Silent Scream (1980) was filmed in at The Smith Estate in Los Angeles. and it was previously known as the Merrye house in the cult classic Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1964). In both instances the house was chosen because it stands upon a hill, which made it easier to shoot wide angles and obscure the view of the neighboring homes in order to achieve a sense that the house is very isolated.
