The Prowler (1981)

For The Prowler (1981), Cape May, New Jersey served as the town of Avalon Bay.


Inn Of Cape May

The dance (both in the prologue and in 1981) was filmed at the Inn Of Cape May.   The Atlantic Ocean is right across the street.  You get a good look at the exterior during the prologue in one of the first shots (seen above), following the archive war footage and dear john letter.

Southern Mansion

The dormitory scenes (where the shower scene and memorable final jump scare occurs) were filmed at a bed and breakfast called the Southern Mansion.  Reportedly haunted, it was the focus of a season six episode of Ghost Hunters called "Touched By Evil".

Emlen Physick Estate

Major Chatham's house, where the final showdown takes place, is the Emlen Physick Estate. The estate is a Victorian house museum, which offers tours. Like with the Southern Mansion, this house has its fair share of reported paranormal activity.
