You Can’t Escape Me Filming Locations
Much like several Lifetime movies, ‘You Can’t Escape Me’ was also filmed in California, most likely in Los Angeles and a few areas of Sierra Madre. As per reports, the shooting wrapped up in May 2022. Though the movie’s narrative originally unravels in Seattle, there are no records of the crew filming in this Washington State’s city. So, without any further ado, let’s go through all the details of the specific locations in the movie.
Los Angeles, California
From what we can tell, the crew filmed a major portion of the movie in Los Angeles, the world’s entertainment capital. Some widely popular sites preferred for shooting are The Griffith Observatory, Venice Beach, and Point Dume, among 100 others.
Some segments were supposedly lensed at West Hills, a suburban community. Here, they filmed at the Orcutt Ranch, which is a horticulture center and a monument of historical and cultural significance located at 23600 Roscoe Blvd, West Hills, CA 91304.
The team purportedly recorded a few scenes at the Granada Hills suburban region, too, which lies at the foothills of the Santa Susana Mountains. Both sites are based in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. ‘Bullet Train‘ and ‘Don’t Worry Darling‘ are some of the thrillers shot in the city of Los Angeles.
Sierra Madre, California
The city of Sierra Madre seemingly served as a filming spot for ‘You Can’t Escape Me.’ It is a metropolis in Los Angeles County and is roughly located 18 miles away from the sprawling city of Los Angeles. Sierra Madre translates to “mother range” in Spanish, and it is at the southern perimeter of the Angeles National Forest, at the foothills of the San Gabriel Valley.
Mount Wilson Trail, Sierra Madre Playhouse, and Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center are some of the most sought-after sites in the city. If reports are to be believed, the crew likely filmed a few portions near Lien Allen Salon, which lies at 144 West Sierra Madre Blvd. Some other movies and shows of the same genre filmed in Sierra Madre are ‘True Lies,’ ‘Above Suspicion,’ and ‘Lethal Weapon.’
You Can’t Escape Me Cast
