Grosse Pointe Blank (1997) is set in Michigan, but it was clearly filmed primarily in the Los Angeles area.  The high school in the film is John Marshall High School, a very recognizable Los Angeles high school that has been featured in countless films.  

The Newberry home in the film, where the climactic shootout between John Cusack and Dan Aykroyd takes place, is a location that has been covered previous in this blog both here and here.  It is the Chateau Bradbury Estate, and it was also featured in Ghoulies IV (1994), Confessions Of Sorority Girls (1994), and The Stray (2000), as well as episodes of Bones (2005) and Tales From The Crypt (1989).  Check out the previous blog posts for screencaps from the Estate's other on-screen appearances.

  1. The High School is actually Grosse Pointe Academy -- I live two blocks from it.
