In October 2016, two friends from Quebec City made a road trip in North America to see the locations of their favorite horror films. The following winter, this video was found on YouTube.
One of the coolest things you can do as a horror fan is visit some of the filming locations seen in the movies you love. Traveling to those locations makes you feel like you’re inside of those fictional worlds; to this day, a trip several years ago to the real-life sets of 1988’s Lady in White is one of my favorite memories. I’ve always wanted to go on a cross-country road trip and visit other locations from films like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street along the way, but alas, such adventures require time and money that are both pretty hard to come by.
So let’s live vicariously through two fans who actually did it!
The Road Trip Project is a 5-minute video documenting the coolest road trip ever: the hardcore horror fans traveled to the filming locations of 15 different horror movies, and they took images of those locations as they appear today. Locales from films such as Jaws, The Blair Witch Project, The Exorcist, Dawn of the Dead, and It Follows were part of the trip, and though it would of course be way cooler to see them all for yourself, we think you’ll dig this virtual road trip adventure.
