“What would you give me for a basket of hugs?” Rob Lowe asks as the doting single-dad in Lifetime’s The Bad Seed movie. His daughter Emma smiles. “A basket of kisses!”
When he leaves the room, she turns to the mirror and practices the line some more. “A basket of kisses! A basket of kisses!” I probably would’ve gotten a chill during that scene if I hadn’t been distracted by the pretty house it was filmed in.
They shot The Bad Seed remake on location in this beautiful shingle-style house in Langley, British Columbia (Canada). It was on the market recently, so let’s take a look inside!
The House from “The Bad Seed”
Rob Lowe directed the remake. I found it fairly entertaining, and the house held my attention, but it didn’t get great reviews. Indie Wire called it “A Basket of Misses.”
Here’s how the front of the house looked in the listing photos:
In the movie, David (Lowe) says this is an old house that he and his wife bought as newlyweds and remodeled it together.
But the real house is a fairly new one, built in 2016.
*UPDATE: I just learned that the house belonged to blogger Monika Hibbs!
No wonder it’s so fabulous. You can see photos of it on her Instagram page, too.
She wrote me to let me know all the design was her own, and the architecture was by Su Casa.
For the movie, they constructed a wall with bookshelves that divided the kitchen from the family room:
In the listing photos you can see the shelves aren’t there and the rooms are open to each other:
There are only two chairs at the kitchen table, for father and daughter:
I just kept taking screenshots of the kitchen because I liked it so much.
The kitchen in the listing:
They used a different table and chairs in the movie and swapped out the light fixture over the eating area for something less dramatic. But the window treatments were the same.
The Family Room looked smaller onscreen because we couldn’t see the rest of it:
In the listing we can see the ceilings are vaulted, and it’s open to the kitchen:
Mckenna Grace, who played Emma, also stars in The Haunting of Hill House. You can read my post about it here.
There are four bedrooms in the listing:
David’s bedroom was a dark gray onscreen:

The Bedroom and Bath in the Listing:
The listing said:
Architecture by the award winning Su Casa Design, this home has it all! Real hardwood floors (wide plank white oak), marble throughout including Colorado Gold Calcutta countertops, Thermador appliances, custom millwork, custom window treatments, 15′ California LaCantina doors perfect for indoor/outdoor living, custom limestone mantel with hidden TV above, and built-in speakers throughout.
The Laundry Room:
There are a lot of options for outdoor living here, too, which I love:
Rob Lowe says The Bad Seed is more of an “unsettling” thriller than a straight-up horror movie.
*NOTE: Lifetime Movie Network is airing The Bad Seed again on Friday, Nov. 2, at 8 pm (ET).*
