Stalked By My Doctor: Patient’s Revenge – Review
Stalked By My Doctor: Patient’s Revenge – Lifetime – 2 hours and 4 minutes
Dr. Beck was acquitted of all charges against him for the kidnapping and attempted murder of Sophie. He can’t practice medicine but was hired as a professor at Southeastern Arizona University (SAU). While his conscience tells him to ignore the young students in his class, he constantly fantasizes about them. He hopes he can start a new life but old habits die hard when he meets an eager student named Melissa. Meanwhile, in LA, Sophie still has the nightmares of her ordeal and can’t believe the jury didn’t send Dr. Beck to jail. Her parents hope college will be a new start but she has other plans. She lied to her parents about attending a local school and will be attending SAU. She plans to make Dr. Beck’s life a living nightmare.
The third movie in the Stalked by My Doctor series, this movie ups the crazy factor. It adds a subconscious, murder, and explosion. With a plot straight from of the ID channel, Melissa takes “ride or die chick” to a whole new level. While watching this movie, you worry about Sophie. Not as a victim but a perpetrator. She gets closer to getting arrested, expelled, or locked in a mental institution each time she goes after Dr. Beck. If you are a fan of this series, #3 will not disappoint. However, new fans should watch #1 before seeing #3. #2 is not necessary.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
You said you’d love me no matter what I told you – Dr. Beck

Hailey Dean: A Marriage Made for Murder – Review
Hailey Dean: A Marriage Made for Murder – HMM – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Well-respected art dealer Victor dies to leave behind an angry artist and a disconnected wife Christy. It’s not until Hailey hears Christy arguing over the phone that she starts to look into his death. Hailey learns the insurance company will not release the payment to Christy until they have a death certificate. So she goes to her boyfriend Jonas to get the certificate. Jonas finds out the nurse wanted an autopsy and the files are missing, so a certificate cannot be created. When Hailey goes to Christy to ask her to request Victor’s body be exhumed for an autopsy. Christy hands Hailey Victor’s ashes. Jonas looks through the ashes and finds a bone fragment. A fragment is loaded with arsenic. Victor’s death is now a murder. And by the end of this investigation, Hailey has to decide if she should do the right thing or follow the law.
Based on the Nancy Grace’s Hailey Dean novels, this addition fits in perfectly with the rest of the movies (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). While this 3 part series of movies focus on Hailey finding out who killed her fiance, each character has his or her own arc of growth. The bonds between each character grow stronger as you learn how deeply they cared for one another. And you will get a compelling mystery to boot. It comes down to the ultimate question of ethics for Hailey. What would you choose: Right or Law?
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

The Perfect Bride: Wedding Bells – Review
The Perfect Bride: Wedding Bells – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Molly has been giving her bridal boot camp for years at the local gym. But she wants to open her gym of her own. She is ready to take the next step in her career. While she makes advancements, Nick has switched from wedding photographer to gallery artist. His photos will be admired by all. With everything going on the right track, Nick gets on one knee and ask Molly to marry him. Without a second breath, she says yes. The two are happy to start planning their wedding until a mistake gives them only a few weeks to get everything together. And if things can’t get harder for Molly, she learns the only person who wants to invest in her new gym is Stephen. The man that left her at the altar. She must navigate a bumpy present and a messy past while advancing her career. Will Nick and Molly make it down the aisle?
The Perfect Bride will make your head spend in this new edition. Often, Molly has fixed the lives of others while ignoring her past issues. While she and Nick have talked about marriage, it hasn’t been at the forefront of any movie in the past. Now, the past and present will collide for long awaiting fans. While this does have its funny moments, it reaches a plateau and fails to entertain. It takes the focus off of the wedding planning and puts it all in Molly’s relationship with her ex. It feels as if the writers are trying to make him a major character. Molly’s past relationship should be just that, the past. Hopefully, this is the last of Stephen’s storyline.
I give it 3 out of 5 stars
Where’s Steven – Molly
Wow this guy sound really good looking. I should meet him sometime – Nick
Venue? Molly, I know you better than that – Stephen

Killer Mom – Review
Killer Mom – Lifetime – 2 hours and 2 minutes
Jessica is having a hard time. Her husband was just arrested for investment fraud, she lost her home and possessions, and she moved into her friend’s parent’s home. Her friend Simone made a statement that got her wheels turning. “At least we don’t have kids to work about”. Jessica had a daughter that she gave up for adoption and her biological father Cameron has millions. When it’s reported that Cameron (a widower) died in a plane crash, leaving his 2 daughters alone with an inheritance, she goes to see her daughter Alison. After losing both of her parents, Alison is quick to invite Jessica into their home. But her big sister Sydni doesn’t trust Jessica. Sydni ignores her instinct for her sister’s happiness. But when their “Uncle” Aaron is caught with child porn, their housekeeper’s mother is attacked, and drugs are found in Sydni’s car, Sydni knows Jessica is behind it all. But its what they don’t know that will surprise them all.
This movie is a guilty pleasure with twists and turns for Jessica, Alison, and Sydni. Within the first 5 minutes, your jaw will hit the floor with one bang. In 20 minutes, you will be sipping tea on all the family secrets. Jessica’s character is maniacally delicious. As she manipulates everyone in her path, you will countdown to who will fall next. Also, don’t be fooled by Sydni. She may come off as a typical Lifetime spoiled brat, but that works in her favor. While it’s not the ending you expect, it’s definitely satisfying. Be sure to watch this with snacks, tea, and time to give it your full attention.

The Stalker Club – Review
The Stalker Club – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Ashley left her friend Meredith behind for her new boyfriend Darren and his friends (Chloe, Sadie, Mark). Even though she hangs out with the group, she is still treated like an outsider. But during lunch, they discuss a text they all got asking them to join “The Stalker Club”. No one clicked the link before, so they all decide to join together. The game rules are:
- Draw a piece of paper from the hat. All but one will be marked a victim. The other is stalker
- If you get “stalker”, you have to stalk the others
- Stalkers are allowed to throw people off their scent
- If you unmask the stalker and you are wrong, you are out
- If you unmask the stalker and you are right, you win
- As soon as you join, you can’t tell anyone about “Stalker Club”
The club seems like a good idea, but Ashley is quickly scared by a mask, banging on the door, and text messages. She wants out but her friends think she is just being a wimp. So they start to work together to figure out who is the stalker. However, when the game goes too far and players are dying, Ashley (threaten by the group) still keeps the secret. What will it take for the group to ask for help? And who is the killer/stalker?
If you think you know who is the stalker, then you are most likely wrong. It doesn’t take too long for the body count to increase and accusation to fly among the group. As you get to know each group member, you learn they are all dealing with different issues (cutting, alcoholism, illness, criminal records). This is a fun watch for suspense lover but not horror. This is a Lifetime movie, so they can only have so much gore. And just when you think you figured out the stalker/killer, they will be killed. So don’t get attached. So DVR and watch in the daytime with the door locked. And yes, it looks like there will be a part two.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

The Psycho She Met Online – Review
The Psycho She Met Online – LMN – 2 hours and 0 minutes
After Karen’s husband Andrew has an accident, she looks through their finances. With Andrew unable to work, their house underwater, and maxed out credit cards, Karen knows her EMT job won’t cut it. She must find a way to make another income. Her friend Aubrey shows her that she can make $7500 a month by renting rooms in her home to vacationers looking to skip hotels. She is skeptical, but when she sees landlord reviews along with an easy payment system, she posts her rooms online. Within 24 hours, she has several renters. She weaves through the renters and her first selection is Miranda. Miranda is in town on business and wants to rent for a week. But that’s only what Miranda tells Karen. Miranda has been stalking Karen and Andrew online for months and uses this opportunity to get closer to them. Soon, she is placing hidden cameras, canceling other guest rental agreements, and stopping anyone who may come between her and the family.
This thrill ride is delicious. Especially if you like rooting for the psycho with an amazing wardrobe. In Lifetime movies, it seems to be standard that the best dress person is the craziest person. The difference in this movie is Karen’s response to finding out the truth about Miranda. She doesn’t give Miranda the benefit of the doubt, she just kicks her out. This is what you scream for in other movies. “She’s nuts, why do you keep forgiving her!!!” Not Karen. Her friend Aubrey is quick to see the crazy in Miranda as well. Having protagonist that are not idiots is great. Lifetime struck silver with this movie.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars
There you are. I finally found you – Miranda
Please give me good guest, soon – Karen
That you are. That you are – Andrew
No Karen needs to know what kind of liar you are – Aubrey
I don’t believe this. Ok, I’ll try – Tyler
Moonlight In Vermont – Review
Moonlight In Vermont – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Fiona loves the fast paced life of New York and her job in real estate. She’s juggling everything when her boyfriend Nate decides he has had enough and dumps her. Seeing Fiona is still hung up on her ex, her friend Angela tells her that they should take a vacation. Angela believes the best place to go is Fiona’s father’s B&B in Vermont. Even though she has issues with her dad, Fiona decides she needs to get away from lovestruck New Yorkers. Once in Vermont, Fiona still can’t slow down, which irritates everyone, including the new chef Derek. Derek thinks Fiona is a New York princess and she thinks he is a Vermont lumberjack. She tries to steer clear of the tightly wound chef and attends the Maple Fair with Angela. While at the fair, Fiona sees Derek cooking and Nate … with his new girlfriend Hailey. She is floored by Nate presence and quickly lies. She tells Nate that she is there with her boyfriend Derek. Derek doesn’t want to go with the lie but when Fiona offers her real estate skills to get him a coveted piece of land, he agrees. Derek and Fiona spend time together to keep up the ruse but will being fake make love real.
With the Moonlight in Vermont by Frank Sinatra playing it the background, this love story is typical. Two people can’t stand each other, have to deal with each other for a lie, make a deal, and fall in love. For Hallmark, this is the same story with a different location and a different fair. There is no real surprise in this movie. Even when Fiona and her father talk out their differences, it’s the same old song and dance. The story is not interesting, but the actors did a great job. This rating was only saved by the acting. DVR this movie and watch when you need background noise.
