  1. It’s the same building, yes. It was the funeral home in Phantasm, and it’s the hotel (I think, or house one character lives in) in So I Married An Axe Murderer. I probably should have mentioned SIMAAM in my post.

    The inside shots were done on a soundstage on Phantasm. I know this because the stage burned down during filming and they had to build it again.

  2. It’s a remarkable house but has one feature that was peculiar since the day it was built- the tall portico has three columns. It’s an almost unheard of thing in classical architecture as it puts one column right in the center where it might cover a doorway (if classical balance is observed) although the interpenetration of the lower porch obscures this.
