Old-school horror movies filmed around Miami
What's scarier than traffic on I-95? Maybe a serial killer caterer who serves up his victims for dinner.
- That's the plot of the 1963 horror film "Blood Feast," which was filmed in Miami Beach around the Suez Motel.
The 1972 zombie flick "Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things" was also shot in Miami.
- One of the movie's actors said in an interview that shooting took place behind Matheson Hammock Park, at a since-demolished home in Coconut Grove and on an island near a sewer plant in Key Biscayne.
- Director Bob Clark would later go on to release "Porky's" and "A Christmas Story."
