Last week I made a roadtrip to visit several of the filming locations for STRANGER THINGS, with one of the main places I wanted to stop being Gwinnett Place Mall, which was used as the location for Starcourt Mall in season three of the series.
Cruise on over to our sister site of werewolves.com to see loads of photos that I took there and at the other sites.
Since STRANGER THINGS has physical monsters in it, I usually write about it at the Werewolves site. I did, however, write about the supposed haunting at Gwinnett Place Mall here on this site, too. The young actors of the series said that they thought it was haunted while they were filming there, and there was an incident where the body of a young murder victim was discovered, two weeks after her death, in the former food court.
I had forgotten all that, honestly. When I was at Gwinnett Place walking around, it had completely vanished from my memory banks. The person I was with, however, is a sensitive. At one point she started freaking out and insisted on leaving the area. She knew nothing of the history of the mall or the murder. But the place where she became overwhelmed by feelings of panic and discomfort? The site of the former food court. So yes, the kids were right. The place is haunted. Considering its current abandoned condition, it seems appropriate.
