The Devil And The Castle – Part 3

Let’s start with the bad news: most of the castle is not open for visitors. And that is a shame because that is where most of the film was made. You will have to do with a visit to the watchtower. But first some more exterior shots. And finally, it is time to enter the castle (or at least the…

The Devil And The Castle – Part 1

I have always been a big movie fan – I even wrote articles for an online movie magazine for some years – and a genre that I can really appreciate is horror movies.

Inspired by movies – Haunted or not?

Residual Residence was made in Bredene. The director of the movie didn’t have to look very far for a suitable location for his haunted house movie.

Inspired by movies – The Strangers Outside: Creepy Interiors

Vanessa told us that the creepiest scenes of the movie had been shot inside the fortification. So, of course, we had to have a look inside. Thus, Vanessa, The Viking and I went to the entrance. Once we were at the entrance, Vanessa and The Viking were a little hesitant to go inside the fortification… Now, I have to admit…

Inspired by movies – The Strangers Outside: What is that building?

When I was a child, my parents were often annoyed by my questions and my curiosity. I always told them that if you are not curious, you don’t know anything! I was very curious about the big building with the war memorial that was surrounded by the holiday cottages. It was clear it had something to do with World War…
