Perfection Valley plays a significant role in Tremors.
Amity Island does so for Jaws.

All the Subspecies movies were filmed in Romania using actual ruins and castles in the area.  It's kind of a dumb, soap opera-like series, but I really like it and I think the location helps.

I think the Blind Dead movies are also filmed in really cool Spanish castle-y places...  that's all I remember about them anyway.

Speaking of haunted house movies, I LOVE them, and maybe it's just me, but I think it's surprisingly hard to find really good ones that effectively showcase the building they are being filmed in.  The ones you mentioned are really the only ones that come to mind for me, but I would expect there to be a bunch of knock-offs that would be fun to watch.  

Ever see The Changeling (1980)?

OMG I love Subspecies and its location shots (I have parts 1 through 4, but have only made it through the first two so far). Radu is a great vampire, heh.

I believe Slaughter High was filmed in a derelict, about-to-be-torn-down school. It was probably one of the better elements (i.e. the atmosphere) of the film (as there are not many lol).

Haunted Houses, mansions, islands, etc. are always awesome, but there are other cool locations with great atmosphere, too.

The Mines in My Bloody Valentine.
The island in Bloodlust (or any remote/island movie).
The Thing from Another World being in a remote place in Alaska.
The Thing in a remote place in Antarctica.
Mental institution flicks.

I can't remember the name of it, but there was this flick I watched a couple of years ago where some backpackers explored a "secret" bunker/lab in remote Siberia (or Ural Mountains -can't remember for sure), which locks/closes from the outside only.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
