H40: 40 Years of Terror was purely and simply the ultimate Halloween franchise reunion, with numerous panels and epic events throughout the weekend, and it all kicked off with the Horror’s Hallowed Grounds bus tour of many of the filming locations of the Halloween movies.
On a bright and sunny morning in Pasadena, California, on Oct. 12, 2018, we joined a few hundred rabid Halloween fans who met up in front of the Pasadena Convention Center and boarded five different buses for the more than six-hour tour. We were on the fifth bus, with our host (and Horror’s Hallowed Grounds creator) Sean Clark (read our interview here).
Locations visited included the Doyle and Wallace houses from the original Halloween, which are actually across from each other as they are in the film, as well as the Myers House (1978 and 2007), the Strode House (1978 and 2007), Haddonfield Cemetery, Elementary School, and High School, and even the church from The Fog.
We also got to see Lynda’s house and that of Annie and Sheriff Brackett, both of which are located right next the infamous bush where Laurie saw The Shape stalking her in Halloween, as well as the site of Nichol’s Hardware Store, the Moustapha Akkad Memorial Bench, many more iconic landmarks.
