Saturday nights are make for snacks, pajamas, and a relaxing date on your couch as you dive into dramatic flick. And you know you can always depend on Life to deliver all the murder, mayhem, and suspense you can handle each weekend. The network's latest movie, Killer Next Door, isn't based on a true story, but it paints evil portrait of a vengeful sister-in-law. Per Lifetime's description, Andrea Bogart plays Julie, who recently lost her husband in a tragic car accident. She decided to relocate with their son Matty for a fresh start and to build a relationship with her sister-in-law Alison. The Trio becomes tight-knit, but Julie doesn't know that Alison blames her for her brother's death and wants to get her out of the picture so she can have Matty all to herself. Ummm, yikes. It's typical Lifetime movie plot with all the twist-fill drama that has kept fans glued to their TVs for decades. And because it's completely fictional, you don't have to feel bad about being super judgmental when characters inevitably make bad decisions. Sadly, there's no Killer Next Door trailer, but it's not too hard to imagine how everything will go down. Julie was likely driving when she got into an accident that take her husband's life. She probably didn't want to face scrutiny from people in her current town, so she decided to move across the country to start over. She likely had little to no relationship with Alison prior to moving out there, but she really wanted to connect with her sister-in-law because they are both in pain right now. And there was probably one good reason Julie's husband moved so far away from his sister in the first place. He already knew she was Lifetime movie-grade suspicious. But poor Julie becomes extremely close to Alison nonetheless, and Alison becomes obsessed with her nephew, Matty. Alison is delusional and sees so much of her twin brother in Matty that she wants to get Julie out of the picture and rekindle the sibling bond she's now missing out on. It remains to be seen if Alison will hurt others who try to intervene, but there's definitely going to be a showdown between Alison and Laura as they fight over Matty. Who will win? Well, protagonist usually comes out on top, so it's not looking too good for Alison. In the end, Alison will either end up dead or behind bars and Julie will probably have to move yet again. Of course, there will be other characters and a couple of interesting subplots in the mix, but, generally speaking, this is probably how the main conflict will play out. Life movies can sometimes be super predictable, but at this point, they're like the film equivalent of comfort food just, you know, with a lot of murder and drama. How will it all end? Find out when Killer Next Door premiers March 30 at 8 pm ET.

Reveal

Desperation brings six people to a decaying Victorian apartment house where tenants' desolation pales in comparison with one neighbor's despicable acts. Alex Marwood's second stand-alone novel delivers a multilayered plot that succeed as crime fiction, gothic tale and village mystery all with edge. With apartment buildings substituting for village, Killer Next Door balances a shrewd look at people living on the edge of society with a deliciously creepy look at murderer. While London's Northbourne area is gentrifying fast, that renewal hasn't reached 23 Beulah Grove, where vile odors seep from pipes that are constantly clog. But residents crave anonymity, and they are willing to tolerate no upkeep and disgusting landlord. Collette has evaded police and her former boss, whom she witnessed murdering a man, for three years, thanks to her new identity. Teenager Cher Farrell scrapes by with petty thefts and scams. Refuge Hossein Zanjani escaped Iran's politics. Vesta Collins, who was born in the building, wonders why, at 69, she stay. The Tenants also include music teacher Gerard Bright and Thomas Dunbar, who works part-time. They live in such close proximity that they know each other's personal habits, but they aren't friends. However, they're forced to unite when plumbing backs up with strange substance, followed by a turn of events in which it's vital that they protect one another's secrets. The plot is full of clever twists that continue to surprise finale. While some scenes are gruesome enough to give Thomas Harris pause, Killer Next Door is lyrically insightful. And the author's decision to reveal the identity of the murderer about three-quarters of the way through the tale only enhances the story. Marwood, Edgar Award winner for Wicked Girls, again excels in this gripping thriller.

Media Reviews

In November, 2018, Colorado resident Christopher Watts plead guilty to murdering his pregnant wife, Shanann, and their two daughters, then disposing of bodies in an industrial oil field near their suburban home. It is precisely the kind of gruesome story of a seemingly idyllic American Family that inspires prime time news specials and true crime obsessions. What followed were televised exposes, Dr. Phil interviews and even a dramatized Lifetime movie. The new Netflix documentary American Murder: Family Next Door, authorized by the victims ' family, takes a less sensational approach, providing something more haunting and searching about story. Films power rests on British filmmaker Jenny Popplewells decision to eschew the traditional form of televised crime documentary datelines, dramatic narrator and emotional interviews to construct a narrative entirely out of archival footage. Shananns incessant social media updates, her video confessionals and text messages with her husband form central material of the film narrative. Those elements eventually collide with police body camera footage and polygraph surveillance video of Christopher's confession. The result is a film that feels eerily intimate but also expansive enough to reflect the distance between online performance of happy marriage and the devastating truth of relationships unraveling. Ive struggle with this genre of storytelling and whether the voyeuristic attraction of such a gruesome tragedy justifies watching. But Popplewells film presents Watts ' story as more than a crime story. It is a thematic film about marriage and deception of social media, as well as a piercing examination of domestic violence constructed with care and undeniable craft. American Murder: Family Next Door not rat. Running time: 1 hour 22 minutes.
