  1. I found the location at the end of the movie where they all run behind a diner and deke shoots the sign that says "Humans here" here are the gps coordinates. 34°06'51.7"N 77°54'03.3"W and also i believe this is the place where they filmed the marina scene. 34°04'39.6"N 77°53'20.0"W its called Carolina Beach Inlet.

  2. You are wrong about the location of the baseball field....I watched it get filmed at the GE employees baseball field in Castle Hayne, NC. It is right across the street from the GE plant. Corner of Castle Hayne Road and Hermitage Road

    2. you are absolutely correct ,the filming location for baseball field was located in Castle Hayne NC, corner of castle hayne rd and hermitage rd across the street from the GE plant, please google map this and look at it closely and compare it to clips of the baseball field scenes and look at the now location from overhead and street view on google maps and you will be amazed . for some reason there is false info that the baseball scene was shot in Leland nc as it is not true.

  3. 2325 Shirley Drive is where the lawn mower scene takes place and boy is hiding behind the scrubs. I almost bought that house this past year.
