THE LOCATION Alice is one of the last films to be shoot in Linda Vista Community Hospital before it is turned into condos. A place full of memories and tragic incidents, Linda Vista was the perfect match for the filmmakers. The location plays out as a character in itself, an antagonist that captures children and confronts them in their darkest hours.
