Location, Location er… Location
The Cliché: Mental Hospital, Campsite or mansion, the key word you’re looking for here is ‘Abandoned’.
Appears In: Friday the 13th (1980)
How To Recreate It: Finding the perfect abandoned location has never been easier, thanks to the global economic crisis.
Families, businesses and nuisance occupiers of land everywhere are being kicked out.
If you happen to need a property for a shoot that hasn’t already been vacated, place a call, mutter the words 'swine flu outbreak' and it should be empty for at least a fortnight.
Once the place is yours, spread a little cement around the place to make it look old, and pray you nail the scene in one take before the occupiers reach the end of the infection period.
