The Wrong House
The Wrong House – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
After a long move from NY to LA, Rebecca and Brian want to settle into their new home and get to know their neighbors. They even consider adding another child to their family. Their home feels like a dream come true until food, they didn’t order, gets delivered. They laugh it off as a prank and decide to ignore it. But when a prank threatens their child, the realize they have a real problem. Soon Rebecca finds another women’s underwear in her bed and suspects Brian has a rejected mistress, who is causing all their problems. Rebecca kicks Brian out, but he knows he’s innocent. Brian is determined to get his family and his home back by finding who set him up and why.
Any Lifetimer may roll their eyes when they see “The Wrong …” in a title, but give this one a chance. There will be several dead bodies, several weapons, and a dead rat. This movie, inspired by real events, is a great story. The father is not clueless and the mother isn’t an automatic hero. Plus, you know who the killer is, so you can countdown to the “discovery of crazy”. This this movie a chance.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
That’s an understatement – Maddie
Mentioned or Threatened – Brian
This is ridiculous – Rebecca
Nobody likes a nosy neighbor – Kathleen
Bad Twin – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
After being attacked by Cassie, Jen – a therapist – is concerned about her Cassie’s mental health. Jen knows her sister needs help not jail. While Cassie is in a mental institution, Jen decides to help by taking care of her twin nieces, Olivia and Quinn. Its obvious that Olivia is the dominant, outspoken twin. While Quinn, is the passive, thoughtful twin. Once in Jen’s home, the twins feel immediate separation anxiety from each other (because of separate rooms) and their mom. But Jen doesn’t now how deep their love for their mom lies. First, they attempt to make Jen sick to punish her for tearing their family apart. But when the twins see they are left out of Jen’s will, its proof she doesn’t love them. When they show Cassie the will, she sees a clause that gives her another idea. Get the girls adopted, so they can inherit. Jen’s life is on a ticking clock. Tick Tock.
This movie is a display of how intense a sister bond can be. It can be all consuming, destructive, and nurturing. These “twin” girls are the Shining twins all grown up (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). The actress does well displaying both twins different personalities in the way she talks and their posture. Its not long before you can tell them apart. Be prepared to yell at Jen for being so naive and not heeding her love ones warning. The plot is 85% predictable but still fun to watch.
I give it 3.5 out of 5

Turbulence – Review
Turbulence – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
After Senator Johnson is caught killing a girl on surveillance video, Sarah must go to DC and fight the case. She says goodbye to Ken and Jacob (her husband and son respectively) and head on the flight. Once settle a late passenger, Michelle, boards the plan and starts chatting away. Sarah makes small talk until she learns Michelle’s real motive. Michelle works for Senator Johnson and her associate, Cameron, is holding Ken and Jacob captive. Michelle wants Sarah to delete the video from the FBI database before the 5 hour flight ends or her family is dead. There is sure to be some turbulence on this flight.
Get ready to feel every emotion possible. You will laugh, get excited, get angry, and have relief before this movie is done. Michelle is so bad, it’s too good. She will leave a chill down your spine with her Harley Quinn mentality. Sarah goes from alpha female to momma bear in a split second to do her job and save her family. With a ride that includes close calls, spilled water, and battery life, you won’t soon forget it. Turbulence 2, anyone?
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

Yeah, I scare myself sometimes – Michelle

The Perfect Stalker – Review
The Perfect Stalker – Lifetime – 2 hours and 0 minutes
After a crazy outburst during dinner, Harvey decides to get his wife, Grace, help. During the session, he learns a hard truth. Grace has Histrionic Personality Disorder (or HPD). The therapist warns that she will acted out sexually and have unhealthy attachments that could be dangerous. Grace is furious that Harvey took her to a doctor and handles him with one big shock. She moves to Philadelphia where she meets a handsome stranger, Robert. She knows Robert loves her and tries to track him down; but comes to learn he is next door … with a girlfriend, Erin. She starts on a plan to take him, but overhears that Robert may be moving because of Erin’s new promotion. Grace panics and decides to keep Robert next door … by any means necessary.
This story may seem far fetched but it could happen. The Perfect Stalker is actually has 2 stalkers. You will spend this movie wondering ‘what will she do next’, ‘how crazy can she get’, and ‘when will they figure out she is nuts’. Like most Lifetime movies. This is a decent ride with a good body count. Not completely perfect but fun to watch.
I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars
Now you keep your sanity – Grace
Are you hurt? Did he hurt you? – Robert
Grace? – Erin

If you are looking for a high body count movie, this isn’t it. This is more of a suspense movie, a Snapped episode come to life. Jessica is a true Femme Fatale in every word. You may even root for her. With drop dead gorgeous looks, a great body, and a power over men, she could take over the world. It can be rough to watch Faith, because being in the friend zone sucks. You want her to become powerful and stand up for herself. Just keep watching. Tell me Team Jessica or Team Faith?
