Daddy's Girl (1996)


It's been a while.  I watched Daddy's Girl (1996) the other night and the locations were super easy to find, so I figured I'd throw a little post together for old time's sake.  This movie was a '90s suburban thriller from Canadian producer Pierre David, who made a string of these similar thrillers throughout the '90s including The Paperboy (1994), The Neighbor (1993), Stalked (1994), The Nurse (1997), The Landlady (1998), The Dentist (1996), etc.  He's still making the same kind of movies, only now geared towards Lifetime instead of the '90s straight-to-video market.

The Landers House - 21319 Celtic St



The three main houses in the movie are all located on Celtic St in Chatsworth.  The Mitchell family home, where Don and Barbara live with their evil adopted daughter Jody and niece Karen, is located in Celtic Ct, a quiet cul-de-sac at the end of the street.  Grandmother lives just a short walk down the road, and real estate agent Rachel Landers and her daughter Claire live right next door to grandma.  It's funny to see Rachel driving up to grandmother's house near the end of the movie, considering she lives right next door.  She probably could have just walked!

Thanks to a conveniently placed street sign featured in the movie, Jody's school was an extremely easy find.  The school is Bridges Academy in Studio City.  The interior of this building served as the hallways of Westerburg High in Heathers (1988).  The Remington University alley where Winona Ryder infamously said "Lick it up, baby!  Lick it up!" is also located here on the campus.  The entrance featured in Daddy's Girl is located at the corner of Maxwellton Rd and Mound View Ave.
