Bingo Hell is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video after almost a year making the film. The next question everyone wants to know is – where was the horror filmed?
Part of the Welcome To The Blumhouse series, the movie is directed and co-written by Saul Guerrero and co-executive produced by Shima.
Days before the movie’s debut on Amazon Prime, Shima and Guerrero showcased Bingo Hell at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.

Where was Bingo Hell filmed?
Bingo Hell was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana. Filming began on 11 February 2021.
Although the movie was filmed last winter, it has only been edited in Surrey, England, in the past few months.
Production was delayed by the covid-19 pandemic, which affected the filming schedule.
“Nobody knew what the world had in store for anybody, and we’re lucky this (movie) still became a thing,” Saul Guerrero said in an interview with North Delta Reporter.
“We were a bit sad at first, this being (production company) Luchagore’s first movie, and then covid hits and maybe it’s never going to happen. But it worked out, and here we are.”

Horror film plot explored
Lupita, aka Adriana Barraza, and her group of friends are at the centre of the Oak Springs community. Lupita and Dolores, played by L Scott Caldwell, are lifelong best friends who live in the same neighbourhood. They are dedicated to protecting it from being gentrified.
But when Mr Big (Richard Brake) shows up and threatens to alter the whole neighbourhood including destroying the bingo hall, Lupita, Dolores and the community do everything they can to stop him.
The town has definitely seen better days but with the pensioners standing in Mr Big’s way, the supernatural comes into play!
