“Filming Location of Spider Baby!”
The Smith Estate, also known as El Mio, is a historic Victiorian style mansion perched on the hills of Highland Park. The Smith Estate has been home to many notable occupants. Among whom: a judge who wrote on the occult, the head of the Los Angeles Railway, and even a mayor. Today, it is perhaps best known as a filming location for many pulp horror movies. Movies such as Spider Baby, Silent Scream, and Insidious 2 have all utilized this location.
99% of the cult classic, "Spider Baby" takes place at the Merrye House, which is actually the Smith Estate in Los Angeles. Though in the movie the home looks desolate and isolated off the main road, in reality it's actually right on the road, so if you drive by it you can pull over for a fantastic photo-op. It's considered one of the best-preserved Victorian homes in L.A.
