‘Tsunambee’ and 27 Other Horror Movies Filmed in Colorado
When you think of filming locations for movies, places that typically come to mind include popular studio cities like Los Angeles or even more exotic locales like New Zealand or Scotland depending on the genre. However, there are quite a few horror movies that were filmed right here in Colorado over the years.
Horror Movies Filmed in Colorado
I'll never forget the first time I watched the 1998 Dean Koontz horror film 'Phantoms' starring Ben Affleck and thinking to myself, "this looks familiar." I had a feeling that the movie was filmed in Georgetown, Colorado and after a quick Google search I found out that I was correct.
Cheesy, Low-Budged Horror Filmed in Colorado
While 'Phantoms' is one horror film with rather big-name actors in it, the majority of horror movies filmed in Colorado are a little lower-budget than the Dean Koontz treatment.
For example, there are a few really cheesy, purposefully goofy horror movies that were filmed in Colorado with titles such as 'Killer Tumbleweeds' and 'Tsunambee,' the winged cousin of 'Sharknado.'
Dee Snider's Movie Was Filmed in Colorado
Another movie that was filmed in Colorado that caught me by surprise was 'Strangeland,' a film that I'd seen years ago starring Twisted Sister's Dee Snider as a psychopath with entirely too many piercings. That particular movie was filmed in Colorado Springs.
