This movie earns honorable mention because it was not filmed in Kenosha. This movie was filmed about 20 miles South in Waukegan, IL. The road used for this film was supposed to be apart of a highway system that began in Milwaukee and ended somewhere near Chicago. The Waukegan section was the only section ever built.
The City of Kenosha is mentioned in many movies, however, not many big name movies have actually filmed here. In addition, Kenosha is referenced by TV shows like “That ’70s Show,” and “The FBI Files,” but major motion pictures missed this location.
My research led me to realize that horror movies are the most common genre filmed in Kenosha. Don’t be surprised if you see zombies walking down the streets of Kenosha!
Popular movies filmed in Milwaukee include:
