‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ house sells for USD2.8M

UPI – A Los Angeles home made famous by the 1984 slasher film A Nightmare on Elm Street sold for almost USD3 million – and it came with Bo Burnham’s guest house.

The house, which served as protagonist Nancy Thompson’s home in exterior shots of the Wes Craven horror classic, sold for USD2.8 million after being listed for USD3.5 million shortly before Halloween 2021.

The listing said the home terrorised by Freddy Krueger had its interior redesigned in the mid-2000s, before being sold in 2013 to Hustlers Director Lorene Scafaria.

The listing includes a guest house, which itself was made famous by comedian Bo Burnham, who filmed his pandemic-themed special, Inside, in the domicile.
