Each year, fans from all over the country travel to California to visit a small house in Pasadena. It’s an unremarkable house, save for the fact that it’s immortalized on film as the house where six-year-old Michael Myers killed his sister, Judith.
Most fans are content to pose in front of the house for a few photos, maybe going so far as to do so while wearing a Michael Myers mask. Kenny Caperton took things a little farther. Kenny Caperton, a life-long fan of the Halloween franchise, built an exact replica of the Myers house in North Carolina.
It’s actually a beautiful house (the Capertons have proven to be much better at upkeep than the Myers clan), nestled in a rural area rather than a suburb. The plans were modified to accommodate some larger rooms and other small changes on the inside, but the general layout is the same. The family has filled it with a ton of tastefully displayed Halloween memorabilia, and every year they open their land up for a big Halloween bash complete with outdoor screenings (guess which movie…), a bonfire, tours of the house, and much more. It looks like a total blast, but I’m guessing the house alone would be worth the drive. I’m already planning a road trip…
Blu Gilliand is the managing editor of Cemetery Dance Magazine and Cemetery Dance Online. He’s pretty sure his house, while not a replica of the Myers house, is haunted.
