The Hills Have Eyes

An abandoned horror film set sits eerily along a highway through Hollywood’s “door to the desert.”

An American-style gas station is waiting for you on the highway out of Ouarzazate (Morocco). It’s not a hallucination; rather it is the set used for the 2006 horror film “The Hills Have Eyes.” It was here, at this gas station, that the film’s protagonists are advised to take a gory, gruesome “shortcut.”

Even for those who aren’t familiar with the movie, the old station is a chilling sight. Supposedly, the eerie movie set looks so real people occasionally mistake it for an actual gas station. Smashed, weathered cars rust outside. Glass bottles glitter in the trees, and creepy puppets peer out from unexpected places.

The gas station sits along the highway that runs through a small commune outside Ouarzazate, a city known as Hollywood’s “door to the desert.” It’s a hotspot for desert-based film sets and on-location shooting.

Unfortunately the “diner” is not accessible, but make sure to take a peek through the window. Old props, like cans of soda and food, glass jars, and a handful of flags, sit undisturbed throughout the space. The dust-coated items make it look like the decrepit diner was abandoned in a hurry.
