The Starcourt Mall is a hub for creepy and terrifying events in Stranger Things Season 3, but even when the cameras stopped rolling, the show’s actors didn’t feel much better. The cast have said the mall’s eerie feeling is no fiction, and there’s good reason they felt uneasy while working there.
Season 3 filmed partially at the Gwinnett Place Mall, located in Duluth, Georgia. A 19-year-old Georgia State University student, Silling A. Man, was found dead in an abandoned Subway in the mall’s food court in December 2017. Her body had been there for months before it was discovered by a maintenance worker. Details about her death, and the eerie Stranger Things connection, were revealed on the podcast “And That’s Why We Drink” in “Listener Stories: Vol. 30,” and can be confirmed by multiple reports from local news outlets.
