The Mortuary Collection House: The Real Raven's End Filming Location

Posted by

The Mortuary Collection is a horror anthology movie containing four short tales slightly interconnected with the main plot, all full of gore and humor.

The linking story is set in the fictional island town of Raven's End.

The Mortuary Collection house Sam (Caitlin Custer) is a woman who after the funeral of a young boy challenges mortician Montgomery Dark (Clancy Brown), to tell her the scariest stories about death that he has encountered in his position.

Brown is known for his roles in The Shawshank Redemption, Highlander, or Thor: Ragnarok.

The movie features several cool and unusual filming locations. The Mortuary Collection was filmed in Astoria (Oregon), and Los Angeles. Here is our terrific spoiler-free report:

Where was The Mortuary Collection filmed?

Raven's End
Astoria is a gorgeous city overlooking the Columbia River, filled up with magnificent Victorian-era buildings.

Travel Oregon highlights the Scandinavian flavor of this picturesque settlement surrounded by forests and hills, located a stone’s throw away from the Pacific Ocean.

The movie's opening shows the 1913's Astoria Riverfront Trolley passing by Riverwalk and 14th Street.

Raven's End Mortuary
The Raven's End Mortuary is the Captain George Flavel House Museum. Built in 1885, this is one of Astoria's top local landmarks.

The manor, which was also a featured location in The Goonies, is one of the best preserved examples of Queen Anne architecture west side of the Rockies. It was about to be torn down a couple of times to make way for a parking lot.

Today, this 11,600 square feet property is a museum managed by the Clatsop County Historical Society.

Lincoln Avenue Methodist Church Sandra's house (Ema Horvath) is the Lincoln Avenue Methodist Church.

Built in 1897 in Pasadena, the temple was disassembled in six big pieces in 1981 and moved to the Heritage Square Museum in the Montecito Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The beautifully ornate stained glass windows were stolen just before the relocation.

Since the 1960s, this open-air architecture museum has saved eight historic buildings from demolition thanks to a group of prominent citizens.

Featuring Art Deco and Gothic elements, the building has gone down in history for being the site used for the first cable TV system, just after World War II.

The Babysitter Murders Dr. Kubler's house featured in The Babysitter Murders episode is also part of the Heritage Square Museum.

The 1887 Hale House was beautifully restored, inside and out in 1970. Originally located in the Highland Park neighborhood of LA, this is considered the most photographed house in the entire city.

I use to live in Astoria and have visited both the Flavel House and the old jail across the street quite a few times. They're nothing short of amazing. I highly recommend it!
