Thousands Flock to Spots Where the Original 'Halloween' Was Filmed

Playing Houses Made Famous in ‘Halloween’ Are Now Huge Tourist Attractions

The sequel to 1978's "Halloween" is gripping the box office, scaring up more than $77 million. 

As the movie breathes new life into the franchise, fans are still visiting the home where the original was filmed in the late 1970s. 

The original "Halloween" takes place in the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois, but the movie was actually shot in South Pasadena, California. 

Today, "Halloween" fans come from all over the world to visit the area where Michael Myers famously terrorized, often just for a photo.

Many come dressed as the slasher, complete with the mask and knife, to pose in front of what is now an office building.

“It is the most important house, I am obsessed with it," one fan told Inside Edition. 

A few blocks away is the home where Jamie Lee Curtis' character, Laurie Strode, lived. 

In the 1978 film, she sat outside on the front stoop while holding a pumpkin, a sight often recreated by "Halloween" devotees. 

Bianca and Ron have lived in the iconic house more than 30 years. When they purchased the home in 1984, they were unaware of its place in horror history. 

The couple said realtors warned them people may visit the home but never expected nearly the thousands they get each year.
