1983’s The House on Sorority Row was filmed in a suburb of Baltimore using the  talents of John Waters Dreamlanders Vince Peranio and Robert Maier.  Even Pecker’s Memama (Jean Schertler, FULL OF GRACE!) had a bit part as a nurse!
The 1912 Colonial country mansion (aka Eltonhead) where filming took  place was rumored to have been torn down.  But after 30 years it’s only  been converted into 4 townhomes & completely surrounded by new roads  and homes.  Just to be sure I found the right location, I’ve supplied an old aerial photo that  shows where the famous swimming pool used to be!
A brand new 2-disc dvd was just released and you can even read about the day John Waters showed up on the set in Robert Maier’s Low Budget Hell:  Making Underground Movies with John Waters
And, as luck would have it, the main part of the house (1 of the 4 townhomes) was for sale recently and you can see a picture of the staircase looking exactly like it did in the movie.
And finally, here’s where it is:
26 Bellchase  Court, Pikesville, MD 21208*
This is a newer address given to the  house after the surrounding development began.  The mansion used to have  a long, winding driveway that led to Park Heights Avenue.
