The zombie apocalypse is upon us, but so is an epidemic of runaway film production. Most of the L.A-situated AMC series was filmed in Vancouver, but they did use a few local places to keep it recognizable.
  1. Bethany Presbyterian Church
    72929314 2a1e 47c6 8ca7 cd8db4e2b47b
    On the first episode, it played a dingy, junkie shooting gallery. IRL it's a perfectly nice church along Griffith Boulevard.
  2. Sunset Triangle Plaza
    5d187de1 0d59 47c4 a0e3 dcbedb7ebcd9
    The parklet in Silverlake appears in an ominous shot in the first episode before a main character named Nick gets hit by a car and ends up in...
  3. Temple Community Hospital
    3cd3a2f9 a1b9 42f3 99f6 dd5f0eecfbf1
    In the real world, Temple Community has been closed since 2014 (it shuttered after 70 years due to low revenue and hefty retrofitting expenses). In the Fear world, it is a bustling infirmary where doctors talk in hushed voices about viruses we don’t know enough about.
  4. Woodrow Wilson High School
    050bac38 c89a 407a 8f3b cbdd1bc2fa70
    "Fear" disguises WWHS as Paul B. Williams High School, but the LAUSD institution, located in El Sereno, is one of the main spots where the drama unfolds.
  5. Venice Boardwalk
    633eecbf 2496 4e74 a3e5 b4ed56f15ab4
    Half-dressed, slow-moving people would go unnoticed here. Good place for zombies to blend in. We'll see...
  6. Sixth Street Viaduct Bridge
    50b49b56 1c72 478c 868d 759d8a2bd2a0
    A big "I toldja so!" moment happened when the undead shuffled along this historic Boyle Heights/DTLA overpass in the first episode. But here's something actually scary: if there's a major earthquake, this 1932 bridge has an estimated 70 percent chance of collapse. A replacement project is in the works, with a 2019 date of completion.
