So, here we are bringing you a plot overview while also discussing the filming locations of the Netflix film Deadly Illusions.
With some thrill blended with horror and tension, Deadly Illusions is the perfect match for a mood of mystery. Rarely is a movie made much clunkier than “Deadly Illusions,” an unconvincing mishmash of psychodrama and erotic thriller crammed with silly plot holes, obvious dialogue, and notably bad actions and reactions? The scenes take you through each and every stage of curiosity and tension. Let’s find out the filming location of Deadly Illusions.
Mary Morrison and her happy family is the star attraction in this movie. Mary is a successful thriller author and has many popular novels published. She is married to Tom with two loving kids. Her main chore now is her kids, which is a great hindrance in her work. Her publisher offered her a two million dollar check in advance to write a new book which she refused to do earlier. But as her friend Elaine came up with the idea of hiring a nanny, she accepted the book. According to Elaine, the nanny would take care of the kids while Mary was writing. They found the best match for the perfect nanny and hired Grace.
Mary eventually made a loving affinity with Grace and used her writer’s blog to inspire her. But all of a sudden, Mary started having sexual fantasies about Grace. It was hard for Mary to tell that whether the fantasies were real or just some dream. Mary started imagining Grace indulging in a sexual relationship with Tom but again was not sure about it. She wanted to be sure about all these dreams, were they real or just some vivid dreams. But that came out in a negative way, and Mary lashed out in front of everyone and created an awkward situation at the dinner table. The children got annoyed and left the room. This created a gap between Mary and Grace.
Mary tried to loosen the tension between her and Grace. She tried to apologize to Grace the next morning and confronted that she lashed out because of the stress of working too much. Meanwhile, Mary was curious to know the reason for Grace not receiving her paycheck. She called the nanny agency to find out that the original nanny never joined. The agency informed Mary that the nanny had not yet replied about her choice of a nanny. Mary speculated that about the nanny who is working at her house, Grace and the agency refused to have any registration with that name.
Mary immediately hurried to Elaine and found her dead in her apartment. Elaine had been brutally killed with scissors stabbed in her neck. What’s more intriguing is that the same story is the one Mary is working on right now. Mary hurried to the police and found out that she was the main suspect. The police informed Mary that according to the CCTV camera footage, a girl just like Mary left the apartment the same day. Although, the face of the girl leaving the building was obscured with a headscarf and sunglasses.
Mary was curious about Grace and decided to visit her hometown. She visited her aunt, who told her that Grace had a traumatic past. Grace’s parents used to abuse her as a kid, which had a major impact on Grace’s behavior. Grace also had odd behavior and sometimes claimed to be someone else. This totally scared Mary, and she rushed to her home. On her way home, Mary tried calling Tom several times to inform him about the nanny. But all the calls went unanswered, which put Mary in serious tension. And something was going on in the house. While Tom is taking a shower, Grace walks in dressed in lingerie with a big knife in her hand.
And soon enough, Tom understands that something is wrong with Grace. While Tom is trying to escape from the situation, Grace is seen switching her personality from a soft-toned self to a violent seducer with a deep voice. Mary arrived at the last moment and stopped Grace from attacking Tom. Grace suddenly got her consciousness and claimed to be under someone’s influence. Repeatedly saying, “I couldn’t stop her,” Grace revealed the other identity residing in her. Mary suffers from a dissociative identity disorder and is sometimes under the spell of her other identity, ‘Margret ‘. Margret is the one who is trying to attack Tom. Mary somehow manages to knock Grace or Margret unconscious.
One year later, the family is happily living life together. Mary decided to visit Grace in a mental asylum. Here is the plot twist. Mary came out of the hospital, just like the girl who came out after killing Elaine.
