A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)


Check out the all-new Dream Master page on Set-Jetter.com!



NEW LOCATION FOUND:  I have been desperately searching for Alice and Rick's house but couldn't track it down.   While I had the house number, I searched Burbank via Google Map but always came up with nothing.  However, there is about a four block area not covered by Google  yet, so while I had some extra time this morning, I venture down there streets and there it was!    The pictures, of course, recreate Kristen's drive up to the house.  Looks virtually the same all these years later.....




I'm a big fan of the Elm Street series, but most of my location visits focused on the original film.   On this latest trip, I decided to focus on the fourth entry of the series.  (Check out my previous blog to see some of the cast pictures.)

First up is the school.   A careful look shows that this is the original Rydell High, Venice High School.



Next up, Kristen's house which I found in the Hollywood area.


The final scene takes place by a fountain right in the heart of Hollywood.


And my favorite find, The Crave Inn.  This cafe is in the Culver City area, special thanks to Andras Jones for helping me track this one down!

  5. I hope you were playing "Back to the Wall" by Divinyls as you drove up to Alice's house! It's only fitting!

  6. It annoys me when movie location stalkers won't give up the exact addresses of places so others can't find them their selves if they ever end up in the area! ;)

  7. It's not that I didn't give up, you didn't ask... my facebook contact information is on every page or you can simply nicely ask what address you want....

  9. Thanks for the memories man..I was there at Venice High School when they filmed Nightmare on Elm St 4. It was cool. I tell some of my friends "you see the science building? I'm in there. Trapped in a movie and you can't see me"

    I'll be driving from San Diego to San Francisco next week with family. Be nice to drive around some filming location. How could I find Alice and Kristen's House, and also the park with the fountain from the end of the film? Please, I could use your help!

  11. Sure thing, Alice's house is in Burbank (1510 Oak Street), Kristen's house is in the Hollywood area (450 N June Street), and the Mullholland Fountain is on Los Feliz and Riverside Drive.

  12. Great pics. Kristen's house is also used the Steven Seagal movie "The Glimmer Man." I saw that first, so when I watched "Nightmare 4" for the first time I immediately recognized it.

  18. Hi Robert,
    Did you know if the famous Rialto Theater is torn down (a great location of Nightmare 4 too) ?
    It was supposed to close in 2007 apparently :

    Theater must be still standing, I have also read that opening sequence of Scream 2 (the premiere of Stab) was shot there.

  20. Last I saw it was still standing, but closed. And yes, the exterior of Scream 2 was shot there, but the interior theatre was shot at a different location.
