Did You Know?


Filming took place over a 34 day period during the fall of 2019 in New York's Hudson Valley, where the plot is also set. Forty local crew members were hired and over 500 background extras were booked through Hudson Valley Casting. Tech City (former IBM HQ) in the Town of Ulster was rented for months as the qualified production facility and for administrative office space. Over 4400 rooms were booked at regional hotels and the local spend was north of $13-million. Locations were used throughout the region thanks to the talent of (location manager) Kurt Enger and his crew, including Myna Joseph. Featured locations in the film were found in Millerton, Red Hook, Tivoli, Kingston, Palenville and the Town of Ulster, in Dutchess and Ulster Counties NY. See more »


When George leans over the hood of his car to examine the blood drips, he then receives the third drip on his face. One would not lean over, then crane their neck sideways in that position, but rather stand and look upward. This was likely done for dramatic effect. See more »

Had potential
1 May 2021 | by mercerisSee all my reviews

I gave the first 2/3 of the movie a 5 star rating. I thought it had potential as the story unfolded, but, I have no idea why it ended up in the direction that it did. Totally took away from the movie. I gave the ending one star, for WTH?!?
