Video blogger, Johnswackyworld, started a campaign to save the "real" Elm Street house, the only problem, it may not be the real house!
The house in question resides on Elm Street in Potsdam, New York. Some people claim it is the house that inspired Wes Craven's film, because at one time he was a professor at Potsdam's Clarkson University. He also helped some students make a horror spoof called Pandora's Experimentia there. The only problem, according to Cinematical.com, Craven has denied that the house had anything to do with Elm Street.
"The movie is thought lost forever, but at least this house still exists. However, it is going to be destroyed very soon if nobody tries to stop the town's fire department from using it for training purposes. At least one guy is attempting to save the house, which he mistakenly yet humorously says in the below video "was based on the movie." He mostly seems to want it preserved because he has the feeling of the movie (I think he means Craven's later film, not the student production) while in its presence. And yet, he contributes to the demolition at the end of his tribute by stealing a big chunk of the former Theta Chi (that's pronounced with a "k" sound, by the way) house's side porch."
Check out the video below and lets us know what you know about the "real" Elm Street house.
