Mike Flanagan has become a maestro of the horror genre over the past few years if the past few years have taught us anything.
Since 2018, Flanagan has provided Netflix subscribers with four terrifying episodes, including The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass. The most recent is The Midnight Club, which follows a group of young adults living in a spooky hospice.
Where was The Midnight Club filmed, and is Brightcliffe Hospice a real location?

Where Was the Midnight Club Filmed?
The Midnight Club was filmed in and around the British Columbia city of Burnaby and the broader Vancouver area.
Production on the project began on March 15, 2021, and lasted around six months, concluding on September 10, 2021.
The series was filmed primarily at The Bridge Studios, which is located at 2400 Boundary Road in Burnaby and features an astonishing 13 sound stages.
According to the local news website Delta Optimist, further locales included in the series include Ladner Village, a 20-minute drive from Vancouver, and Ladner United Church.
Moreover, the Spanish Banks beaches in Vancouver played a significant role in the beach sequences of the series, while the neighboring city of Surrey also hosted some filming.
Fans expecting to engage in eerie tourism may be disappointed to hear that Brightcliffe Hospice is a fictional location constructed for the series. Even the building’s name has been altered since it was originally referred to as Rotterham Home.
Other Productions Filmed in Burnaby
Thanks to financial incentives provided by the local government, Burnaby and the broader Vancouver area have become extremely popular movie locations in recent years.
As a result, Vancouver has earned the nickname “Hollywood North“
IMDb reports that more than 700 films have been produced in Burnaby, with prominent projects including Supernatural, The Good Doctor, Netflix’s Devil in Ohio, Virgin River, Yellowjackets, and Jurassic World Dominion in 2022.
In addition, Mike Flanagan’s past series, including The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass, were all shot in and around the city.
The Midnight Club is currently available to view on Netflix following its release on October 7, 2022.
