Spoilers: Yeah, but so does the trailer

So Jennifer is in a terrible accident one dark and rainy night. Her husband rushes to the hospital. He learns that she has amnesia. He promises to care for her and stay by her side as long as it takes for her to remember because he is madly in love with her. He takes her to their estate in the middle of nowhere. Jennifer quickly begins to notice that something isn’t right. She has strange, violent flashbacks. She begins snooping around as much as she can while limping about. It doesn’t take long for her loving husband to become aggressive- grabbing her arm, verbally abusing her, demanding sex, locking her in the bedroom, chaining her to the bed, etc. Meanwhile, the officer investigating the case has his own suspicions and begins following leads. He discovers that Jennifer’s husband is actually a former co-worker that is obsessed with her. He killed her parents and husband. With them out of the way, he orchestrated the accident and then assumed the role of her husband. Now Jennifer must survive long enough for the officer to rescue her.

Rating: D-

Is it worth watching: Maybe if you like bad Lifetime movies but I wouldn’t encourage it. The trailer told the whole plot. There were no surprises at all. Jennifer was not exactly a damsel-in-distress type but she also wasn’t a badass so I can’t claim that as a redeeming quality. I do want to know why a gunshot wound to the chest didn’t stop the guy but a second one to his abdomen killed him immediately…..because not only have I taken personal defense classes, I am a medical professional, and something seems a little off there. Anyway, there’s much better ways to spend an hour and thirty-seven minutes so unless this type of thing is really your jam, pass one this movie.

Once upon a time, Sharon was invited to attend a comic convention. She had always wanted to go to a comic-con but thought it was out of her reach. While at this convention, she met Richard who asked her if she could write. She scoffed. Of course she was capable of writing. But then he clarified and asked if she would be willing to a be a writer for TBK Magazine. She agreed. Little did she know that she was signing on to become a podcaster, assistant editor of the magazine, Vice President of a publishing company, best mensch, and a sister. Her whole world would expand for the better after that trip in 2016. She would be forever grateful. The magazine would be her safe haven and the staff would become a part of her family. And still to this day, Richard has not fulfilled his promise of singing the cow song to Sharon.   Sharon was born in mid 1980’s and raised in Northeastern Arkansas. She has been married to her childhood sweetheart, Jesse, since 2004. They have two amazing sons. Outside of her official TBK responsibilities, she works as a nurse.   She loves theater, costumes, cosplay, and Halloween. She is addicted to Chapstick and will ALWAYS have at least one with her at all times. She despises spiral staircase, escalators, and people that do not understand how four way stops work.
