Danger on Party Island Filming Locations

Where was Danger on Party Island filmed

Production for the movie began in December 2022 and wrapped up in early January 2023. The filming schedule was tight, lasting only a few weeks.

Tampa Bay Area (Florida)

Much of the on-location shooting occurred around the sunny Tampa Bay area to depict the fictional Fang Key Island setting. The diverse landscapes and beach towns of Pinellas County served as great stand-ins for a tropical locale.

Gloria’s Guinness Estate (Manalapan, FL)

The luxurious residence of the character Mel Dale was portrayed by Gloria’s Guinness Estate in Manalapan, Florida. This sprawling mansion provided the perfect backdrop for Mel’s wealthy lifestyle before her island misadventures begin.

Madeira Beach (Pinellas Country, FL)

Remember the scene where Mel chats with her mom on the phone and notices someone suspicious? That was filmed on the expansive, sandy shores of Madeira Beach. The wide-open landscape adds a sense of vulnerability to the scene.

The scene transitions to John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk, a lively waterfront area filled with shops and restaurants like the Pirates Pub & Grub seen in the background.

John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk

As a prime filming site, John’s Pass deserves a spotlight of its own. Located at 12945 Village Boulevard, this historic village offers quintessential Florida charm. The iconic boardwalk runs along the waterfront, lined with boutiques, art galleries, eateries, and more.

It served as the perfect setting for those ominous sequences of Mel being followed. The producers likely chose John’s Pass for its photogenic looks and tax incentives offered in Pinellas County.

Generally, small budget movies are filmed in Canada. Here’re some of the recent Lifetime movies that were filmed in Canada: Killing For Extra Credit, Hunting Housewives, Crimes of Fashion, and Killing All My Sisters.
