Just for Halloween, Dearly Departed Tours will take you on an escorted journey through spooky film madness, with a Halloween tour devoted to the famous horror film locations around Hollywood and Pasadena.

  • See locations from Halloween (1978), such as the Strode house, the HEDGE, the "speed kills!" street, and the famous Finale street. You thought it was Haddonfield, Illinois, but this horror film classic was mostly filmed in South Pasadena, CA!
  • Experience the horror of films like Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), Christine (1983), Scream 2 (1997), Michael Jackson's Thriller (1982), Ed Wood (1994), A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), and more!
  • You'll also see home where "Dracula"- Bela Lugosi died in real life and receive an actual copy of his death certificate!

Your guide will be decked out in Michael Myers gear, and will pose with you at several of the locations.  Enjoy the horror in on our Movie Theater on Wheels ®!

Please keep in mind, this tour is devoted to horror films only. They are scattered about town, so we've done our best to make this tour as geographically timely as possible.
