After Blair Witch Project, I wanted to move (we live out in the boonies)! Wouldn't go outside after dark for a week! I think I'll skip this one, in spite of the Airstream!

Saw the New movie "8 Below" about a guide in Antarctica and his trusty sled dogs. Good movie if you like dogs. Did not expect the following. The guide goes back to his summer home on the shores of the Oregon coast and what does he live in, a 34 Excella right there on the rocky shore. What a location. The movie has a number of scenes inside the trailer as well. It was an unexpected surprise in the movie. Oregon looks like an amazing place to visit, some day...

Looks like "8 Below" will be an addition to my DVD collection when it eventually comes out.

The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

There is a re-make of Wes Craven's 1977 classic "The Hills Have Eyes" that starts playing this Friday.

I am pretty sure that it has an Airstream in it.

Anyone know anything about it?

I just saw "The Devil's Rejects", a horror movie last weekend. There's an older short Airstream (about an 18 footer or so) parked in front of the motel where the bad guys take some hostages. It's in several shots.

airstream in the movies

took my son to the movies yesterday. he wanted to see a movie called "the hills have eyes". interesting move and featured a beautiful restored 1988 airstream. broke my heart when i saw what happened to the trailer in the end of the movie, but i won't ruin it for those of you wanting to see this movie. one last thought, the movie might change your thoughts on boondocking. be ready to jump out of your seat!

I just got out of that movie.... i said the exact same thing! It was also interesting to watch the video footage of the trailer jack-knifing (that was in the advertisements, so it's not ruining it).

I know its not in the movies but I just saw a commercial for Sears appliances and it had a very brief side shot of an early '60's Airstream. Just had time to notice the door-in-a-door and it was only the front part of the trailer.

My Airstream is gonna be in a movie

My 1972 Safari will be "set dressing" outside a "biker bar" in a new film being shot here in New Mexico called Wild Hogs staring John Travolta, Tim Allen and Martin Lawrence. When the art director first talked to me about it he said, "it's not one of those shined up ones, is it?" I said no, that I just got it and it had been sitting outside for years. He said "Great!" I said it had some hail damage on the front cap "Wonderful!" he replied. He asked me to send him some "audition" pictures and said, "Please don't even wash it when you take the pictures." So, here's an instance where polish doesn't pay. Guess I'll keep her "au natural" for any future possible cameo appearances. Sometimes the aged pewter look is preferable to polished.
