The filming locations of a movie or TV series can often be key to a film’s success as a real place caught on camera is often appreciated much more than a green screen set and a digitally-created environment.

Starring Freida Pinto and Logan Marshall-Green, Intrusion is the newest thriller to make its way onto Netflix and it sees a married couple move from the city of Boston to the house of their dreams.

Intrusion features some stunning filming locations throughout but just where was the Netflix thriller filmed?

Intrusion release date and plot

Intrusion crept its way onto Netflix on September 22nd, 2021.

The film tells the story of married couple Henry and Meera, the latter recovering from a recent bout of breast cancer, who leave their life in the city of Boston to start afresh in a huge and remote house designed by Henry himself.

However, the life of peace and quiet that the couple had been hoping for is instantly shattered when the house is broken into, leaving Meera traumatised and questioning whether she really knows her husband.


Where was Intrusion filmed?

Intrusion was filmed in several locations across the state of New Mexico.

The movie was primarily filmed in the city of Albuquerque and the neighbouring suburb of Corrales.

Henry and Meera’s house is the central location in the film and was likely filmed nearby to the Sandia Resort and Casino in Corrales, offering up stunning views of the New Mexico desert and mountains.

Production on Intrusion took place in late 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 meaning that the crew had to abide by strict restrictions to help filming go smoothly.


Other productions film in Albuquerque

As well as hosting Intrusion’s cast and crew, the New Mexico city of Albuquerque has featured as a location in well over 1,000 films and TV shows over the years.

This hardly comes as much of a surprise as the state of New Mexico offers grants and tax credits to incentivise productions to film there.

Some of the biggest productions to have filmed in and around Albuquerque include Breaking Bad and its spin-off Better Call Saul, Stranger Things, Sicario, No Country for Old Men and the newly released film Copshop.


Intrusion is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on September 22nd, 2021.
