Get spooked and spot downtown Seattle locations in "The Ring."

Seattle is a natural setting for a scary movie: the mists, the gloom and yes, the rain. Just in time for Halloween, add some local color to your next movie night with one of the following flicks, each of which uses the city for inspiration. 

Look for Pike Place Market in The Vanishing (1993) and Cthulhu (2007); nearby Whidbey Island in Practical Magic (1998) and The Ring (2002); Boren Avenue in David Lynch’s Fire Walk with Me (1992); points around the University of Washington campus in WarGames (1983) and The Changeling (1980); Magnuson Park in Stephen King’s Rose Red (2002); a luxury home in Magnolia in The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (1992); various downtown locations in The Ring and The Changeling; and the Space Needle in The Night Strangler (1973) and Fear (1996).
