The Wrong Son is on the right network with Lifetime!

The Wrong Son Lifetime

Samwise Gamgee has returned and he’s angry!

I’ve loved creepy movies about returning long lost evil sons who may or may not be fake ever since I saw grown up Ricky Schroder return with anger issues in the made-for-tv movie The Stranger Within as a child. The Wrong Son continues that tradition with a returned from the dead son and lots of suspicious accidents. Plus it’s got Olivia d’Abo, so we can all pretend it is a sequel to The Wonder Years!

Thirteen years after disappearing and presumed drowned, Matt returns home to his mother Sarah. Suspicions grow when her older son Ian is injured in a car accident similar to the one that recently killed his father. Is this really Sarah’s missing son and is he seeking a loving home or revenge?

The Wrong Son stars Olivia d’Abo, Tammy Blanchard, Dan Amboyer, and Paloma Guzmán. It’s directed by Asylum-alum Nick Everhart and the story is by Shane O’Brien (a producer, this appears to be his first writing credit).

The Wrong Son premieres Sunday, June 17th on Lifetime!

Psycho Ex-Girlfriend breaks up with Lifetime!

Psycho Ex-Girlfriend Lifetime

No, no, it’s “Love is Blind”, not “Stalk your love behind blinds!”

Psycho Ex-Girlfriend (formerly known as Twisted, but that wasn’t Lifetime enough for Lifetime!) is about a lady who returns from rehab in order to get back her boyfriend. But he’s set on marrying a normal girl who doesn’t go to rehab, which is enough to cause conflict of the Lifetime variety! What a jerk, not immediately dropping his life! Also the ex-girlfriend even hires Tyler’s new girlfriend as a therapist and tells her all about the good sex she had with Tyler, this seems to be a very important plot point according to the trailer. Either way, this looks like a tight Lifetime thriller!

Kara and Tyler are planning to getting married when Tyler’s ex-girlfriend returns from rehab, adamant on winning him back. As Kara tries to protect her relationship and prevent Tyler from sliding back into his bad habits, she is pulled into a twisted game of cat and mouse.

Psycho Ex-Girlfriend stars Elisabeth Harnois, Morgan Kelly (Killjoys!!!), Kimberly-Sue Murray, and Thomas Mitchell. It’s directed by Philippe Gagnon, who regularly helms Incendo Productions that end up on Lifetime like Running for Her Life. It’s written by Barbara Kymlicka (Double Daddy!) so it must be awesome as heck!

Psycho Ex-Girlfriend premieres Saturday, June 16th on Lifetime!

Lifetime’s Prescription for Danger makes waiting at the pharmacy seem like a breeze!

Prescription for Danger

This must be that alternative medicine I’ve heard so much about!

Lifetime knows the cures for what ails you is what ails you, mainly awful doctors. This time, an innocent business woman is at the mercy of a doctor who is being a jerk! I’m not exactly sure what he’s going to do, as the synopsis is vague, but you can be assured that the male doctor with the generically sinister name is up to no good. Instead of HMO, you’ll want to scream HM-NOOOOOOO!!! Actually, HMOs make you do that, anyway. No matter how awful these doctors are, real life healthcare in the US is much worse!

Ivy Fisher is at the top of her game; A whip-smart, devastatingly attractive upstart business owner. She is your typical thirtysomething, with a stalled personal life and overactive career. But during a crucial investor meeting, Ivy’s body begins to fail her. Plagued with an onset of dizziness and a crippling headache, Ivy crashes. Enter Dr. Mark Ryan – a corrupt doctor ready to feed his desire for power, and Ivy is his perfect subject. This rock-hard business woman is now about to confront her mortality. But much to Ivy’s shock, she is about to find out that Dr. Ryan, a person she trusts, has the recipe to finally break her.

Prescription for Danger stars Joanne Kelly, Shaun Benson, Genelle Williams, Alysa King, Kate McIninch, and Sean Tucker. It’s written by James Phillips (Kept Woman) and directed by Caroline Labrèche. It premieres Sunday, June 10th on Lifetime!

Stalked by my Doctor patient's revenge lifetime
The gross doctor who loves his patients just a little (okay, a lot!) too much is back again, and this time so is his original victim, Sophie Green! Yep, Eric Roberts returns in one of his most awesome, scenery chewing roles, and Brianna Chomer is back as well, now in goth form! Dr. Beck is now a college teacher and taking full advantage of how screwed up the sexual harassment problems are at our universities. This being Lifetime and the third entry in an amazing franchise, this will be full of the awesome stuff we’ve come to expect! Doug Campbell returns to write and direct. While we’ve been too busy to review the second film, we do have a look at the original Stalked by My Doctor, and be sure to check out Stalked by My Doctor: Patient’s Revenge on Lifetime, June 10th!

After a jury finds him not guilty of the kidnapping and attempted murder of a former patient, the mentally disturbed Dr. Albert Beck vows to rehabilitate himself. When he lands a teaching job at a prestigious Arizona medical school, he immediately develops a crush on a new student, Melissa, and struggles to keep his growing obsession from taking control of his life. Meanwhile, Dr. Beck’s former patient and victim, Sophie Green is still furious at losing her court case against him and decides to enroll in the medical school where he is teaching — so she can mete out her own form of personal justice. Eric Roberts, Anna Marie Dobbins, Rico Simonini, and Brianna Chomer star.

Lifetime breaks out the Girl in the Bunker!

Girl in the bunker Lifetime
As long as creeps keep kidnapping women and hiding them in weird locations, Lifetime will be there to have movie event nights with both a new Original Movie plus a documentary based on the true events! It’s a double rating bonanza and this time our creep is the guy who kidnapped Elizabeth Shoaf in 2006. Girl in the Bunker is her story and will be followed by Elizabeth Shoaf: The Girl in a Bunker, where Elizabeth herself details her account! Julia Lalonde plays Elizabeth Shoaf, with ET star Henry Thomas as the kidnapper Vinson Filyaw, and Moira Kelly as Elizabeth’s mother. Girl in the Bunker is written and directed by Stephen Kemp (Who did the prior Lifetime film event Girl in the Box)

Based on the true story of Elizabeth Shoaf, who was abducted in 2006 and held captive in a hidden underground bunker. The film will be followed at 10 PM by the docu-special Elizabeth Shoaf: The Girl in a Bunker, which recounts the terrifying true story in Shoaf’s own words) While walking home from the school bus stop, a man dressed as sheriff’s deputy handcuffs Elizabeth (Lalonde) for marijuana possession and marches her deep into the woods against her protests and places her in an underground bunker. Elizabeth’s sudden disappearance sparks a massive police search with hundreds of volunteers and officers fanning through miles of dense woodland while helicopters circled overhead. At the mercy of a dangerous and psychologically unhinged captor, Vinson Filyaw (Thomas), a fugitive sexual predator, Elizabeth realizes that in order to survive, she must take matters into her own hands and gradually begins to win his trust as she plots her escape. Kelly portrays Elizabeth’s mother Madeline.

Girl in the Bunker premieres Monday, May 28th on Lifetime!

Meow Brings a Giant Alien Cat Invasion!

New Hong Kong fantasy Meow features a family that adopts a giant cat, who just happens to be a vanguard of an invasion of Earth to turn people into pets. If this sounds ridiculous, you are correct, it is ridiculous. It’s also very very real! Emperor Motion Pictures is the production company behind Meow, and it’s directed by Benny Chan Muk-Sing (Gen-X Cops, New Police Story)

“There are very few fantasy films in Hong Kong and that’s precisely why we made this one,” said director Benny Chan. It was produced on a budget of over $14.5 million (RMB100 million).

Meow stars Louis Koo Tin-Lok, Mary Ma Li, Liu Chu-Tian, Louis Yuen Siu-Cheung, Wong Sing-Yuen, and Michelle Wai.

If the giant orange cat doing things looks vaguely familiar, it might be because of the Mannings Cat advertising campaign that started in 2011, where a cat searches for a magic herb to heal its master, only to be defeated by the herb wilting and then just buying a cure from Mannings:

Obviously very inspired. Meow looks ridiculous and I hope it does well just to help fund other ridiculous stuff, but I honestly don’t have that much confidence. Still, how many movies have giant alien cats shooting laser eyes? Avengers, eat your heart out!
