Nightmare on Elm Street home up for sale

Located on 1428 N. Genesee Ave. in Los Angeles, California, is the original Nightmare on Elm Street home used in the iconic horror film franchise.

The home appeared in three of the A Nightmare on Elm Street films: A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984, its 1985 sequel A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, and the 1994 meta-sequel Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.

Now, it’s been put up for sale for a whopping $3.2 million after previously being purchased by Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria. Scafaria’s partner Bo Burnham also used it for his Netflix special, Inside. 

There hasn’t been an A Nightmare on Elm Street film since 2010. However, Elijah Woods has shown interest in rebooting the haunting tale. Woods’ production company SpectreVision has produced several films, including A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, Color Out of Space, and Mandy.

“We, personally, have talked a lot about, internally, Elm Street and how incredible it would be to play in that universe again and see that universe, to see Freddy [Krueger] and just that concept be explored again,” said Wood. He added, “You almost have to let Freddy go and move into a different direction. I think you bring Freddy along for the ride initially, but you have to go somewhere else with it because it’s such well-trodden ground.”
