Insidious film location: the Lambert house: Victoria Park Drive, Midtown Los Angeles
Imaginative low-budget shocker, from writer Leigh Whannell and director James Wan, the team behind Saw.
The Lambert house, where young son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) falls into an unexplained coma, is 4350 Victoria Park Drive, a circular drive off West Pico Boulevard in midtown Los Angeles.
Insidious film location: the family moves house house: South Point View Street, Midtown Los Angeles
When the strange goings-on in the house become all too much, the family moves to 1153 South Point View Street, between Whitworth Drive and Packard Street, also in midtown.
Insidious location: ‘The Further’, the strange limbo: Herald Examiner Building, South Broadway, downtown Los Angeles
‘The Further’ – the strange limbo Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) enters to retrieve their son – is the old Herald Examiner Building, 1111 South Broadway, downtown Los Angeles.
Designed, in 1912, by Julia Morgan, the architect of William Randolph Hearst’s San Simeon estate, the building has been empty, used only as an occasional movie location, since the paper closed, hosting productions including The Usual Suspects, Strange Days, The Cable Guy and End of Days.
