Deadly Friend (1986)


His feature film follow up to A Nightmare On Elm Street, Wes Craven's Deadly Friend is deadly bad.    Although it seems there was a lot of studio tinkering, I'm not sure the original vision was much better as it plays like a SyFy original.

The main houses were shot on Warner Brothers backlot....

  1. The Elvira house is different from the Growing Pains house / Mrs. Deagle house from Gremlins.

    When you turn down that street, the Growing Pains / Gremlins house is the first house on the right. Elvira's house is the last house on the left, just around that little curve.
