The spookiest scenes in Park City film

PARK CITY, Utah — In honor of spooky season, Utah State History has created an interactive map of horror movies filmed in Utah using data from the Utah Film Commission.

Many of these movies were filmed in the Park City area:

The Mine (2012) — filmed in Heber, Fairfield, and Ophir, this story centers on a group of five friends that decide to explore an abandoned, haunted mine on Halloween.

I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006) — Despite this slasher film being set in Colorado, it was actually filmed in Park City. After a group of teenagers cover up a friend’s death, they are haunted by a mysterious figure with a hook. A user review on IMDB said, “can a movie really be this bad?”

Bats (1999) — In what appears to be a modern-day rendition of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, genetically mutated bats escape and it’s up to a bat expert and the local sheriff to stop them. It was filmed in Park City.

The Boogens (1981) — filmed in the old mines around Park City, this movie pits a small mining town against turtle-like monsters that are released from an abandoned and boarded-up silver mine.

Snowbeast (2011) — Set in Canada but filmed at Brighton, a research team is stalked by something not human.

Ice Spiders (2007) — A young ski team training for the Olympics is attacked by giant spiders produced by a top-secret government project.
