Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out (1989)


Before last year, my familiarity with the Silent Night, Deadly Night series was only with the first two films.   After deciding to research and visit filming locations for Part 2, in particular the Garbage Day scene, I thought I should check out the whole series.   The original was shot in Utah, the rest in Southern California, so here you go...
      Silent Night Deadly Night
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 2
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker

I only have been able to get to a couple locations for this film so far.   First up is the sign for Piru & Lake Piru where Ricky hitches a ride....

The house is right outside of Piru and has been used in other productions, most recently for the tv series Justified....

Next to the property is this small house seen in the film...

UPDATE February 2015:   Thanks to Mr. Moseley, I was able to track down a couple more locations.  First up is the apartment complex...
