    • I believe this location may have been purposely built for the film then demolished as I can’t find much information on it’s whereabouts I’m afraid.

  1. Where about is the school located? I live in Northern Ireland and was driving and passed a school that just gave me flash backs of this film.

    • I believe the school was constructed for the movie and then demolished shortly after
