Remember the Movie ‘Casper’? It Was Set in Maine
1995 was a simpler time, especially for me. I was just starting kindergarten and life was good. Plus, my favorite childhood "spooky" movie, Casper came out!
If you haven't seen it since the '90s you may have forgotten that the film and the haunted home, "Whipstaff Manor" takes place in Friendship, Maine.
Now, anyone who is familiar with Friendship, Maine knows that it definitely wasn't filmed there. Friendship is a small fishing town and honestly, quite easy to miss while you're driving through.
A nearby town did get some camera time to give the movie that coastal Maine feel. None other than the beautiful Camden.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like young Christina Ricci or her film-dad Bill Pullman made the trek to the Maine coast for filming. According to TheCinemaholic, Whipstaff Manor was largely built on sets.
The Cinemaholic also revealed a great fun fact though, the main area of Whipstaff Manor had a creepy swirly floor. (Which was perfect for the Halloween dance from the film.) But that same floor can be seen somewhere else from the '90s as well.
A Backstreet Boys music video. (Alright!)
If you'd like to relive the magic of Casper and see if you can spot Camden, Maine, Casper is part of Freeform's 31 days of Halloween and will be airing on October 10th at 3:35 pm.
