Seven Psychopaths (2012)

The 2012 Martin McDonagh ensemble film “Seven Psychopaths” was filmed around Southern California.  The opening scenes were filmed at the Mullholland Dam in Hollywood.  The dam is accessible to the public, however, it does require a minor walk to reach it.  You have to drive up Weidlake Drive and the nearest parking is at the Hollywood Reservoir Trailhead.  From there it’s just a short distance on foot. The same location was featured in the film “The Little Things.”

The market where Roy shops and takes an interest in the cashier is Fields Market in Canoga Park.  In the film, the market is called Cambridge Farms, which was in fact the name of the business at the time, before later changing names.  The store is a staple of film and television, appearing in such films as “Bird Box” and “Lady Bird,” as well as such television shows as “Desperate Housewives,” “American Horror Story” and dozens more.  It has also been seen in countless commercials and music videos.
