Hidden Murder Island: Where Was it Filmed?

The principal photography for ‘Hidden Murder Island’ seemingly occurred in California during December 2022, particularly in Los Angeles, like most Lifetime movies. The team set camp around the beaches and islands of California because it was a fitting backdrop for the movie.

It also boasts a number of serene beaches where ‘Hidden Murder Island’ could be possibly captured, such as Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Malibu, Manhattan, and El Matador.

The City of Angels is preferred as a backdrop in most projects due to the incredible tax incentives that provide financial benefits for small-scale creators.

Due to the diversity of the region, it is fitting for a hipster or luxurious backdrop and suits almost all genres. The high-end infrastructure helps to recreate sites that are not easily accessible. Moreover, the post-production facilities, sound stages, and rental companies present the team with all possible resources. Other thrillers filmed here are ‘The Last Thing He Told Me’ and ‘Bullet Train.’
