The producers of the movie, New Mutants needed a special place that provided the right atmosphere to shoot the movie. The good news was that they found the perfect place. A large part of the movie was shot at the Medfield State Hospital, just outside Boston, Massachusetts. One special thing about the location was that it used to be a psychiatric facility. It was the perfect place to shoot the movie but according to Henry Zaga, it was also very creepy.
So, last week I decided to ask Henry Zaga what he thought about the place as a movie location. He said, "Not with me, but a lot of people had some crazy stories that happened to them. Dude, I was having so much fun. I was having a blast; I was the class clown as [my character] Roberto and as Henry like truly I'm having a great time. But now and again I'd get a smell of something really weird that wasn't like anything I've ever smelled before in my life. And I'm like, 'What is it here? What is this? There's something here right now.'"
