I was shocked to see how different it looks. This makes me wonder--were the blue shutters and the wraparound porches just special effects? What do you think?
Lisa, who sent me the photo, tells me that the house has been condemned because it is practically falling into the water now. People have been breaking into the house and stealing things because it was in the movie and they want a piece of it. How sad.
You can see more photos of the house in the post I wrote here, or check out a list of all of the movie houses I've featured on my Houses Onscreen page.
UPDATE 1/10: For the latest information about the house and the efforts to rescue it, visit Hooked on Houses.
