There’s a saying that no good deed goes unpunished. It is valid for the couple who are at the center of Lifetime’s thriller, ‘Black Hearted Killer.’ The premise follows Julie and Dennis, who are devastated when their daughter dies. However, they decide to do the world a favor and donate her organs. Furthermore, they opt out of initiating any contact with the recipients but keep a channel open in case any of the recipients want to reach out to them. Soon enough, a woman named Vera reaches out to Julie, expressing her gratitude at receiving the couple’s daughter’s heart.
Initially, the couple spends some time with Vera, but she starts to cross boundaries and brings disorder to their lives. A lot of the action that plays out is dependant on the setting. It might make you wonder where ‘Black Hearted Killer’ has been filmed. We are here to tell you that and walk you through the cast.
Where Was Black Hearted Killer Filmed?
‘Black Hearted Killer’ is likely to have filmed in Los Angeles, California. A lot of Lifetime movies opt to shoot there because LA has a stellar studio system, which aids in the production process. Moreover, the city is home to one of the most thriving movie industries in the world.
Thus, skilled professionals are always available to assist in filming. Moreover, filming in Los Angeles is pragmatic for some small budget projects, as overhead costs of transportation for cast and crew can be avoided. That said, most of the filming in Los Angeles is likely to have taken place indoors, in ‘Black Hearted Killer.’
From what we understand, filming has taken place within the city, in a residential neighborhood. You can check out the photo shared from the set.

That’s me between the pretty blondes. My first day on a new project tackling a new kind of role, and my first time jumping into full on fight choreography – thank goodness I was surrounded by a skilled team of Stunt Coordinators and good sports! Very excited to share more of this one soon. 🖤 @ninthhousefilms @autumnfederici @roxyshih @tmstunts 📷: @elizabethobaker
