On a little info on TBW. I used to work for the park and have been to the house that the movie was filmed in. It was filmed in several different
parks. Other then the city sign and cemetary, very little actually in Burkittsville.
The house they used sits next to the grounds of an abandoned military para troop station. The house was originally a Colonels house or something.
Though it looks isolated, it only sits about 50 yards from the road. It has an old meat shack and well house in the back. They had to cover up grafiti
to make it look rustic. And they left a lot of the symbols in stuff in there after filming. Teh park regretted ever letting them film there by the
amount of nightly fans trooping in there. The house is actually tan, with the standard tan stucco covering that you see on homes. It must of been a
pretty nice house at one point.
The military base itself actually had far more fascinating local lore then TBW. There were wonderful ATS style rumors about it. It had been shut down
for 50 years, grass was tall. The jumping towers left, the offices left. But people would sneak in there and find brand new doors below ground. Though
completely abandoned, all sorts of machinery noise was heard from it. One local told me that netting went up one summer and was left up for 3 months
that you couldn't see in at all. There was all kinds of machinery noise, then the netting came down and it looked exactly the same. All the locals
swore that it was a secret missle base, or something was going on there. Way too much noise heard for an abandoned military base. One firefighter
reported trying to steal the steel door in the basement, spent hours, it was 6 inches thick. Came back the next night to find it fixed. Though rarely
was military ever seen in there.
Other rumors were that if you got into the underground offices, there were recent documents hung on the walls.
I drove past there last year, all the jumping towers and offices were torn down. So if anything was there, it is gone now. I had always wanted to
sneak in an see what was going on there.
