Locations Notes

Rewind the locations where they filmed the 1987 Horror / Occult movie starring Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton

Locations Manager(s): George Herthel

Near Dark Filming Locations:

The movie was originally to be shot on location in Oklahoma, but after severe flooding, production designers called the producers just before they were about to fly out there and cancelled. Consequently it was moved to Coolidge, Florence and Casa Grande, Arizona with some additional work in Los Angeles. Despite being set in the summer, it was filmed in late autumn and temperatures were very cold.

The semi blew up on Coolidge Ave and Main Street in Coolidge az, and bales of cotton were seen on the back roads- Kenworthy Road or Vah Ki Inn. [Thanks to Jeff]

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.
