Directed by Adam Randall (‘I See You’), ‘Night Teeth’ is a monster horror film. It follows Benny (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.), who substitutes his brother Jay (Raúl Castillo) as a chauffeur for the night. That is how he meets Blaire (Debby Ryan) and Zoe (Lucy Fry), two beautiful and seemingly young women whom he is supposed to drive to various parties around Los Angeles. However, he soon learns there is more to the girls than what meets the eye.
Blaire and Zoe are vampirish creatures of the night, out on a killing spree to establish a new order in the city. As the characters move from place to place in LA, little does one expect the happening city to turn into a frightening hotbed of supernatural activity. If you are wondering whether ‘Night Teeth’ was shot on location, we’ve got you covered!
Night Teeth Filming Locations
‘Night Teeth’ was predominantly filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Los Angeles, California. Filming began in New Orleans in February 2020. However, after only 44 days of shooting, production was shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Five months later, in August 2020, the crew resumed filming, which concluded in October 2020. Let’s look at the specific locations in detail!
New Orleans, Louisiana
Several scenes of ‘Night Teeth’ were shot in New Orleans, a city situated by the Mississippi River. It has gained prominence for its unique culture, dialect, and Creole cuisine. The city’s long history of diversity and multiculturism resonates from every facet of art produced in the Big Easy — from music to literature and painting to entertainment. Because of its thriving entertainment industry, New Orleans is known as the Hollywood South.
It’s significantly cheaper to film movies in New Orleans than in Los Angeles. Furthermore, it has a filmmaking-friendly, state-of-the-art infrastructure and a highly competent workforce. The state of Louisiana provides an impressive 40% tax credit on the total in-state production cost. Some of the projects that were filmed in New Orleans are ‘Django Unchained,’ ‘Captain Marvel,’ and ‘True Detective.’
Los Angeles, California
As the movie is set in Los Angeles, a considerable portion of filming was also carried out in the city. Los Angeles is the epicenter of the world’s entertainment industry. Even though it’s quite expensive to film there, movies like ‘Night Teeth,’ in which the City of Angels itself plays an important role, must be shot there for authenticity. Los Angeles has an interesting skyline, and ‘Night Teeth’ uses it to maximum effect to tell the story it wants. Projects like ‘Free Guy,’ ‘Black Widow,’ and ‘Malignant’ were also shot in the Lotusland.
