Visit The Original 'Halloween' House In Hollywood
From a former Redditor:
This summer I went to the location of the houses where Jamie and Annie were babysitting in the original Halloween. Very odd. Right off of a main road in Hollywood. And much smaller and close together than they appear in the film. There’s been a little remodeling on the Annie/Lindsay house Very cool to see.
