25-Years-Later, This Is What The “Edward Scissorhands” Neighborhood Looks Like

In these modern CGI times, it’s often difficult to figure out where a film was shot. But Voodrew, real name Andrew Cremeans, grew up in the northern Tampa, Florida neighborhood where the 1990 film “Edward Scissorhands” starring Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder, was shot. Recently, Cremeans took a walk through his old neighborhood to hunt down locations from the movie.

“I couldn’t believe how small of a section the suburban neighborhood was used, it seemed so huge in the movie,” he told Mashable. “It feels especially small when you are standing and looking down the street to the cul de sac the castle was on….I caught myself wondering many times if all these people know that their house was in the movie set.”

Over five million trees now grow in the Pasco County subdivision, significantly altering the landscape. Cremeans says that he was inspired by Reddit user stupidtrooper’s photo series on filming locations, and the fact that it’s the film’s 25th anniversary; Cremeans’ mother was the film’s on-call doctor.

even though there was no tree, at least the houses were stylish, now it's all depressing and flat...

Wow- once he stopped trimming the trees really took off! We always heard this was filmed in Tampa but actually Pasco is not Tampa- it's quite a ways from it.

Those houses weren't originally those colors, were painted for the movie
