  1. Wow, most everything looks pretty much the same except the fortune teller's house, but it looks like maybe there's some work going on. And the background scenery to the Dunsmuir estate looks different, in both Phantasm and A View To A Kill it looked like maybe there were hills behind it, or at least much taller trees. Maybe it's just the angle. The landscape looked nicer back then though, I think the world was just prettier in the 80's. The Pearson House still looked pretty nice whenever you took that picture, on the outside at least, I can't believe it was torn down.

    1. I bet a softy bought it an couldn't handle seeing closets the Tall Man could be lurking behind.

  2. The red planet I think is at a nearby dam/reservoir based on a behind the scenes video on youtube.

  3. I am sure you know that Dunsmuir was also the location for the horror film Burnt Offerings with Karen Black.

    1. I just caught that and never knew. I love both movies
