As we get closer to Halloween, horror movies have been on my mind.  Some of the most famous horror films, also have some famous locations.  It is one thing to see them on the big screen or streaming them at home.  It would be another to see it in person.  The Monroeville Mall just outside of Pittsburgh is still standing (where 1978's Dawn of the Dead was filmed).  The gas station in Bastrop, Texas that was in Texas Chainsaw Massacre has become a tourist attraction.  But here are 10 that you may want to visit sometime.
