  1. Bo Catlett’s house's looks like the same one that was briefly in Pulp Fiction when Marsellsu Wallace was sitting on the deck taking a phone call from Samuel L. Jackson's character.

    1. No, these two houses look different.

  2. I'm pretty sure that Bo Catlett's house is at 8758 Hollywood Blvd.
    About 10 minutes after the scene with Bear and his daughter, Bo gives Chili directions to his house in Laurel Canyon. The address he gives (8151 Wonderland Ave.) isn't plausible as the filming location, but Laurel Canyon has very similar views to the ones shown in the earlier scene.

  3. Actually, it's definitely there. Check the exterior shot at 1:31:50 in the movie against the Street View of 8758 Hollywood Blvd.

    1. Thank you but I'm not 100% sure if the house front and the back were filmed at the same place.

  4. The address Karen is held hostage at by bear and his boss is told to chili to be at 8150 wonderland Ave which is the address where the infamous wonderland murders took place in 1980. Aka the four on the floor murders, a movie called wonderland was made about the murders with Val killer playing John holmes a famous porn star who was involved in the murders. Just very interesting
