  • Apartment buildings/complexes (e.g., the Bramford in “Rosemary’s Baby”, the Jeffrey Beaumont’s apartment in “Blue Velvet”)
  • Churches/religious buildings (e.g., St. Patrick’s Cathedral in “Rosemary’s Baby”, the church where Father Brennan dies in “The Omen”)

  • Stores/businesses (e.g., the bookstore where Rosemary buys a book in “Rosemary’s Baby”, the hardware store where Jeffrey works in “Blue Velvet”)

I’ve already caught out ChatGPT in one mistake (“Black Kiss” ends in a house) which highlights the limits of using ChatGPT as a tool. I was able to discover that because of how well I know “Black Kiss”; but the others I either haven’t seen (“The Omen”, “Rosemary’s baby”) or haven’t seen in literal decades (“Blue Velvet”) so I have no idea what its being overlooked.

Still! The point of this excercise is to come up with a list of locations to build on my homestead so it’s not a complete wash. It was going to be incomplete anyway; I didn’t even try to ask it for locations from “Opus Eponymous” (because the lyrics were vague on that part except for cloister, hospital and tomb)
