Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation (1990)



Before last year, my familiarity with the Silent Night, Deadly Night series was only with the first two films.   After deciding to research and visit filming locations for Part 2, in particular the Garbage Day scene, I thought I should check out the whole series.   The original was shot in Utah, the rest in Southern California, so here you go...
      Silent Night Deadly Night
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 2
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation
      Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker


Well, if you that the third entry in the franchise was out there, this one takes it a few steps further and off the ledge.  Let's start with some minor locations.  First up is the Paradise Motel... just as "lovely" as the day they shot it....

Next up is the "LA Eye" office, which was kind enough to have an address on the welcoming mat seen in the movie...

As she exits the office, she steps out on this corner...

And looks down and sees Ricky sitting outside across the street from the Dresden, which is several miles away...

Which brings us to the main building up the street from the Dresden.   Here is the curb where she parks....

The "Munn Fresh Meat" side of the building...

The corner of the building where Ricky emerges in the beginning....

The roof of the building where a character spontaneously combusts and falls...
