If you enjoyed the countryside aesthetics of Beaverfield and wish to learn more about the mystifying town, the filming details of the movie should quench your curiosity. Here’s everything you need to know about the locations featured in ‘Werewolves Within.’
Werewolves Within Filming Locations
Principal photography on ‘Werewolves Within’ began in February 2020 and was likely wrapped up in a matter of 25 days. The film’s primary setting, Beaverfield, is a fictional town, and the movie was filmed on location mainly in the Hudson Valley region of New York. Let’s take a detailed look at the movie’s filming sites.
Hudson Valley, New York
Hudson Valley is located near the Hudson River and is the primary filming location of the movie. The exterior scenes of the town of Beaverfield were filmed across the region, but mainly in the Catskill Mountains (or simply The Catskill), a mountain range that is part of the greater Appalachian Mountains in southeastern New York.
Filming took place in Phoenicia, a hamlet near the Catskills in the Ulster County region. Interior scenes were likely filmed at the town’s community theatre known as Phoenicia Playhouse. Some scenes were also filmed in Woodstock, which lies within Catskill Park, also a part of Ulster County.
Both towns are popular vacation spots for the people of New York due to the wide variety of outdoor activities they offer. The Catskills is a prime hub for artists, musicians, and writers. The stand-up comedy circuit of the region is also very popular among comedians and audiences across the country.
Some portions of the movie were also shot in Kingston, Ulster County, which is also the county seat. The cast and crew likely also filmed some sequences in and around Catskill Park, a well-known forest preserve.
Fleischmanns, New York
Fleischmanns is a small village in Delaware County. It is one of the locations the cast and crew visited for filming the movie. The village has a measly population and a countryside aesthetic making it an ideal filming destination for a horror-comedy movie. Fleischmanns was formerly a part of Ulster County, and its proximity to the towns mentioned above makes it an even more suitable filming spot.
