Apt Pupil | 1998

Disturbing Stephen King adaptation, from the director of The Usual Suspects and X-Men, about the growing fascination of schoolboy Todd Bowden (Brad Renfro) with ageing ex-Nazi war criminal Kurt Dussander (Ian McKellen).

Todd’s school is Eliot Middle School, 2184 North Lake Avenue, Altadena, east of Los Angeles – also seen in Rob Zombie’s 2007 remake of Halloween. There's more filming around the LA suburb of Alhambra.
