If you watched Lifetime’s “Death Saved My Life” last month, you may have thought some scenes looked rather familiar. Like the one where the main character – thought to be dead – roams some suburban, tree-lined streets. The reason it looked so familiar? It was Haddonfield.

This based-on-a-true-story film tells the tale of a woman, played by actress Meagan Good, who fakes her own death after her husband hires a hitman to kill her. No, this real-life horror story didn’t happen in Haddonfield. Producers were originally planning to film in North Jersey, but when they went to the NJ Motion Picture and Television Commission looking for a perfect small-town setting for the film, the commission sent them straight to Haddonfield in fall of 2020.

The movie is a part of Lifetime’s “Ripped from the Headlines” series, which produces films based on true stories that made national news.
