Like several other Lifetime movies, ‘Pool Boy Nightmare’ was shot entirely in Los Angeles, California. In the heart of Los Angeles in Hollywood, which is often considered as the birthplace of various genres of cinema as it is home to some of the worlds’ major production studios – Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., and Universal Pictures. Plus, its sprawling metropolis, scenic attractions, and Mediterranean climate add to the city’s value.
