Thanks for this wonderful snapshot of such a terrifying time in the Valley. I also lived there (in Woodland Hills) in ‘85, right next to Hughes Junior High, where The Karate Kid, Summer School, and A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 were filmed. So many great memories, but the Nightstalker always lurked around every corner in my mind.

Grew up with the laughter of Jim Henson echoing down the hall and the likes of Stan Lee darkening my door. Fiction is in my bones. Awkward humor is my maladie.
