Netflix’s huge Bo Burnham special, Inside was a perfect look at the horror and stages of pandemic isolation over the course of lockdown. It turns out that the production grounds were also home to Nancy and her family in A Nightmare on Elm Street. The house that recently went for sale on the open market, was previously used for the filming of Burnham’s intimate special.

More clearly, Burnham’s special was filmed in the Nightmare on Elm Street house’s guest house out back. The house at the time belonged to friend of Burnham and director Lorene Scafaria. Even though Scafaria was the owner, Burnham used the guest house to great effect in his special.

The entire special is a soul crushing look at the levels of what we were all going through during lockdown. It perfectly illustrated the stages of loneliness, moments of levity and ultimately hope extinguishing dread. Hilariously enough it was a comedy special and a really great one.

I love the juxtaposition of Nancy’s nightmares and Burnham’s existential nightmares. Knowing now that this was home to the two very different nightmares is a nice bit of trivia.

Bo Burnham’s Inside can be found on Netflix and it comes as a high recommend from me for the a fore mentioned dread.
