US Map of horror movies location

US MAP / EUROPE MAP 

How well do you know your horror movie locations? Well, here is a map to test it. We know how you guys enjoy all these maps and chart on the internet, so we made a one just for you!

Around 250 horror movies (and horror-themed thrillers) for 50 States plus Washington D.C., and some dedicated work from Andrew. The underlines country represents the ones pictured in the United States map.

IMPORTANT: The map represents where the stories take place in the movies, not where the actual filming locations were. Nowadays, most horror movies are filmed in California, but the setting could be totally different. For example, Halloween was filmed outside of Los Angeles but the movie is set in Illinois.

      It means that there are some pictures of these movies on the map itself.
      *hard to explain actually…does that even make more sense?*

      What if it was, instead, a social experiment and we purposely misspelled Tennessee to see how many people actually comments on spelling mistakes…??

      Yes, but the map shows where movies “happened in the story”, not where they were filmed.

    “Jaws” was filmed in Massachusetts, but it’s meant to take place in New York. (Long Island)

    Was Black Cadillac really filmed in Wisconsin? I know that’s where the movie is suppose to take place, but the scenes of the movie don’t even resemble anywhere that I have ever seen from Wisconsin.
