Now, let’s follow Li Ronan as she captures all the scary and horrific moments on camera and learn about the specific locations that feature in each frame!


For taping all the pivotal sequences for ‘Incantation,’ the production team of the horror movie set up camp in different locations across Taiwan, a country in East Asia. It appears that a majority of shooting took place in and around Taipei City, the capital and a special municipality of Taiwan. By traveling across the country, the cast and crew members were able to get the necessary interior and exterior shots for the movie against suitable backdrops.

Taiwan’s culture is a blend of various sources as it includes several elements of the traditional Chinese culture, Japanese culture, aboriginal cultures, traditional Confucianist beliefs, and last but not least, some Western values. Its capital city, Taipei, is located in the northern part and is considered the country’s political, educational, economic, and cultural center. Over the years, the metropolis has served as a prominent production location for different movies and TV shows such as ‘The Sadness,’ ‘Lucy,’ ‘Life of Pi,’ ‘The Assassin,’ and ‘Light the Night.’
