As a bonus, here are a few shots of the amazing sets from the film.



This interior was inspired by the Ennis House in Hollywood, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.



It's where our lovely heroine, played by Jennifer Connelly, was being held against her will:

I love the Ennis House. It was actually used for location shots in two of my favorite films; "Blade Runner" and William Castle's "House on Haunted Hill". There's just something about the house that creates a certain mood and feeling. Thanks, Dave.

What, that was just a set? I thought they actually filmed those scenes at the Ennis House!

David - I also thought it was shot at the Ennis House, but I believe somebody quickly corrected me on a previous post!
