Got a feeling we're not in California anymore?
The graphic piece includes over 900 film locations, according to FastCo. British designer Ali Johnson told the website that the team attempted to show respect for their homeland: "We did pay our own personal tribute with a district dedicated to Hitchcock and also Cult British Horror films. And we also included a Red Light District--that was [my colleague] Phil’s idea not mine!”
Johnson cites some of her favorite landmarks as being "Brighton Rock," "Cape Fear," "Sleepy Hollow," and "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." We personally enjoy the "Soylent Green" park!
