Mistress Hunter
If you ever wondered what we would get if Pulp Fiction‘s Winston Wolfe was lending his skills to the Lifetime Movies-verse, then Mistress Hunter is for you! It might also be seen as Taken by way of Lifetime movies, as the Mistress Hunter has a special set of skills, namely getting revenge on cheating husbands, in that she helps gather evidence for a divorce and breaks up the cheating couple in the process. She also has a secret office, uses a fake name, and communicates with the wronged wife via randomly encountering her on the street while dressed in different costumes. That’s just the premise for the normal story before all the inevitable betrayals, twists, and murders happen! This is the kind of bonkers Lifetime stuff I love, it’s the standard betrayed by a man story on steroids with a great hook that it doesn’t lean so heavily on that the story is compromised.

Jackie (Lauralee Bell) is your typical housewife in the fancy burbs with a young daughter and a bankster husband, Karl (Martin Copping), who has an eye that has wandered all over a side chick named Beth (Chloe Brooks). Jackie gets suspicious due to Karl being very bad at covering his tracks (the ol’ “Busy at work” but not actually at work thing!) and becomes a wreck. Her friend Valerie (Lauren Plaxco) recommends to her a woman she heard of called the Mistress Hunter, who handles these situations. And then the film gets sensational!

Newlywed and Dead betrays vows on Lifetime!

Newlywed and Dead Lifetime

Stop marrying people who have huge paintings of the spouses they murdered, people!

Lifetime returns to the bottomless well of stories about people who marry people without knowing who they really are with Newlywed and Dead, as yet another naive young woman marries a guy who turns out to be a crazed murderer. Whoops! At least her movie’s title rhymes! When will women learn that all men are evil and they should stay away from all men forever? Also all women are evil, so stay away from them as well. Basically, become a hermit, it’s the Lifetime way!

Young newlywed Kristin begins to doubt her husband Jay’s love when his aunt and rival is found murdered. Kristin starts to investigate the death, and Jay’s checkered past, only to become his next target.

Newlywed and Dead stars Shenae Grimes-Beech (90210), Samantha Ferris (The Gourmet Detective: A Healthy Place to Die), Venus Terzo (Baby Sellers), Brent Stait (Final Destination 5), Lindsay Navarro (Girl Fight), and Laci J. Mailey (Falling Skies). It’s directed by Penelope Buitenhuis (Not With My Daughter) and written by Linda J. Cowgill (Opposing Force) and Rhys Davies (There’s Always Two)

Newlywed and Dead premieres Saturday, July 2nd on Lifetime!
