Doomsday cults go killer crazy on Lifetime’s Ungodly Acts!

Ungodly Acts Lifetime
Don’t you hate it when doomsday cults go on murder sprees and leave dead bodies all over the local parks and then get all confused when their dates of the rapture pass by with no one ascending to Heaven? Lifetime has heard your anguished cries and is severing up a heavy dose of religious wackery with Ungodly Acts! We got a doomsday cult, a “did they or didn’t they” for if the cult ordered a murder, and flashbacks and different stories of the truth. This looks like some good Lifetime fun!

Inspired by actual events. When Melissa Cooper’s body is found hanging from a swing set, the 27-year-old’s death is initially ruled a suicide. But two weeks later a young man, Adam, comes forward claiming he murdered Melissa on the orders of her husband, Daniel Cooper. Adam says that Daniel is the leader of an end times religious cult and that Daniel controls every aspect of the followers’ lives. Daniel Cooper denies all wrongdoing in his wife’s death, but other members of the “Church of the Blessed Light” claim that the charismatic Daniel indeed has a secret life. Melissa’s case is investigated, exploring what really went on behind closed doors in Daniel and Melissa’s marriage, whether Adam acted on his own accord, if Melissa was killed on the orders of her fanatical, newlywed husband or, if Melissa was murdered at all.

Ungodly Acts stars Megan Park, Brant Daugherty, Morgan Taylor Campbell, Christie Burke, and Ashleigh Gryzko. It’s directed by Carl Bessai, who helmed that unneeded Embrace of the Vampire remake that forgot to have a popular actress as the main character, and written by Paul Ziller (cool flick Sea Beast)

Ungodly Acts premieres Saturday, September 19th on Lifetime!

A Wish Come True blows out its candles on Hallmark Channel!

A Wish Come True Hallmark

My wish was to be in the rich people cars in Snowpiercer and it came true! Thanks, Hallmark Channel!


If I know anything, it’s that this youth-obsessed culture of ours seems to think that women over thirty are trash, and if they aren’t married by then, they are extra trash with trashy cherries on top. Hence all that dating advice about never dating a 29-year-old, because she’ll just want to get married. Luckily, as modern women are sticking their middle fingers up to this nonsense and getting married if and when they damn well please, the anxiety of turning thirty is beginning to lose a tiny bit of its power. But it is still very powerful, hence becoming the magic motivator of Hallmark Channel’s latest movie, A Wish Come True!

On the night of her 30th birthday, Lindsay Corwin, an unlucky environmentalist with a string of bad relationships, decides to make the ultimate wish: for all of her birthday wishes to come true. When her nearly three decades of wishes, including everything from losing weight to meeting Mr. Right, start magically coming true all at once, Lindsay is awestruck — until she
realizes the life and the man, she’s always wished for might not be the one she really wants.

I remember on my 30th birthday, I tried wishing in one hand, and crapping in the other. Then the police said I was making “a scene” at the Target. I never wished again…

A Wish Come True features a special appearance by Dean Cain as Dean Cain. Yes, he’s transitioned from playing characters in dozens of low-budget films into playing himself in low-budget films!

In addition to Dean Cain, A Wish Come True stars Megan Park (So Undercover) as Lindsay, Benjamin Hollingsworth (PopFan) as Dave, Anthony Lemke (American Psycho) as Reed, and Aidan Shipley (Frenemies) as Joey. Mark Rosman (the classic Disney Channel flick Life-Size) writes and directs. A Wish Come True was originally titled 30th Birthday.

A Wish Come True premieres Saturday, January 31 on Hallmark Channel. It’s part of their Countdown to Valentine’s Day event, where they play 300 hours of romantic movies including a bunch of new stuff like this.
