I Only Reviewed The Chicago Locations For This Movie.  The Rest Of It Was Filmed In Kentucky.

  1. I know this is an older movie. But it would be awesome if you reviewed the Kentucky filming locations also.

  2. I totally agree Donna Rye, I would love to know also because that is where my wife is from, Pineville KY

  3. I love this movie "Next of Kin" I'm from Chicago & love seeing the different locations that I'm familiar with. Loved seeing Patrick Swayze again. He was a fabulous actor.

  4. The Kentucky scene of the family readying to go to Chicago where they got the call about Briar's death was filmed at the Market Bar at 14th st and Morgan st Chicago. I was an xtra in the film and I also managed the bar for my brother inlaw.

    1. Thank you for this update, I just watched the film on Paramount Channel. Great Film d locations. Cheers 🍻👍

    2. You’re brother in law didn’t own the bar bro 🤣

  5. loved the movie where in kentucky was it film any help

  6. The Carbon Glow Train Station where they unloaded the casket was filmed in Hazzard,Ky but it was called C & NW Rail Depot (Chicago & Nothern Western Transportation but it was torn down a couple years after they filmed the movie. The the cave explosion the lumber lumber yard the hospital scene the quarry scene the bar and small grocery store where Steven Segal buys the honey all filmed in Hazzard,Ky. The dance and outdoor music by the water and the Casino was filmed on studio in California and the house of Sarah Kellogg and the Church was build on private property in Hazzard and then torn down. The house of the old man Seagal takes to the hospital I'm not sure if it was build by the production company are if it was torn down are still standing I don't know. The airplane Seagal is flying is was filmed at an small airport in California. I talked to the Kentucky location manager and this what he told me. I'm still trying to track these locations down.

  7. The courthouse scenes was filmed in Downtown Los Angeles,Ca

  8. The courthouse and airport scenes was from another movie. Sorry I got the comfused with the Steven Seagal movie that was also filmed in Hazzard,Ky. The train station was filmed there but the bar grocery store the mine explosion the quarry the church Sarah's house the lumber yard was all filmed in Hazzard but it called Fire Down Below Steven Seagal.

  9. Wondering if either of the bar scenes in Chicago were filmed at Carol's Pub. Anyone know?
