Where Was Lifetime’s Fatal Fixer Upper Filmed? Who is in the Cast?

Helmed by David DeCoteau, Lifetime’s ‘Fatal Fixer Upper’ is a thriller drama film about a picture-perfect couple —Vivienne and Ryan Williams — who purchase a seemingly picture-perfect home in a Californian suburb from a mysterious man named Josh. It doesn’t take long for their stay in the picturesque abode to turn nightmarish as the owner suddenly appears in the house unannounced, claiming that a few parts of the house still need fixing.

Still attached to the house, Josh continues bothering the couple by showing up at strange times. When he becomes obsessed with Vivienne, the couple must find a way to deal with his stalkerish behavior and prevent him from destroying their lives. Since the thrilling drama unfolds in and around the couple’s new house in a luxurious suburb of California, it serves as another important character in itself that drives the narrative forward.
