Insidious (2010)




Insidious (2010) was filmed at two different Los Angeles homes.

The first house is located in the Victoria Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.  The house was built in 1909.  For this house, the filmmakers set out to find a house that actually looked like it could be haunted.  A scene from the movie L.A. Confidential (1997) was filmed just down the road, where two men are gunned down in their vehicle.

The second house is located less than 3 miles away.  This house was intended to be smaller, suburban, and the complete opposite of the first house.  The interiors of both houses were used, as the low-budget production didn't have the money to build two sets for the film.

  1. The first house does appear as it 'can be haunted!' Great choice! I drove by at night and it really does make you think!! The second location in a suburban neighborhood was a nice choice what the Director was looking for! Its a cute, cozy style home in a quiet neighborhood! Thank you for the input!! Great movie! Can't wait to see Insidious 2 soon!!

  2. Yes, the first house is a perfect place for a haunted house movie! Very spooky looking.

    As for Insidious 2, the new house from that film is a location that was already covered here. You can catch a brief glimpse of it at the beginning of the trailer (they show the back of the house), but it was filmed at the Smith estate where Spider Baby and Silent Scream were filmed.

    Here is a link to that blog post:
