Home / Watch Local: Tales from Malibou Lake
Our October edition of Watch Local visits Malibou Lake, the scenic reservoir in Agoura Hills, California that has appeared in dozens of film spanning back to the silent era. Although featured in a multitude of genres, Malibou Lake became one of the most iconic horror locations in Hollywood after appearing in the famous lakeside scene with Frankenstein’s Monster in Universal’s 1931 FRANKENSTEIN. Our series includes Mervyn LeRoy’s Academy Award nominated psychological thriller THE BAD SEED, Gore Verbinski’s terrifying 2002 horror re-make THE RING, Jonathan Demme’s early exploitation film for New World Pictures, CRAZY MAMA, and Charlie Chaplin’s classic talkie THE GREAT DICTATOR.
