Their Killer Affair – Review
Their Killer Affair – Lifetime – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Simon drags his girlfriend, Detective Max, to Jen’s grand opening because Jen is Max’s best friend. Jen started the store with the help of her husband, Greg. Jen states she became bored of being a kept woman, so she decided to start a business. During the opening, Max gets a strange video message. The masked person warns her that he will bring deception to the light. She believes her partner, Nick, sent the message. She forgets about it until they get called on a new case. Tom was found dead by strangulation with a charm around his neck. During Max and Nick’s interview with Tom’s wife, Sarah, they learn he was a gambling addict. But when they interview the house manager, Francis, they learn Tom wasn’t addicted to gambling. He was addicted to sex. As they continue the investigation, Max and the precinct get more video messages warning them about more killings. Soon, a pastor is found dead with slashes all over his body. A killer whipped the pastor to death and put a charm around his neck. His wife said her husband loved BDSM and hired women to hit him frequently. Their investigation of the two killings leads them to a website that caters to people trying to find an extramarital affair. The owner refuses to shut it down or give up her client list. The Charm Killer directs his next message for Max. She tries to brush it off until her ex-husband, Ryan, is found dead. During their 15-year marriage, he repeatedly cheated on her. With the personal message and killing, Max’s boss believes the Charm Killer is someone she knows. Is her boyfriend Simon, her friend Jen, Jen’s husband Greg, or could it be her partner Nick? You will have to watch to figure it out.
This movie is a different type of Lifetime movie because it is a full murder mystery with kinky sex, adultery, an intriguing killer, a distinctive signature, and a horrible friend. You will be engaged because the body count is high with motivated kills. Though Max is strong in her relationship, her friendship is toxic. It’s easy to blame Max, but keep this in mind, it took Max 15 years to leave her cheating husband. It may take longer for her to drop a horrible friend. However, that toxic friendship is necessary for the plot. So before you yell at Max, bite your tongue and watch. It will be a good payoff.
