Carrie (1976) new locations

Check out the all new CARRIE page at!

For a previous post on Carrie, click here to see the school gymnasium and the pig farm from the movie.

While the majority of the high school was shot in Hermosa Beach, the outside field was up in a Pacific Palisades school, which many films use.   This area was seen extensively when gym teacher, Betty Buckley, forced the girls to detention on the field and when Amy Irving first started to talk to her boyfriend, William Katt, by the bleachers...

Some screenshots...

Carrie's house was located in Santa Paula, California, but is no longer there, just an empty lot.  The other exterior scene shot in the town was Cameron Depalma taunting Sissy Spacek with his bike (Creepy Carrie, Creepy Carrie, ha ha!).    Not quite worth the drive up there.

Wipe that smirk off your face, Norma...


  1. You're out of the prom, Hargensen.

  2. Alright, show's over... keep going! One two one two!

  3. This is so great, thanks so much for these locations! Carrie is my favorite movie. :)

  4. Great Job. Very cool.

  5. I think you have the wrong Sue Snell house. Take a good look at the architectural structure of both houses and you'll see they don't match exactly. At first glance I thought yep that's it. But the more I started comparing the two the more they didn't line up. I found a house in Glendale that looks like the Sue Snell house and that's why I am doing comparisons on photos. Great web site!

  6. I did recognize some parts of the house are different, but did match up the bricks, but let's see the Glendale possibility.

  7. I thought they also filmed a scene in Tucson at the old Jimmy Dean slaughter house?

    1. It's similar but the one in Tucson has cows painted on the side. When I first saw it though I thought the same thing you did.

  8. you forgot about the beginning scene where the girl's are in the locker room showers. That was filmed in the Santa Paula High School girl's gym.

  9. I play hoops there every tuesday at the gym and didn't even realize it til today!
