The Exterminator Filming Locations:
The opening Vietnam scenes were shot at Indian Dunes, the former 200-acre movie and television location just north of Six Flags Magic Mountain that often stood in for Vietnam before ceasing to be used as a location in 1990. This location was often used because it lay within the "30-mile zone" from Hollywood which saved producers the cost of providing transportation and accommodations for the actors and crew. Also, nighttime scenes could be filmed without city lights showing in the background. Sadly, it also has a tragic history, it being the site of the fatal helicopter accident in 1982 during production of "Twilight Zone: The Movie" that caused the death of veteran actor Vic Morrow and two child actors. The last production to use the location was Disney's "The Rocketeer."
We also see several New York locations including Times Square & Battery Park in Manhattan.

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!
Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
