Scream (1996)

The horror genre was bleeding out before Scream came along.  The franchises were fatigued and if a film wasn’t going straight to video, its box office was pretty dismal.   Kevin Williamson’s slasher/mystery breathed new life with its self-aware characters spewing hip dialogue while referencing the classics.  And Drew Barrymore’s wig is more horrorfying than Jamie Lee Curtis’ Halloween II wig.

Scream was filmed in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Glen Ellen and Tomales, CA 

Unfortunately the houses were located on farms or vineyards so getting up close was not possible.  I did my best from the road.

Okay, it's actually the gate to Sidney's House.  This was the best I could get.

Still Need To Visit: 

Casey Becker's House


  1. Casey Becker's house is at 7420 Sonoma Mountain Road, Glen Ellen, CA

    It's not close to the road but there are photos as the house sold this year.

  2. Thanks for the info, Paul! As always :)

  3. They had wanted to shoot this at a real high school in Santa Rosa but were denied, hence the "No Thanks Whatsoever to the Sonoma County School District" note in the end credits.

    1. Yeah, I remember reading that. Their loss.
