots.

One of the first shots in the original trailer was in front of this house at 19 Stocker Drive in Charleston, South Carolina.


Next door to that house is Karen Strode’s house at 21 Stocker Drive. You can see they added a bay window for the long shots, but not the close up.


A homeowner on the street was kind enough to share a few behind the scenes shots that I matched up to some screen caps from the trailer. There are also a couple of shots of the cupboard made so the camera can get an ‘inside’ shot.

That same homeowner also shared these behind the scenes pics of the house as well as a bedroom set that didn’t appear in the final film.

The gas station is at 1256 Yeamans Hall Road in Hanahan, South Carolina.

A few more gas station shots taken from a very bad copy while we wait for the blu-ray release. :)

“We’re from Haddonfield, can’t be prouder, still can’t hear us, we’ll yell a little louder!” Here is a shot from outside of the school that appears in commercials but not the finished film. This is located at 5000 Lackawanna Blvd in North Charleston.

The football field where Allyson and Laurie talk is the Attaway-Heinsohn Field on East Montague Avenue in North Charleston.

Vicky babysits Julien at this house is at 40 Fenwick Drive in Charleston, SC.

There are a few scenes that appear in the backyard of the house as well...

The houses in the reverse shots are located at 41 and 43 Fenwick Drive.

Here are some more shots with screencaps from a very bad copy while we wait for the official bluray release.

The kids Laurie tells to run are in front of the house at 340 President Street in Charleston.

This shot appears to be in front of 336 President Street.

In the second trailer, we get a longer sequence of two children bumping into Michael in front of 330 President Street, which is essentially the “Halloween II” scene for this film....

Michael turns and starts walking to the carport of Gina’s house...

He continues walking through the carport...

To this shed.... Notice the ladder and lawnmower haven't moved!

Here is a shot through the window of the house towards the shed...

Michael exits the house....

And begins to walk down the street...

He walks to this house at 338 President Street, which is Andrea’s house in the film...


After the dance, Alyson & Oscar walk through this intersection at President and Huger Street. <Photo credit: Chad Weaver>

Oscar and Allyson cut through the backyard of Mr. Elrod’s house, located on 478 Huger Street. At the time of my visit, I didn’t go into the backyard, but here is the front of the house.

After discovering Oscar on the gate, Alyson runs down the street to the blue house next door at 490 Huger Street.

She finally gets a neighbor to turn their light on at 500 Huger Street. <photo credit: Chad Weaver>

The area where Michael is hit by a car is next to the field near the corner of Lancaster and Monitor Street. <photo credit: Chad Weaver>

One location I did not visit what I believe is Smiths Grove, which is actually the Military Magnet Academy at 2950 Carner Avenue in North Charleston. The production narrowed the windows to make it look more like an actual institution. <photo credit: Matthew Blackert>

Another location that I was not able to visit, and likely will not be able to as it is on private land, is the Laurie Strode's home, located in a rural area of North Charleston. The coordinates for this house are 32.950943, -80.086118.

The gate to the compound was around the corner on Collins Road.

I was also able to locate the cemetery used in the film. LOVE the filmmakers recreated the Sinclair tombstone from the original film.  This is the Magnolia Cemetery Trust at 70 Cunnington Avenue in Charleston.

I don’t have any screenshots, but the convenience store where Officer Hawkins is playing pinball is located at 4498 Durant Avenue in North Charleston.


Another spot that I wasn’t able to get to is where the kids are walking to school and one of them blows up a pumpkin, located near 4654 O'Hear Ave in Charleston. <photo credit: Chad Weaver>

The restaurant the Strode’s eat at is Burtons Grill located at 1875 US-17 in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina.

It only makes a VERY brief appearance but I located the motel at the Siesta Motor Lodge at 4044 Rivers Avenue in North Charleston. (photo credit Chad Weaver)
