Soon after agreeing upon a pact of silence, the friends are threatened by an anonymous writer who seems to know their dark secret and wants to reveal them. Threatening to post a horror novel based on them, the anonymous stalker/writer takes the life of one of them for each chapter of the novel.

Toledo, Spain

A significant portion of ‘Killer Book Club’ was lensed in the city of Toledo, which is the capital of the eponymous province and the de facto seat of the government of Spain’s autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha. The production team kicked off the shooting in Toledo, utilizing various neighborhoods and streets across the city. For instance, Hospital de Tavera at C. Duque de Lerma, 2, in Toledo was transformed into a university headquarters where the protagonists study. Moreover, several important scenes set inside the university were recorded in the Convento de San Pedro Mártir as well.

Madrid, Spain

The shooting for ‘Killer Book Club’ was also carried out in and around Madrid, the capital of Spain. During the shooting schedule, many locals and passersby spotted the director and his team taping numerous key portions for the film in La Vía Láctea at Calle de Velarde, 18, in Madrid. The locales of the Centro district of Madrid also feature quite heavily in various scenes. Apart from that, the production team reportedly traveled northeast of the city of Madrid to the city of Alcalá de Henares, which is located in the Community of Madrid.

Although the Veki Velilla starrer seemingly features popular local attractions such as the Plaza Mayor, the Puerta de Alcalá, the Royal Palace of Madrid, and Almudena Cathedral, there have been other productions that have made the most of the city’s landscapes for filming purposes as well. Some of the notable ones include ‘The Others,’ ‘Pieces,’ ‘The Chalk Line,’ ‘The Devil’s Backbone,’ and ‘The Girl in the Mirror.’
