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.
